Bio

Led by singer-songwriter Jordan Rochfort and renowned producer and guitarist Samuel Joseph, Family Jordan have held the reputation as a compelling, ever-evolving entity. Through each incarnation of sound and line up, Family Jordan have taken visceral pleasure from writing and recording the music they love, influenced by traditional and contemporary folk, country and rock.

They have played regularly at Gizzfest and shared stages with The Murlocs, Babe Rainbow, Gabriella Cohen, Fraser A Gorman, Wagons, The Belligerents, Moses Gunn Collective, Sahara Beck and Angharad Drake.

From their cosmic country beginnings in Super Nobody Group From Nowhere (2015) and Holy Smokes (2015), and the profound, intimate balladry of Homo Exotica (2019), 'Big Grass' solidifies the band as one of the forerunners in the growing resurgence in timeless folk music in Australia and provides a rousing introduction to their upcoming fourth LP.

Made possible by Samuel Joseph's production, producer/engineer for King Gizzard, Babe Rainbow and Stonefield, and mastered by Melbourne's Mikey Young, 'Big Grass' and 'Sally' are Family Jordan's most ambitious and distinctive releases to date.

This is the country, rock, folk jam I didn't realise I needed until now, felt like a step back in time. Offering a somewhat happier alternate/ parallel version of "Beast Of Burden" from the first listen and then just grows sweeter with every round.
