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, its Lane & Reynolds dynamic harmonies that make this an exquisitely intense Indi-Folk Ballad.
When asked about the creation of the song and the powerful refrain, I just wanna love, breathe and bleed blood, Jordie reflects:
Originally I started the song, alone, in somewhat of a miserable state, in motel room in the Mojave desert, and it was me beginning to acknowledge the physicality of anxiety taking hold.
But when I took the idea to Clare, it totally flipped its context and became a song about not feeling alone, about facing these things together, however gritty they may get.
Recorded and Produced by fellow Australian & LA transplant Ben Tolliday (Lord Huron),
and Mixed by Jordan Lehning (Rayland Baxter, Rodney Crowell),
The EP, Lost is out worldwide, June 7th on Blood Thinner Records / Tone Tree Music.
