    (January 27, 2022) A quiet person is often mistaken as someone who doesn’t have much to say.  But that couldn’t be further from the truth.  A quiet person may prefer to express his or her thoughts in writing and/or music. 

    That is the case for singer/songwriter Demi Jordanae.  At age 16, she started writing and recording her own songs at home as a way of expressing herself.  Although some may say she’s an introvert, Demi becomes “outspoken” and “extroverted” through her songs, which are all distinct from one another. 

    Her single “Smell Like You” is our newest First Listen.  The song is mellow and melodic, featuring Demi’s warm vocal style.  Here’s how she describes her song:

    “The opening verse expresses a nostalgic feeling towards your loved one. You can’t exactly get through your days without them; life feels empty and you’re longing for answers. The chorus reveals the desire to see, hear and hug them for the one last time

    I wanna see you for the one last time
    Then see your face for the last time
    Then hear your voice for the last time
    Then hug you ‘til I smell like you

    “The second verse reveals a slight reality shock of the thought of them never coming back. This song can resonate with many people, whether it’s a break-up or the passing of a loved one.”
