Australia's Storytelling Troubadour Jordie Lane has just come off the back of an epic 2 year world tour of his critically acclaimed Nashville recorded EP, 'Not Built To Last’, and is not showing any signs of stopping with the release of his brand new single, ‘Frederick Steele McNeil Ferguson’.
Renowned for both his relentless international touring schedule and comedic storytelling (which is as much ramble as it is insight), it’s Lane’s unique guitar style and the unmistakable character of his voice that is, simply otherworldly.
Accompanied by the multi-talented singer/songwriter Clare Reynolds on among other things, a Guitar Case Drum? they've been sharing their immensely powerful harmonies and unique instrumentation right across the globe with coveted appearances at Philadelphia Folk Festival(US), Edmonton, Calgary & Winnipeg Folk Festivals (Canada) and Celtic Connections (Scotland). And appearances on NPR's 'Folk Alley' and 'Mountain Stage'.
While relatively new to US audiences, Australia’s leading folk/roots outlet Rhythms Magazine have called Lane “one of Australia’s brightest new roots music stars” and Rolling Stone Magazine said his debut album Sleeping Patterns “may come to be regarded as one of the most assured ever by a local artist”.
Born to a comedian & a clown, 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 Lane perform it is his incredible voice and 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 Billy Bragg, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Old Crow Medicine Show, Neko Case, Cat Power, Ruthie Foster and The Moody Blues.
“Take pieces of Jeff Tweedy, Ron Sexsmith and Jackson Browne, melt them down in a beautiful crucible of music and you end up with Jordie Lane: a truly diverse folk musician” FBI Radio
“A young man with an old soul and an honest sound, harkening back to Gram Parsons and Bob Dylan” – The Bluegrass Situation
“When two voices meld together something magical happens. And there’s plenty of magic, as Australians Jordie Lane and Clare Reynolds harmonise their way into the hearts of the enthusiastic crowd.
