PRESS RELEASE:

Jordie Lane
Announces 2015 New Zealand Tour

Australian singer/songwriter Jordie Lane returns to New Zealand in March for his first national tour in two years, playing songs from his latest EP Not Built To Last, and acclaimed records Blood Thinner and Sleeping Patterns.

Based in the US, Lane has spent 2014 touring his latest EP Not Built To Last around North America, including performances at Philadelphia & Edmonton Folk Festivals, a 30-date Canadian tour Old Man Luedecke and a 35-date US tour with rising folk band The Stray Birds.

He will be performing in Australia as a duo with Clare Reynolds, who featured on Not Built To Last and has become a regular part of Lane’s live show over the past two years. The pair first performed together in 2012, when starring in the theatre show ‘Grievous Angel: The Legend of Gram Parsons’.

They play shows in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Nelson

Background on Jordie Lane

Jordie Lane’s music seems like it comes from another place and time. The songs are nostalgic and immediately affecting, his rhythmic guitar playing is authentic and raw, and the rich resonance of his voice is simply otherworldly.

It is a voice that has taken Lane around the world, performing major festivals in the US, Canada, UK and Australia, touring with the likes of Billy Bragg, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Old Crow Medicine Show, Neko Case, and The Moody Blues and being nominated for ‘Best Blues & Roots Album’ at the Australian Independent Music Awards.

PRAISE FOR JORDIE LANE

“...one of the country’s contemporary legends...this gets filed under K, for Keeper” - Sydney Morning Herald

“Lane has a strong voice which cracks with emotion in all the right places, couches his songs in fingerpicked guitars, pulls you into a lyric and like Van Zandt he gives the sense of being an outsider who sees more than most.” - Graham Reid, Elsewhere.co.nz

“Upfront and honest, warm and detailed” - Otago Daily Times

“He’s got a style that transports your mind back to simpler times and a mind-blowing ability to sing finger-picked woes of lost lovers that echo the stories of your very soul.” - Rip It Up Magazine

“Take pieces of 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
