A holiday-turned-extended stint in the U.S.A, proved very fruitful for Melbourne's Jordie Lane, who returned home to Australia with a brand new unexpected album in tow this July.

Receiving outstanding reviews and radio features across the country,it has just been nominated for 'Best Blues & Roots Album' in the Jagameister Indi Music Awards 2011, and he's been nominated for 'Best Album' and 'Best male Artist' in the Age EG Awards 2011.
Jordie recently completed a 'sold out' national tour of nearly 30 dates across Australia in July and August, and is now on a seemingly endless tour with local and international artists including The Moody Blues(UK), Jeff Lang, Joe Pug (USA), and Henry Wagons.
After releasing his highly acclaimed debut album Sleeping Patterns in June 09, Jordie has since played sold-out tours across the country, including two Spiegeltent seasons, and has appeared several times on ABC TV's Spicks and Specks, and SBS's RockWiz, as well as being included on Triple J's "Like A Version Vol 6, for his brilliant version of MGMT's 'Electric Feel' with Jen Cloher.

Young man, old soul. Jordie Lane is in his mid 20s, but he sounds like an old-school troubadour, a man with a million stories to tell
"He's delivered an intimate, beautifully sombre record that shimmers in the glow of earthy Americana."
