What do you hate about the music industry?

Meeting a lot of people who think they know everything about this industry but have obviously not really lived it. You see, there are so many people out there who think they have the answers about how you should do it. And sometimes they have good ideas, but sometimes you forget that if you really listen to yourself you can’t go (too) wrong....

A gentle grind of vintage folk-pop, Jordie Lane pushes the tremolo in his voice while brandishing touches of George Harrison slide guitar and Revolver harmonies. It’s a well put together piece of work, thought the slide action could have been giving more of an airing, but Jordie’s voice still proves capable of carrying the majority of the load.

In an emerald green suede blazer and polka-dot shirt, tonight Jordie Lane was in high definition. The first of three shows in his hometown of Northcote was characterised by clarity. Lane’s very audible in between song banter was casually conversational and humourous, particularly his recount of seeking a sandwich in LA only finding himself thrust into an AA meeting, where he had no choice but...

A raconteur at heart, Jordie Lane understands the key to songwriting is to keep moving. The singer-songwriter’s rustic and charming folk-rock also has roots in American music, which has lead to multiple trips abroad. Yet as important as folk, rock and country have been to his upbringing, Lane insists it is the people he’s met since he began writing and travelling who have had the greatest...

There’s something very Tyrannosaurus Rex (easing into T Rex’s glam tendencies) about Fool For Love. Reaching outward from a folky troubadour core, Jordie Lane grins in the eye of a psychedelic storm whipping up some I Am The Walrus-style choral shrieks.

Gram Parsons’ life is a tabloid example of talent, excess, tragedy and missed opportunities. Born into a successful, if troubled musical family, at the age of 12 Parsons lost his father to suicide; five years later his alcoholic mother was also dead. Parsons became heir to his parents’ fortune, and dipped regularly into his trust fund account to finance his increasingly excessive lifestyle. As...
