Jen Cloher (Ngapuhi & Ngati Kahu) is a songwriter and performer living on unceded Wurundjeri land in Naarm (Melbourne). Cloher’s taut, terse brand of rock is charged with the static tension that comes with being an eternal misfit. Over the course of five albums, Cloher has won a J Award and an AIR Award and been nominated for an ARIA and the Australian Music Prize. 

I Am The River, The River Is Me, Cloher’s fifth album, is verdant and rich; it luxuriates in stillness, and carries itself with cool, unfussy confidence. Inspired by Cloher’s powerful matrilineal line of wahine Maori, I Am The River, The River Is Me was recorded between Aotearoa (NZ) and Naarm (Melbourne) with producers Tom Healy (Tiny Ruins, Marlon Williams), Anika Ostendorf (Hachiku) and Cloher’s longtime drummer Jen Sholakis; the album brings in trailblazing artists including Emma Donovan (Gumbaynggirr, Yamatji), Kylie Auldist, Liz Stringer, Te Kaahu (Waikato-Tainui, Ngati Tipa), Ruby Solly (Kai Tahu, Waitaha, Kati Mamoe) and members of the Naarm-based Kapa Haka, Te Hononga o nga Iwi. The entire record feels communal - a celebration not just of Cloher, but of the rich, life-filled communities that surround them.
