Fade Into You is set to make waves on the Central Coast with an all-female musical experience over two nights this month at Avoca Beach and Mooney Mooney.
The special showcase, organised to celebrate the diversity and talent of women in music, will feature a solo set from internationally acclaimed artist Gordi, whose mesmerising vocals and evocative lyrics have captured hearts around the world.
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, while anchored to a deep connection with traditional songwriting skills.
Gordi has collaborated and performed with international Grammy-nominated artists including Troye Sivan, Bon Iver, members of Sigur Ros, Sam Smith, Julien Baker and Missy Higgins.
Her work has won awards from triple j, FBi Radio, APRA, PPCA, and the Australia Council for the Arts.
Joining her will be a handpicked line-up of some of the Central Coast’s most talented singer/songwriters, including Tessa Thames, Elaskia, Ella Powell and Scarlett at the Avoca event.
At the Mooney Mooney event she will be joined by Ruby Archer, NEAV, Chloe Louise and Summer Healey.
All acts will be performing in an intimate, stripped-back format.
The show at Avoca on Thursday, November 16, will be a special all-ages, family event, with concession tickets for under 18, and free entry for ages 12 and under.
Fade Into You is not just a concert; it’s a statement of empowerment, showcasing the incredible strength and creativity of female artists.
It will be part of Tubular Festival – the newest music and arts festival on the Central Coast, to run in Gosford and surrounding areas from November 16-26 (see separate story).
Fade Into You will begin at 6pm at Avoca Surf Life Saving Club on Thursday, November 16, and Mooney Mooney Church on Friday, November 117.
