TURNING GROUND
from
Salyersville, Kentucky

We met up with Jordie Lane at The Philadelphia Folklong  Society. Jordie travels with his Producer and band-mate Clare Reynolds.  Both from Australia, they lived in L.A. but recently relocated to Nashville. 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.
