Jen Cloher is an Australian folk rock singer-songwriter, currently based in Melbourne, Victoria. Originally from Adelaide, Cloher originally moved to Sydney to pursue a degree at NIDA. Following her graduation, Cloher instead decided to begin playing music as opposed to continuing with acting. Her first EP, Permanent Marker, was released via Shiny Records in 2005. Until 2012, this would be the only release baring solely Cloher's name.
