Jordyn With A Why

Auckland, New Zealand



Growing up in the suburban-scapes of South Auckland, Jordyn has quickly impacted the Aotearoa music scene with her ethereal R&B sounds. Descending from Whāingaroa, Mulifanua Lalovi, Falelatai and Vaimoso, the stories are woven throughout her music, with her second release, ‘Brown Melodies’ being nominated for ‘Best Single’ at the 2022 Māori Music Awards. Following suit, Jordyn is a finalist for the 2023 Pacific Music Award’s Best Pacific Female Artist as well as her first Māori language release ‘Raumati’ landing as a top 5 finalist for the 2023 APRA Maioha Award. Jordyn’s ‘why’ is in and through her music - she tells the stories of language reclamation, identity and cultural heritage.
