Singer songwriter Jordan Reyne describes her art as “industrial-tinged celtic folk, from the edges of the earth” and she has been touring Europe for the past six years. She started her career in New Zealand where she was nominated for the New Zealand Music Awards three times, and has worked on projects including Lord of the Rings and Cafe del Mar. Her performances have included the NZ International Festival of the Arts, Big Day Out and Glastonbury.
Combining celtic themes with industrial machines and providing her own backing vocals live using an echo loop her voice is dark and powerful. Her playing and singing live is an experience of unrestrained artistic delight with an enigmatic tension. In other words, one gutsy, quality voice that works in a complex soundscape.
Here she is with her song Sister Falling, filmed at The Bowery November 2011.
Jordan has created many excellent videos you can find on her youtube channel jordanreyne – and her website http://jordanreyne.com. She records under her own label Bloodthirsty Celtic Rock Musician.

“Fascinating and intense…. here is something worth celebrating, a song writer who didn’t come down in the last shower of record company advances and marketing hype” The Dominion Post (Wellington, New Zealand)
