“Old Man Luedecke isn’t afraid to put his neck on the line. His latest album, Tender Is The Night, goes beyond his beloved solo, banjo-driven folk tunes. Driving a Nashville band from beginning to end with his recognizable voice, this is an artist honing his cunning lyrical flair – tenderly pushing the boundaries of his storytelling with his unique mix of folk, bluegrass and pop hooks. Old Man Luedecke has a penchant for language. Based in Chester, Nova Scotia, the award-winning roots singer-songwriter’s latest album, Tender Is The Night, gives nod to F.R. Scott Fitzgerald’s famous novel, a title lifted from John Keats poem, ‘Ode To A Nightingale.’ With skillful precision and a storyteller’s heart, Luedecke’s narrative-driven folk songs are playful, coy, and soul warming. Rich in metaphor, heart and instrumentation, Tender Is The Night muses on love, art and purpose.”
“See the photo’s and you would be forgiven for thinking that Australian Jordie Lane is just another guitar wielding, hat wearing, beard sporting, love song singing troubadour. Well think again. A closer listen reveals the love songs are epic tales based on historical figures, the protest songs feature lady-boys and fornicating dogs, the guitar work takes you from early Dylan to southern blues, and that felt hat is camouflaging a messy mop of hair, from a long night spent rescuing a passed out Irish crowd member. You never know what to expect at a Jordie Lane show, and you get the feeling neither does he. Lane has that rare quality of being able to lure and capture his listeners with his playful charm, rhythmic finger picking, and most of all, THAT VOICE.”
