Jack River had an enormous 2018 with the release of her debut album Sugar Mountain to widespread critical acclaim, countless sold out shows and three ARIA nominations. In May of 2019 Jack will tour her Sugar Mountain Ball in the biggest rooms she has ever 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.”

Joining Jack River for the ride is Brisbane pop princess Eves Karydas who’s most recent tracks include 'Further Than The Planes Fly', ‘Wildest Ones' and ‘Couch’. Opening proceedings across all shows will be Gold Coast local San Mei, who’s guitar-heavy, delay-ridden, dreamy pop can be heard on tracks ‘Wonder’, ‘Heaven’ and ‘Two Planets’.

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.
