Gordi - Artist


Gordi is the musical moniker of Australian singer-songwriter-producer, Sophie Payten, from the tiny agricultural town of Canowindra.

Since her globally acclaimed debut album Reservoir in 2017 and her anticipated 2020 follow-up, Our Two Skins, the ARIA nominated artist has quickly become one of the most cherished Indie/folk songwriters, recognised for her unique and progressive approach to her craft.

Gordi has collaborated and performed with an array of international artists including Bon Iver, Sam Smith, Troye Sivan, Julien Baker and Missy Higgins.

Sophie is also a medical doctor, and throughout the pandemic was part of the Surge Response Workforce in Victoria.
