With a career spanning 9 years, 8 releases under his belt, named in Melbourne Magazine’s 100 most influential people, and nominated for Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s ‘Barry Award’, Jordie Lane is widely regarded as one of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters.
The much loved Australian indie roots artist, who recently moved from Melbourne to LA to Nashville, is malleable and resilient despite the torrent of changes that have come his way. His upcoming release, GLASSELLLAND, out September 7 worldwide, combines the desert Tropicalia influences of his homeland with the modern Southwestern folk of his new home.
Produced by Clare Reynolds (Timbaland, Haley Reinhart, Greyson Chance), the two created GLASSELLLAND in teardown transitory studios, which they built and deconstructed in varying spaces in Northeast Los Angeles. “With the studio doubling as a kitchen, and no door to the bedroom, there was really no escaping the music.” On top of building the studio space, they also engineered and played every sound on the album, making the endeavor highly personal.
Born to a comedian & a clown, Lane spent his early years in a traveling circus. His nomadic touring lifestyle and knack for comedic storytelling confirm the theory one is a product of their upbringing, but when you watch Jordie perform live it is his incredible voice and rhythmic guitar playing that seem like they come from another place and another time.
Join us for the release show of Backyard Birds, a collection of 7 songs recorded by Lisa Bastoni and Sean Staples over the winter of 2020/2021.
Singer-songwriter Lisa Bastoni is a 2019 Kerrville New Folk Winner, and is a 2019 Boston Music Award nominee (Folk Artist of the Year). Her new album, How We Want to Live (September 2019), chronicles life changes, including songs about the dissolution of her marriage and learning to live a new normal — but more than anything, it finds the songwriter diving deeper into the life she craves.
How We Want to Live, produced by award-winning songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist Sean Staples, features guest performances by Mark Erelli, Rose Cousins, Lula Wiles and Naomi Sommers.
Lisa Bastoni has shared the stage with Lori McKenna, Little Big Town, Arlo Guthrie, Regina Spektor, The Secret Sisters, Teddy Thompson, and many more.
Songs from How We Want to Live have been featured in Billboard Country, Wide Open Country, PopMatters, and The Bluegrass Situation.
Known for her joyful wordplay and tap-dance breaks, Evie’s first album, ‘Verbatim’ was released in 2013 and upon release, Sara Bareilles quoted that she has “a great voice and a really unique sound!”
Since then Evie has toured the globe playing everywhere from streets in London to famous bars in Seattle and even on Caribbean cruise lines. She has studied opera for 12 years and enjoys bubble tea and doing good deeds in a skunk costume (for anonymity purposes ;). She is also organizing a large-scale project to distribute and teach the homeless to play ukulele and planning a Ted Talk for her created music genre: ukulele rap. She now resides with her uke, Ed, in New York City. They’re going on 6 years and going strong.
