Widely regarded as one of Australia’s finest young singer-songwriters, Jordie Lane has returned to Australia, with his first full length studio album in 5 years, GLASSELLLAND (pronounced Glas-Sell-Land). A bold and adventurous record, recorded in Los Angeles, that sees Lane extend his musical boundaries far beyond his previous acclaimed Folk and Alt. Country sound.
Fresh from a triumphant National Album tour, Jordie Lane has been receiving rave reviews for his thought-provoking ferocious live shows, being named highlights at many of the country’s top festivals including Woodford, Mullumbimby, Queenscliff, and Fremantle in 2016.
The album itself has been praised by the press across the board with 4 star reviews in The Music, Rolling Stone, Herald Sun and was named ‘Double J Album Of The Week’ and the song ‘Black Diamond’ was awarded the ‘Tower Of Song Of The Year’ also on Double J Radio.
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 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.
