Jordan Lovelis, a talented singer-songwriter and phenomenal musician based in Los Angeles, is out with a new song that will shake you to your core in the best way possible. This one is going to give you the feels! The song titled “Hey Diane” has incredibly romantic lyrics and the music video features footage from Jordan’s parents wedding tape which adds to the “I’ll always be there” aesthetic of the song. The song is actually about a break up and the vow that Jordan will always be there for his ex-girlfriend if she needs him or ever feels lonely. The music feels good with big drum sounds and well produced vocals and guitars. The song slowly builds into something more anthemtic after the first verse. You can watch the video on YouTube and be sure to check out the interview we did with Jordan as well!
RTP: Great music Jordan! Is the song “Hey Diane” based on a true story?
JL: Sort of. I wrote it after a break up. We’re still great friends, just wasn’t going to work romantically….but I like the idea of her always knowing I’m here for her…Her name wasn’t Diane though. Haha. Originally the lyric was darling and my friend Matt Costa thought I was saying Diane but I ended up liking that way more so I ran with it.
RTP: Can you give a backstory to the inspiration?
JL: I was listening to a lot of Phil Spector records last year. This melody came to me and I instantly envisioned it to sound similar to him…I love that wall of sound thing and I wanted the chorus really big. So me and my producer Kelly Winrich made the decision to make the verses fairly simple…and no acoustic guitar, which was tough for me cause I’ve been glued to my acoustic for 15 years. But with the song being called Hey Diane, that 60’s retro thing works…I wanted it to sound classic. Hopefully it sort of does.
RTP: It definitely has that classic vibe, which feels so good! How often do you write a song?
JL: I’m kind of always writing down lyric ideas or singing melodies in my phone…Most of them don’t turn into something but probably one a week that turns into some sort of demo.
RTP: What’s your favorite thing about being an artist?
JL: It’s hard to consider myself an artist…I guess I’m making art. My favorite thing about the process is seeing something go from an idea into a song. It’s very satisfying.
RTP: What do you want the world to take away from your music?
JL: I’d hope that they can feel something from it…sadness, joy, anything. Feeling something is important.
