Song of the Week: “Strong Woman” by Jen Cloher

by Douglas Cowie on 16 February 2018

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Strong Woman” by Jen Cloher:

This week on the advice of my Australia-based pal Jeff I went to see Jen Cloher. It was a really good show. Her band, two guitars, bass, drums, had a big sound (the drummer has a Slayer-sized bass drum), and Jen Cloher herself writes good songs, has a good voice, and maybe most of all, performs with a nonchalant and natural swagger. Courtney Barnett’s lead guitar playing was superb as well.
