Biography

New York, United States (2004 – present)

Wynter Gordon (born Diana Gordon; August 25, 1985) is an American and . Wynter was born in New York and was brought up in a poverty stricken neighborhood in Queens. As the middle child of seven living in a two bedroom house with an abusive and largely absent father, her childhood was difficult. Wynter discovered her talent for singing and dance at an early age. As a teenager, she was accepted to the famous LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts. There, she was nurtured in a welcoming and nonjudgmental environment. Wynter has been writing music since an early age. She wrote first song, “Daddys Song” at the age of 12. The track remains personal to Wynter and brought executives at Atlantic Records to tears during her showcase.

After high school, Wynter threw herself fully into realizing her music dreams, while also dealing with surviving on her own for the first time. She juggled several jobs while working in the studio at nights and as much as she could. During this time, Wynter met her manager, Keith White who introduced her to Don Pooh at Atlantic Records. Wynter worked closely with producer D’Mile since 2004 where they both came with her first track to fame, “Gonna Breakthrough” written by Wynter Gordon and produced by D’Mile was used as the title track to Mary J. Blige’s 2005 album The Breakthrough. Soon after, Wynter was given an opportunity and signed to Atlantic Records, through Don Pooh Music Group, where she has been working on her debut album since 2004.
