Jen Cloher and The Endless Sea Live at The Gov' July 2005
Jen Cloher and The Endless Sea waded through a sea of initial indifference by much of the large crowd that was more intent on talking, drinking and smoking! Three songs in and things were changing. Any band that performs tracks from Bruce Springsteen’s “Nebraska”(State Trooper) and Gillian Welch’s “Soul Journey”(Look at Miss Ohio) has won me over. Michael Hubbard’s lead and slide guitar work was a delight to behold. Vocalist Jen Cohler has a dynamic presence. Her delivery became increasingly stronger and more emphatic to the extent that by the end of the set she had most of the crowd enthralled. Mention was made of an upcoming initial CD release in October. Watch out for it ‘cause this is a band that will go places, riding high on the Triple J boosted “nouveau roots”resurgence.
