Gordon Voidwell

Artist bio

Gordon Voidwell is the alter-ego of a Bronx born ex-chorister turned rap geek, Will Johnson.

A multi-instrumentalist, a trained vocalist and a published fashion writer, his music is subversive pop & funk. He uses analog synthesizers and chunky drum machines as the
backdrop for silky, reverb-drenched vocals - reminiscent of Cameo, New Edition and other championed 80s R&B crooners.

Blending old sounds with updated lexicon, Voidwell creates a sonic collage - one that is oh so familiar but at once strange and unusual. This is the point; to embrace the immense void that exists between seemingly opposite ideas of past and future, hip and dorky, pop and indie. That void is the well from which Gordon drinks and he invites you to do the same.
