Jordan Reyne is an experimental musician from New Zealand, who has been variously described as "industrial-tinged folkâ and "antipodean Steampunkâ yet defies any cut and dried description. She combines the two usually disparate genres of folk and industrial, bringing in celtic vocal melody, historically based narrative and the sounds of steam, iron and industrial "found sound". Several of her releases are set in the time of the Industrial Revolution. She has been nominated three times for a New Zealand Music Award and released five CDs with the assistance of Creative New Zealand, the New Zealand Arts Council. The newest of these "How the Dead Live" was an Arts Council and Department of Conservation commission based on one of New Zealand's first pioneer women who arrived in New Zealand from Gravesend London in 1874. 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 recorded under this title, which gained her attention and a following internationally in the darkwave and steampunk scenes. Jordan is also involved in the electronic music scene and has performed as a guest artist for several well known New Zealand hip-hop and electronic acts including Strawpeople, Breaks Co-op, and Baitercell and Schumacher. A collaborative track between Jordan and Johnny Chrome appears on the Cafe Del Mar 25th Anniversary album.
