Laura Jean

Laura Jean returns to the Theatre Royal for the first time in over three years, to preview her forthcoming album Amateurs – out through Chapter Music in early November.

Amateurs is a stunning, string-laden album, set at a mystical midway point between the deep synth-pop of Laura’s last album, Devotion, and the folkier sounds of her earlier work. Recorded in Stanmore and St Peters on Gadigal Country in-between the long 2020-2021 lockdowns, Amateurs is an album about anti-art and anti-intellectual culture, that sees Laura questioning her role as a songwriter and examining the reality of her choice to prioritise art over other parts of her life. It is also a warmhearted, humorous and sonically breathtaking album.

Laura Jean at the Theatre Royal Castlemaine is proudly supported by Gold Sounds Music Conference, a four-day event designed to bring together the Victorian music communities, held in Castlemaine, on Djaara country, from 13-16 October.
