Orange County’s Dylan Jordan had been making YouTube videos for years before he realized music is where his true passion lies. Known for his loveable personality and charming social media presence, Jordan has finally taken it upon himself to seriously pursue music, and we’re living for it. As his first release of the new decade, Jordan is treating us to “aliso,” a heartfelt ode to his hometown.
On “aliso,” Dylan Jordan shared,
“My first single is about drifting too far from home. I grew up in Aliso Viejo, California (so that’s home for me).”
As “aliso” opens with calming ukuleles, we’re instantly transported to the sunny city Jordan calls home. Jordan fully recognizes his indisputable growth as a thriving artist, but he also reflects on his responsibilities as a son and an older brother at the same time. Layered with Jordan’s comforting vocals above minimal electronics, “aliso” serves as a reminder for us to check in with our families and recognize that home is where the heart is.
“You all know how much music means to me. No matter what’s going on in life, I’m most content when making music and working on my performance.”
