Jordan Reyne

Jordan Reyne Brief Biography

Jordan Reyne is an experimental musician originally from New Zealand, now living in the UK. Jordan's sound has been variously described as "industrial-tinged folk" and "antipodean Steampunk" yet defies any cut and dried genre description. She combines the two usually disparate genres of folk and industrial, bringing in Celtic vocal melody, historically based narrative and the sounds of steam, iron and industrial "found sound". Several of her releases are set in the time of the Industrial Revolution.

Jordan has been nominated three times for a New Zealand Music Award and released six full length CDs, several of which were produced with the assistance/ funding of Creative New Zealand, the New Zealand Arts Council. "How the Dead Live" (2009) was an Arts Council and Department of Conservation commission based on one of New Zealand's first pioneer women who arrived in New Zealand from Gravesend London in 1874. Her most recent release, "Children of a Factory Nation" (2012) is similarly a series of song-form tales based on fact - this time, a Welsh family who lived near Cardiff in the 1880s, and who dispersed to the workhouses of London after the death of the father at sea.
