Jack River

Some artists are a voice through a microphone… and others are a voice for change. With tens of millions of streams, and both gold and platinum singles, Jack River has pioneered a new form of artistry that brings together kick-arse songs with meaningful advocacy. 

Her debut album Sugar Mountain quickly rustled ARIA Award attention and global attention. A writer, entrepreneur and promoter, River inaugurated the annual Grow Your Own Festival in her hometown of Forster – promoting local and sustainable culture – and in 2017 co-founded Electric Lady, a movement curating all-women stages. Her advocacy for local music kicked off a viral campaign resulting in Our Soundtrack Our Stories, advocating for local music in an increasingly-global industry.

Recent single We Are The Youth draws from a long-held passion for climate and environmental movements, and pays homage to the forebears – artists like Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, whose music doubled as powerful political statements. The result is a heady, electrifying mix of warped guitars and stomping percussion. The times are indeed a-changin’.
