Gordi is the childhood nickname of Sophie Payten, who has been writing songs for the majority of her life. Her debut EP slowly came together for its release in the US last summer, introducing everyone to her delicate folk pop sound, which in the case of “Can We Work It Out,” was not easy to get out of your head. She spent a lot of time with that EP, touring the world all the while managing to fit in time for her studies. Fast forward to now and she has begun practicing medicine, apparently taking involuntary naps in delivery rooms due to the grueling and rest averse schedule she keeps. In spite of all this, Gordi plans to continue pursuing both for the foreseeable future.
