Jen is a self-managed independent artist based in Melbourne. After graduating from acting at NIDA, she decided to pursue a career in music. Her first album Dead Wood Falls was nominated for an ARIA for Best Female Artist. Her second album Hidden Hands was named as one of the top ten releases of 2009 by The AGE. It was also nominated for three AGE EG awards including Best Song and Best Album. Her third album In Blood Memory is due for release in late 2012.

In 2011 Cloher launched a new series of workshops called I Manage My Music, specifically tailored to assist the self-managed artist. Guest speakers have included Wally De Backer (Gotye), Mick Harvey (Nick Cave/PJ Harvey), Carlo Santone (Blue King Brown), Fiona Kitschin and Gareth Liddiard (The Drones). In 2012 I Manage My Music will also be offered in Sydney. Visit www.imanagemymusic.com.
