Born to a comedian & a clown, Nashville based Australian Indie-Roots artist, Jordie Lane spent his early years in a traveling circus. His nomadic touring lifestyle and knack for comedic storytelling confirm the theory one is a product of their upbringing, but when you watch Jordie perform live it is his incredible voice and unique rhythmic guitar playing that seem like they come from another place and another time.
It is a voice that has taken him around the world, performing major festivals in the US, Canada, UK and Australia, and touring with the likes of international legends, Gotye, Billy Bragg, Old Crow Medicine Show, Neko Case, Cat Power, The Weakerthans, Ruthie Foster, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and The Moody Blues.
Lane has performed duets with US artists, Mary Gauthier, Ruthie Foster, and Eilen Jewel, and most recently toured as Opening act and backing band for songwriter Kim Richey.
He’s been a guest on hit Australian TV shows, ‘Spicks & Specks’ and ‘Rock Wiz’, and was also invited to perform Triple J Radio’s coveted ‘Like A Version’ with fellow Australian & Milk Records artist Jen Cloher.
Jordie’s songwriting and musicianship have taken him places off the regular touring circuit including composing the score and soundtrack for Australian Documentary ‘Spirit Walker – Clinton’s Walk For Justice.
He also co-wrote and starred in the sell-out season of ‘Scotty & Son’, at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, which almost took home the gong for ‘Best Show of The Festival’.
Meeting co-writer, producer and multi instrumentalist Clare Reynolds was where a truly magical sound for the ages was formed.
A vocal and instrumental harmonic quality matched by few other partnerships, their symbiotic connection has been likened to floating somewhere between Gillian Welch & David Rawlings and Shovels & Rope.
Their latest EP, ‘Lost’ features legendary drummer Jim Keltner (Traveling Wilburys, John Lennon) and mixed by local Jordan Lehning (Rayland Baxter, Josh Headley). It has seen big love from Spotify & Amazon with adds to ‘Fresh Folk’, ‘Coffee & Chill’ and ‘Fresh Folk & Americana’, along with National play-listing on Australia’s ABC & Double J Radio networks.
The new EP, ‘Lost’ is out now on Blood Thinner Records / Tone Tree Music
