Adelaide-based singer/songwriter Jen Lush has transformed poems by 12 of Australia’s most respected contemporary poets into songs for her debut solo album, The Night’s Insomnia. Lush is best known for her work with folk-pop band Cat Dog Bird and electronic experimentalists Suvome, and her diverse musical background coalesces on The Night’s Insomnia.

 

The album comes with a companion book of the poetry, poet’s commentaries and photographs. The book will be launched at Imprints Booksellers in Adelaide on the 9th June, and the album at The Wheatsheaf hotel, Adelaide on June 18th.
