Andor69 For me it's her best Album so far. The Songs seem so simple, but catch your mind and become more and more impressive every time you listen to them. I loved seeing her live in Leipzig at WGT 2015. Stunning! Favorite track: The Shadow Line.

Russell Whyman The blurb for this album states 'The "Maiden, Mother Crone" trilogy combines pagan imagery with modern narratives on women.'

While no doubt accurate it doesn't give much of an idea what the music actually sounds like. Jordan's work is dark, powerful and captivating in it's simplicity. For me she is not you average singer/songwriter or band. This is something unique.

Rhokeheart A singer songwriter that incorporates elements of rock and industrial into her music. Really unique and honest music! Favorite track: Dishonour Among Thieves.

Michael Reilly This is (slightly) my favourite of the three MMC trilogy EP's – a great collection of powerful 'celtic protest songs' from an artist that walks across many musical boundaries, delivering with ease on everything stated for each of her unique and at times challenging projects. Brilliant. Favorite track: The Shadow Line.

    5 (+1) track EP from a trilogy of EPs called "Maiden, Mother, Crone". All music and lyrics written, performed, and mixed by Jordan Reyne.

    The "Maiden, Mother Crone" trilogy combines pagan imagery with modern narratives on women. "The Hag", or Crone was once seen as wise, but the elderly today are often simply marginalised or overlooked entirely. The "Crone"'s invisibility however, has a plus side. She can be as political as she likes, and many of her songs are just that. The Crone is more outside the gaze of what is expected of women, compared to the other two figures, so is allowed to speak her mind. It is a voice within her voicelessness , and an identity that she herself can construct.

Dear John 06:10
Dear John, Im writing to extend an invitation. An opportunity to join us for a feast of food and celebration Far beyone imagination, of what you made of them or me, you made us what we are. Cos you're all heart John. you're all heart John. Please take off your shoes and I will welcome you into my home Oh it might seem kind of lonely till the other guests make themselves known and thankyou for your commendation of my choices, but there is only one that would keep you in the style to which you've become acccustomed. But you're all heart John. you're all heart John. Delicacy of flavour, oh it fill the senses, feel it come in rarity anf favours, all laid out since you were bred and born and we only get to do this once, cos it's far beyond our means. Dont let me bore you with the details - I know you want to taste a part of each Cos, you're all heart John. you're all heart John. A moments silence, please. To thank our guests and bless this food that's only yours to eat. Oh and their names are written underneath each plate each dish, each tasteless grave but yes, you like the flavour and you wont change. you're all heart John. you're all heart John. you're all heart John. There but for the grace of god goes you or I you taste every story, but do you recognise? you're so free with the glaze, and it disguises the taste of what you know this if for. What its for. We, we're all here. We feel each bite, we feel each tear as you sew the seeds your pound of flesh, your fiscal year. Know what you are we know what you are we know what you are know what you are dear dear john. dear john.

The sky threw down it's blood and rain on the day that she was born. They gave her number, rank and name to see if she could hold her own. but I won't see red She wouldn't wear her shoes of green, my little girl, and she wouldnt sing. And when at last, they asked her why she pointed at the world outside. but I wont see red. The men in power, they set up eyes, to show us where the shadow lines would trip and blow, and show us how to keep us safely from ourselves. and they watched us fall down one by one as the hunger came and seasons turned till in the end, they called her name and the fear bit deep, and the sirens came. but I wont see red They say some towns are painted gold, and pictures line the city walls. They show us things we cannot be and lead us there in hope and greed. but I wont see red. My little girl, I found her there. They'd told her she could outrun death they gave her gold and pretty things till she was bought and sold and she told me with, her final breath "You can never die, if you've never lived". but I wont see red. When she was gone, they took her name, and all she had lost, to sell again and the children followed one by one with empty eyes drawn to the tune of endless gold, undying fame and the cycle turns on blood and rain And I see red.

Servitude 04:56
Turn those voices down he whispered, he whispered. Let me be your quiet in this dissonance, this dissonance. I will heal your hurt he whispered, he whispered follow my hand through the dark I'll be your strength, my fading flower. Oh you're not alive, but I am your saviour Wasted spirits die, and I want you to savour, savour the rush of power he whispered, he whispered. When I hold you, you're beautiful he whispered Hold the knife tight, in your hand come prove your loyalty to me Oh you're not alive but I am your saviour, saviour Cos I am the knowing, the reaping, the sowing and I I I I I I I I Burn them to the ground turn those voices down.

Dishonour Among Thieves Cold where your footsteps fall I am your echo and your shadow Here: left, right. Red cross, dead loss, second sight. Oh, I am waiting. Oh, I am listening. For slips of the tongue loose lips, sunk ships, power trips and oversights, oversights oversights. You're pale as a fish. As a shark your face buys silence, distance calculate what violence, violence will buy you. Bam. Another ace in your hand Bam. Another race to rail against Bam. Fear is a trading game. But which one of us doesn't need their name? Cos we are the men who won't be blamed we are the ranks whose game is is knives in the back, shots in the dark slight of the hand, cheap tricks, suck dick don't run, don't walk, don't stand single file green light, red square, no blood on your hands. Blood on your hands. You look so horrified. Your slights of tongue, done legal tender, surrender your will to power, cower, kill, remember Your god forbids you'll be forgotten, short stick, free kicks, dead and rotten. Cos we are the men who won't be blamed we are the ranks whose game is is knives in the back, shots in the dark slight of the hand, cheap tricks, suck dick don't run, dont walk, don't stand single file green light, red square, no blood on your hands. Blood on your hands. You look so horrified.

The Music

The "Maiden, Mother Crone" trilogy combines pagan imagery with modern narratives on women. "The Hag", or Crone was once seen as wise, but the elderly today are often simply marginalised or overlooked entirely. The "Crone"'s invisibility however, has a plus side. She can be as political as she likes, and many of her songs are just that. The Crone is more outside the gaze of what is expected of women, compared to the other two figures, so is allowed to speak her mind. It is a voice within her voicelessness , and an identity that she herself can construct.
