Singer-songwriter Jen Cloher has won the Lighthouse Award for her contribution to music management.

The Victorian-based award recognises excellence in the field of music management, covering work in mentoring other artists and the local music community. Cloher is self-managed and works closely with emerging artists on how to successfully manage their own careers. The musician spent a lot of time during 2013 traveling around the country for the I Manage My Music program.

Cloher dedicated her win to the late Linda Gebar, who was a prominent manager, booker and mentor in the Victorian music community until her passing in 2008.

“This award remembers the life and spirit of Linda Gebar,” Cloher said. “She worked passionately to strengthen the world-class music community we share in Melbourne. There are always people behind the good things that happen in the music industry and Linda was one of those people.”

Cloher released her latest album In Blood Memory last May. The record is part of the longlist for The Coopers AMP prize, which will name its shortlisted albums this Sunday 26 January. The singer-songwriter will perform at the announcement event.
