What a crazy 2017 it was for Gordi. She released her debut album Reservoir and toured the world for what felt like forever. Rather than sit in a windowless studio for months for album number two, she instead found herself in New York City doing a residency at Baby’s All Right. Called the Twilight Residency, each night would showcase Gordi playing a mix of old songs and new songs she has in progress. She’d also be joined on stage by friends such as The Tallest Man On Earth and Alex Lahey.

Ken Grand-Pierre linked up with Gordi in a busy Brooklyn cafe to catch up on life, the songs she’s been writing for the new album, studying to become a doctor, and a whole bunch more. It’s a pleasure to have Gordi back on the show (her first appearance can be heard here).

“Playing this residency reminded me of why I love playing music.”
