North American Summer Tour and EP Release announced

Friends,

we are very excited to announce the international release of my EP, ‘Not Built To Last’ on 5th August, 2014, digitally worldwide via Blood Thinner Records. To celebrate we kick off the tour at Edmonton Folk Festival in Alberta, Canada and then play a string of East Coast Dates in the USA and Canada.

Here’s some words about ‘Not Built To Last’.

‘Not Built To Last’ has been released to glowing reviews in Australia, the Sydney Morning Herald said “this guy is one of the country’s contemporary legends…file it under K for Keeper” in a 4.5 star review, while The Brag said “there  are few musicians who can find, develop and master their own style as quickly or as professionally as Jordie Lane has done”.

 Recorded at The Casino in Nashville over 3 days, ‘Not Built To Last’ is produced by Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle, Caitlin Rose, Wanda Jackson) and features an all-star Nashville band. Over five songs, Lane embraces a classic 70’s aesthetic, launching with the shining and infectious ‘Here She Comes’, followed by the desolate, and moody ‘Dead Of Light’, which closes with a Daft Punk inspired groove over the line “we’re not built to last”. ‘Maybe Someday’ see’s Lane unleash his soaring vocal on a bittersweet, Brunswick Street inspired love song, while ‘Lost In You’ harks back to the lyrical folk sound he has built his reputation on. Lane tips his hat to fellow Melbourne songwriter Brendan Welch on the closer ‘Think I Always Thought’, which encapsulates the record’s defining themes of transience and mortality
