‘It is a quiet urgency that makes Laura Jean compelling’

The Monthly

Melbourne born singer-songwriter Laura Jean became an indie folk sensation with the release of her debut album in 2006. Championed by Snow Patrol and Bon Iver, she went on to record with Paul Kelly, The Drones and Oh Mercy, tour with Marlon Williams, Aldous Harding, Adalita and Jenny Hval, and perform at the National Gallery of Victoria, Dark Mofo and the Sydney Town Hall. Her eponymous 2014 album was shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize and described as ‘an uncompromising triumph’ by Rolling Stone.

Revered for the striking beauty of her voice and the piercing immediacy of her lyrics, Laura Jean has embraced a multitude of styles, from the classically-inspired folk of Our Swan Song, to the bright synth pop of 2018’s Devotion – a nostalgic, coastal-inspired love letter to youth gone by.
