Jordie Lane with William Rose
Born to a comedian & a clown, Australian born, Nashville based Indi-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.
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 often been likened to somewhere between Gillian Welch & David Rawlings and Shovels & Rope.
The Winner, the first single from the EP Lost, is a passionate push and pull between lovers. Instrumentally stripped bare, with little more than an acoustic guitar, it’s Lane & Reynolds dynamic harmonies that make this an exquisitely intense Indi-Folk Ballad.
“in the same way that Sturgill Simpson can bring a room to tears one minute, and have the crowd hollering for more the next, Lane plays with both harmony and grit.”
