Biography

Hailed by New Zealand’s National Radio as the pioneer of a new sound, Jordans music has been variously described as “celtic industrial”, “folk noir” and “Antipodean Steampunk” yet defies any cut and dried description. Jordan combines pioneer-era industrial found sound, with folktronic loops and etherial vocal melodies to tell the extraordinary tales of ordinary people in a time where life was being turned upside down by the invenstion of new machines.
Imagine Sinead Oconnor trapped in a 19th workhouse with only Trent Reznor for company.

Jordan has been nominated for New Zealand Music Awards, recieved several Arts Council grants, scholarships and comissions, and released five CDs (two albums under the moniker “Dr Kevorkian & the Suicide Machine”).

Jordan now lives in London and Hamburg, where she performs regularly both live, and online.


International Reviews:

“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” Channel 4 (UK)

“I’d be loath to categorize music this original. PJ Harvey springs to mind, but the style is 100% Jordan’s. Her vocals are astounding”
The Mix (UK)

“one of the best dark ambient pieces of music ever to have come out of New Zealand… a thoroughly emotional and moving piece of sound art which deserves wide exposure.” – FIEND Magazine (Australia)

“one of the most impressive musician/ songwriter/ composers of the last 10 years” Nocturnal Hall (Germany)

    Absolutely amazing, im surprised at just how few people listen to her though! I heard Proximity of Death and immediately went out and bought three of her albums. All stunning, all essential

    Jordan's music (and voice!) is inescapably appealing: once you've heard her songs, you're a fan for life. New album due May 2011, by the way.

    The freeing of Baghdad and The Machines of B blow me away. LOVE Jordan's style. :) Her music is like a great big hug.

    Always blows me away.. not just with that great voice and intense sensitivity of the music, but the poetry is amazing, sharp, lyrical obviously, observational. Jordan's creativity as well as the overall artistry of performance is just breathtaking, seriously
