“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.” – Culture Collide
Born to a comedian & a clown, Nashville based Australian Indie-Roots artist Jordie Lane spent his early years in a traveling circus. He’s since grown to become one of Australia’s most beloved singer-songwriters. Lane has performed major festivals in the US, Canada, UK and Australia, and toured with the likes of international legends Gotye, Billy Bragg, Old Crow Medicine Show, Neko Case, Cat Power, The Weakerthans, Mary Chapin Carpenter and The Moody Blues.
Jordie has performed duets with US artists Mary Gauthier, Ruthie Foster and Eilen Jewel, and most recently toured as the opening act and backing band for songwriter Kim Richey. He’s been a guest on hit Australian TV shows, Spicks & Specks and RocKwiz, and was also invited to perform triple j Radio’s coveted Like A Version with fellow Australian & Milk Records artist Jen Cloher.
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, Lucinda Williams) 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 playlisting on Australia’s ABC & Double J Radio networks.
With the new EP singles coming just 6 months after their last full length GLASSELLLAND, this is all just a taste of what’s to come as they have begun work on another follow up album and will be previewing new material at their Official showcase at AMERICANAFEST 2019 at Exit/In, Nashville, TN, Thursday 13th September, 8pm. The new EP Lost is out now on Blood Thinner Records / Tone Tree Music
