Jen Cloher's 2013 album In Blood Memory marked the beginning of a new era for an artist who'd spent almost a decade as one of the country's best folk-leaning singer-songwriters. Backed by a formidable trio (Courtney Barnett, Bones Sloane and Jen Sholakis), In Blood Memory is in turn grittier, groovier, more beautiful and more devastatingly honest than any work she's produced before. It was shortlisted for that years Australian Music Prize (Australia's most prestigious music award) -- and rightfully so. When not running her label Milk! Records (Courtney Barnett, Loose Tooth, Fraser A. Gorman and more) Cloher has been working on her fourth record -- due to be released later in 2017.
Mia Dyson is a four time ARIA nominated and award winning Australian singer songwriter and guitarist currently living in Los Angeles. She's toured with the likes of Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, Chris Isaak and Joe Cocker.
She has just released her second American made album “Idyllwild”, a “Brilliant” (Daytrotter) and "bold new venture" (TheMusic.au) that finds her continuing to explore the boundaries of what one woman can do with a rock and roll band, a guitar built by her father, and “a sublime grit & gravel voice that lands her squarely between Lucinda Williams & Bob Dylan”(Boston Globe).
