Jordan Reyne

Jordan Reyne is an acclaimed, yet still relatively low-profile musician with a long history in New Zealand pop and rock, specifically in a dark (and somewhat gothic) direction. Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, Reyne gigged as a solo musician (after debuting with first group Shikasta in Paraparaumu) in Kapiti and Palmerston North, before settling in Wellington. There she formed Bloodflower – a group that would eventually secure support for the touring White Zombie.

Working as a contributing vocalist for bands such as Breaks Co-Op and the Strawpeople, in the late 1990s, Reyne started releasing her own solo albums, and was recognised by the likes of the APRA song-writing foundation, and gothic music specialists both nationally and in europe, especially with the rising profile of her group Dr Kevorkian and the Suicide Machine.
