Jordan Reyne



Over her 20+ years as a musician Jordan has been nominated for a New Zealand music award twice, once for a bNet award and received a commendation from SOUNZ Contemporary at the 2001 APRA Silver Scroll awards. Her album ‘The Ironman’ was voted “best New Zealand Release” on the GUNZ (Gothic Underground New Zealand) site in the annual readers poll of 2000. Two of the tracks from the same CD were voted first and third best New Zealand song of the year respectively.

In 2004 Jordan was an Artist-in-Residence as part of the Creative New Zealand/Depart of Conservation 'Wild Creations' programme. She used her residency in Karamea to undertake a musical research and writing project exploring the many kinds of relationships people have had and still have with the land of New Zealand's West Coast.

Along with her own releases, Jordan has performed and written with other musicians and bands as well as featuring on projects such as Capcom's Resident Evil 7: Biohazard soundtrack, written and arranged by Michael A. Levine. Her vocals also feature on releases from Cafe Del Mar, Breaks Co-op, The Strawpeople, and The Eden House where she contributed vocals to the album "Half Life" and was part of the band's live line up until 2014. Her own album "The Annihilation Sequence" (2013) also features the voice of Tony Pettit and the mixing/mastering of Stephen Carey from the band.

Between 1999 and 2005 Jordan wrote under the moniker "Dr Kevorkian & the Suicide Machine", and also performed live under this name. Two of her CDs were also released under this title, which gained her attention and a following internationally in the darkwave and steampunk scenes, and prompted a move to Germany in 2006. Reyne also performed as a vocalist on one of the scenes in Peter Jackson's second Lord of the Rings film, in a scene that depicted Theodred's funeral. This scene, however, was not included in the final edit of the film.

Jordan is a 3 time Tui Award (New Zealand Grammy) nominee, and 3 time nominee for the Torun music awards in Poland. Her 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), Soundedit (Poland), Whitby Gothic Weekend and many more.
