Off the back of an enormous year for the young artist including the release of her debut album Sugar Mountain to widespread critical acclaim, countless sold out shows and three ARIA nominations to name but a few milestones, I OH YOU are pleased to present Jack River’s Sugar Mountain Ball, touring Australian theatres this May and June in the biggest rooms Jack River has headlined.
Jack River explains, “To complete the Sugar Mountain dream I am coming out to theatres to have the prom night we all never had. I made this album to be a grand and brilliant sparkly ballroom where you pour your whole heart out on the dancefloor to heal and cry and become strong. This tour will be the realisation of that ballroom where everything will shine and melt and taste like sugar.”
Presented by and announced via triple j, the Sugar Mountain Ball will transform venues across the country into real life ballrooms reminiscent of 90’s proms past.
Jack River first gifted us her debut EP Highway Songs No. 2 in 2016 featuring the stunning singles ‘Palo Alto’ and ‘Talk Like That’. ‘Fool’s Gold’, the first single from her debut album Sugar Mountain dropped in late 2017 and marked the start of what can only be described as a whirlwind campaign for Sugar Mountain. Singles such as ‘Fault Line’, ‘Limo Song’, ‘Ballroom’ and ‘Confess’ make up an incredible album that depicts a hazy adolescent grief and loss of innocence that followed a life changing family tragedy.
“Meeting fans all around Australia over the past year has been unlike anything I ever imagined,” she explains. “The experience of sharing my songs has given me magic fuel to dream bigger and brighter - this tour will be a celebration of that. I also encourage you ALL to dress like you’re coming to the prom of your dreams.”
