JULIA JACKLIN Announces Solo Australian Tour

Julia Jacklin will head out on her first ever headline solo tour in July and August, taking in 17 shows across the East Coast. 

The tour will include a third attempt to play at the Sydney Recital Hall after the first two dates were postponed due to COVID, and replacement shows in Melbourne, after RISING Festival was unfortunately cancelled in May. It also incorporates a series of intimate regional gigs, most notably a rare show where Jacklin grew up in the Blue Mountains. 

Jacklin will be performing songs from her much-loved records Don’t Let The Kids Win and Crushing, alongside brand new songs, first-time performances of her poignant and timely 2020 Sub Pop 7” release to ‘Perth before the border Closes / Cry’ and instant indie Christmas classic ‘Baby Jesus is Nobody’s Baby Now’. These shows will showcase Jacklin’s songs the way they were written, with her sublime voice and wry humour taking centre stage. 

Feel the full weight of her talents as she distils her craft to its most profound, majestic, and empowering self. 

Julia Jacklin’s most recent album ‘Crushing’ earned her global acclaim, winning best Bluegrass/Folk album at the 2019 Libera Awards and Best Blues & Roots Album at the recent AIR awards. It also received 6x ARIA Award nominations in 2019 and 3x Australian Independent Music Award nominations. It was named one of the best albums of the year by outlets all over the globe including Pitchfork, NPR, Consequence of Sound, The AU Review (#1), Double J, The Skinny, Loud and Quiet, Paste Magazine, Uncut, Resident and many more. Jacklin sold out shows across North America, the UK and Australia and her songs have been shared and performed by everyone from Lana Del Rey to Elton John, Kendall Jenner, and Brie Larson.
