We are very pleased to announce Jordie Lane has joined forces with ABC Music Publishing for Australia and New Zealand. ABC Music Publishing represent some of Australia’s most recognised songwriters and composers such as You am I, Ben Salter, William Crighton, The Wilson Pickers, Ruby Boots Tim Rogers, Davey Lane, Mojo Juju and many more. They believe that songwriting and composing is the heartland of the music business. Jordie is excited to collaborate with the team at ABC, working his back catalogue as well as focusing on his future musical endeavors.
I’ll be returning to Australia briefly in April to play one special Melbourne show at the launch of The Melbourne Folk Club on Wednesday April 23rd. It is a brand new weekly event running at the Bella Union in Carlton, and I will be launching it with the lovely Clare Reynolds singing with me, plus a secret international guest. You can see what it’s all about at www.themelbournefolkclub.com and buy tickets there.
Clare and I will also be returning to the National Folk Festival for the second year in a row, playing 5 shows over the weekend. The line up includes other legends like Old Man Luedecke, Tift Merritt, Lindi Ortega and The Mae Trio. All the info for that at www.folkfestival.org.au
