About

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 Whaingaroa, 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 Maori Music Awards. Following suit, Jordyn was a finalist for the 2023 Pacific Music Award’s Best Pacific Female Artist as well as her first Maori language release ‘Raumati’ landing as a top 3 finalist for the 2023 APRA Maioha Award. Jordyn is also a finalist for the 2023 Maori Music Awards Best Female Artist and Best Single.

2023 has been a huge year for Jordyn’s career, being booked at her very first festival, the 2023 Pasifix Fest in Melbourne, showcasing at the Waiata Reo Maori Showcase at the Tuning Fork, featuring in the TVNZ Purapura Whetu Stars of Matariki show, performing at her first Pacific Music Awards as well as BigSound 2023. Audiences have praised Jordyn’s stage presence and dynamic, nestling into the soulful vibes somewhere between Snoh Aalegra and Emily King, which she has worked really hard towards alongside her band. In between the busyness, Jordyn has still been writing and is inspired to work on a body of work for a 2024 release.

Jordyn’s ‘why’ is in and through her music - she tells the stories of language reclamation, identity and cultural heritage. As an emerging artist, Jordyn has made noticeable moves in the music scene and shows no signs of slowing down.
