Jordan Reyne is one of the finest experimental musicians and most critically minded artists to emerge from New Zealand in the last two decades. Reyne’s work, embedded in Celtic folk music, has a powerful, shamanistic quality to it, her tracks often created by layering vocals and guitar with loops, electronics, and found sounds. She has been nominated three times at the New Zealand Music Awards and in 2016 contributed vocals to the theme song for the Resident Evil VII game, which was released in 2017.

Reyne started her creative journey when she was a young child, hitting bits of metal together and writing songs on the farm she grew up on near Westport. She began performing in public over 30 years ago and has released 10 albums.
