    With his unique finger-style guitar, blues harmonica, and a commanding voice that jumps from a Jimmie Rodgers yodel to a Springsteen-like roar, Jordie Lane is a one man band fast creating a rumble amongst not only Australia's music fans but is gaining much respect from it's songwriters too.

    This year Jordie was selected to play at the Port Fairy Folk Festival, receiving an overwhelmingly great response from audiences and fellow artists such as Luka Bloom (IRE) who attended all Jordie's performances. He's since played a diverse range of solo high profile supports for the likes of Jeff Lang, Gotye, The Basics, Neil Murray, Ash Grunwald, Toni Collette, Matt Walker, Dan Kelly and also selling out his recent headline shows in Melbourne.  Lane and the band have also played other local folk festivals including Maldon, Chewton and Folk, Rhythm & Life.

    His 2006 EP Lovers Ride  has received great support from Melbourne's Triple J, RRR & PBS. And his constant touring has helped build quite a fan base for this self managed independent songwriter who will be releasing his much anticipated debut album in 2008.

    Lane touched listeners with his earnest tales of love and loss, and humbled us with his gentle demeanor…capturing all with the raw emotion of his performance.
    (Beat Magazine - 28 March 2007)
    Now and then an artist comes along that blows you away, Jordie Lane is one such artist. On "Lovers Ride", Jordie proves he is fast becoming one of our finest singer songwriters.
    (Colin Fielding - 3INR Melbourne)
    With his smoky graveled voice and fine guitar playing, Lane does a great line in natural charm.
    (Lily Bragge - The Age)
    We caught the last three songs of local songster, Jordie Lane, who we caught with his full band at Port Fairy a couple of months ago, and while it was just him on his own tonight with guitar and harmonica, it still served to show his talent in the singer / songwriter vein. His voice is solid and clear, his mastery of his instrument deluxe.
    (Sam Fell - Northcote Social Club Review, 5 May, 2007)
    We recently did an Australian-Americana special here on Americana OK. The inspiration for the show was the stunning Jordie Lane seven track EP "Lovers Ride". Every track on this self released EP is a gem. Each of the seven tracks seems to represent a strand of Americana from gorgeous Townes Van Zandt type ballads to Gram Parsons style country soul. If you want to hear one of the very best Americana records of recent years listen to this. You wont be disappointed but may be surprised that it comes from Melbourne, Australia rather than Austin Texas.
    (Americana OK - (2007))
    Like two lovers dancing hip to hip, Jordie Lane's "Lovers Ride" seduces with the cuts Bottle of Her Love and Sweet Somebody. His vocals conjure up hints of Jeff Buckley, Gram Parsons and Jimmie Rodgers. (Yes the man can yodel and it is a very sexy one at that). The rockers Old Quarter Town and Drunk on Love (with Liz Stringer) kick up the passion and hits a celebratory groove. High & lonesome, vulnerable and sexy. My only complaint is that he lives half-way around the world (sigh).
    (Joan Hathaway - Three Ring Circus, WMBR, Boston, USA)
    What a great discovery! Jordie Lane sounds like he's absorbed the works of the great songwriters
    and is now able to speak with the same authority in his own music.
    (Jeff Lang - 2007)
    A truly amazing artist, emotive songwriter and performer. Jordie Lane writes the songs you wish you had written. Flaws me every time!
    (Jaimi Faulkner - 2007)
