                                                               "When We Were" 

                                                                Independent Release





New England based artist Lexi Jordan, who will be making the move to Music City this fall, has been on a hot streak since releasing her debut single “Highway” in 2021 and following it up with “Blame,” an incredibly transparent, heart-tugging story of a toxic relationship.

She now returns with her new single “When We Were.”

The song, co-written by Jordan, Dariann Leigh, and Lyssa Coulter, drips with nostalgic reminiscing that instantly connects with the listener and pulls them back to remembering their own younger days.

The softer tempo of the song lends itself perfectly to Jordan’s vocals as she utilizes her voice in such a way that you can feel the smile on her face as she vividly sings about her high school days, best friends, and knowing every corner of their little town like the back of her hand. 

However, it’s the waver that Jordan injects into her voice as she comes out from behind her reminiscing and back into the here and now perspective that gives a deeper depth to the song, as the wishing she could go back/knowing that she can’t emotion quivers through as she sings of how she never imagined that what they had back then would be the very thing she’s missing today.

Confessing of leaving the life she once knew behind in the rearview as soon as she could, she uses the chorus to then reiterate that the days she least expected to be missing, have become the days that she can’t ever forget.

This is a song that certainly upholds Jordan’s notion of meaningful lyrics and stories as it expertly hits on all the different emotions that we all experience as life begins to change and pass us by. However, the song also acts a brilliant reminder that when life is moving too quickly for us, we need to take the time to calm the storm by slowing down and remembering who we are and where we come from.

That very poignant message combining with her already solid track record is more than enough to elevate the buzz for this soon to be Nashville resident as she continues to boldly forge ahead on her path and make her mark on the genre one lyric at a time.
