Jordan is a 3 time Tui Award (New Zealand Grammy) nominee, and has lent her voice to projects from Cafe Del Mar through to Lord of the Rings. Jordan's festival appearances include Glastonbury (UK), The New Zealand International Festival of the Arts (NZ), Wave Gothic Treffen (Germany), The Big Day Out (NZ / Aus), Frankfurt Music Messe (Germany), Whitby Gothic Weekend (UK) and many more. Her wide appeal has led to supports for bands as diverse as Feilds of the Nephilim, New Model Army, White Zombie and the Eden House.
Jordan grew up on a remote peninsula on New Zealand's west coast, 3 hours drive from the nearest city. She began making music by collecting bits of iron and discarded farm implements, banging them together and singing at the top of her lungs. When her parents could stand it no longer, they bought her a guitar. Her sense of the land, and peoples relationships to machines and nature remain a key part of her work.
'may just be making the most important sound of this year. ...simply stunning. A thoroughly unique work of art from start to finish... Whether by hook or crook, you MUST own this album. RATING - 5 / 5' BBC 4 (UK)
"one of the most extraordinarily fascinating live shows I have ever seen on stage... one of the best – if not the best – folk performers out there today... she's spellbinding", Cat on the Wall (UK).
"It is hard to categorise music this original - PJ Harey springs to mind, but the style is 100% Jordans... Her vocals are astounding".The Mix (UK)
