“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

With now 8 releases under his belt, Jordie Lane is widely regarded as one of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters today.

It’s been a huge 18 months since the release of his acclaimed album ‘Glassellland’ which won a slew of praise and awards including named Double J ‘Album Of The Week’, nominated for The Age Music Victoria Awards, and winning ‘Tower Of Song Of The Year’.

Descriptions of Lane’s voice land some place between Rodney Crowell and Ron Sexsmith, with a musical style driven always by what the song asks. From finger picking folk to Rock’n’roll roots, Lane’s knack for comedic wit and storytelling are a timeless and captivating experience.

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 Jordie perform live 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 international legends, Billy Bragg, Old Crow Medicine Show, Neko Case, Cat Power, The Weakerthans, Ruthie Foster, Mary Chapin Carpenter and The Moody Blues.
