Melbourne’s own, Jordie Lane, returns to Australia after over two years of international touring, to release the first single from his eagerly awaited third album, with a Melbourne Only live launch show at The Gasometer Hotel.
Joined by the full Band for the first time in over two years, the launch will feature a host of special guests to celebrate Lane’s freshly penned folk-garage track, Frederick Steele McNeil Ferguson.
Harking back to the flavour of Bob Dylan’s ‘Street Legal’ album, with spectral female chorale and an epic landscape created with a band sound that speaks of Neil Young travelling from solo to Crazyhorse, Frederick Steele McNeil Ferguson spins a homegrown tale between a world war one veteran and the concept of ancestral sin passing down through generations.
With a makeshift mindset not unlike his approach to his critically acclaimed 2011 album, ‘Blood Thinner’, Jordie went searching for the right space to find the answers for this new project. He found a converted garage bungalow in Glassell Park, a little neighbourhood tucked in North-East Los Angeles, California. All instrumentation was recorded and engineered entirely by Lane himself, along with vocal choir arrangements by co-producer, Clare Reynolds, within the confines of this space.
