2014 has kicked off with an incredible run of international travel and amazing shows. It all began at Woodford Folk Festival in Queensland, Australia where the band and I played some cracking shows in the blistering heat before seeing in the new year at one of the worlds best festivals.
I then had a few weeks off before traveling back to LA to drop some gear off, just in time to go to the airport and fly to London. We sold out my first ever London show at the Green Note, and then went to Glasgow for Celtic Connections where I played in front of 2000 people supporting Mary Chapin Carpenter. Celtic Connections brings in amazing bands from all over the world, and I got to spend a few days with new friends The Stray Birds, and even got up for a song at their house concert in Edinburgh. See the video HERE
After a few days in New York, I arrived in Halifax to begin another tour with Old Man Luedecke, this time in the heart of the Canadian winter after our very warm summer tour of Australia in October/November. We play 25 dates around the country, and in between I jump to Folk Alliance International for a wild ride of 14 shows in 3 days with lots of friends, including The Stray Birds and Liz Stringer from back in Melbourne.
Here is a photo that captures some of the madness of the last few months!
I will head on the road with the amazing Rose Cousins for the Festival of Small Halls, which kicks off just after Mullumbimby Music Festival.
This tour goes through small regional towns in Queensland, places that have populations of 300-400 in many cases. You can check it all out at http://festivalofsmallhalls.com/
and find tour dates at by clicking on SHOWS above.
Here is a video of Rose & I singing the Guy Clark classic ‘LA Freeway’ earlier this year.

2013 has been amazing so far. We played at Folk Alliance in Toronto, came back and went on tour with Ruthie Foster and her beautiful band. There have been some memorable festivals including Moomba, Hills Are Alive, Yackandandah, and National Folk Festival.
Plenty more to come in April/May as well as headline dates in MIA MIA, HOBART, LAUNCESTON, ADELAIDE, BRISBANE, SYDNEY, & MULLUMBIMBY. Check out the shows tab for tickets and info!
Here is me and Ruthie after one of the shows…
After a little time off, we’re hitting the ground running again in February with 14 shows in 4 days at Folk Alliance in Toronto. It is a huge conference, and we’ll be playing alongside some of the best acts from Canada, the UK, and the US including Del Barber, Rose Cousins, Rachel Sermanni, James Keelaghan, Matthew Barber, Sam Carter and many more. If you are in Toronto, drop us a line and we’ll help you catch a show.
We’re back in Australia on March 7th for a big run of shows that includes intimate solo gigs around the country, 7 festivals and a tour with Grammy Nominee Ruthie Foster (she may have just won by the time you read this!)
We’re also doing some Live Lounge shows, our special house concert series that produced some of the most fun and intimate gig moments of 2012.
Check out the SHOWS tab for gig info and tickets!
Note: For those wanting to attend our A Band on Boat show on April 20th in Adelaide – email email@example.com to reserve a ticket. Very limited space available!
From November 9th ‘Fool For Love’ is free on iTunes! Here is what the lovely people of iTunes had to say about the track in their review:
“Each week we find a track from an artist or band we’ve been enjoying and bring it to you, for free as our Sing of the Week. Jordie Lane is a great storyteller who also knows how to write an infectious tune. “Fool For Love” is a break away from his meditative, folky troubadour style and into something more glorious and celebratory. The soulful warble at the core of his voice remains, giving a solid centre to this whirlwind tune that even breaks into some low key T.Rex style stomp at the end.”
