Recently, I turned the radio to a Country station and someone asked “Are you listening to Country?” Then proceeded to say how annoyed she got because of all these people who listen to Country Music and have never even been on a horse. I’m not sure what riding a horse has to do with liking an entire genre of music, but it just goes to show that you don’t have to meet a specific mold to enjoy what Country Music has to offer.
Hawaiian native, JoLivi would probably agree! There probably isn’t a whole lot of Country influence on the islands, but that hasn’t stopped her from resonating with the music and turning it into a career. JoLivi wants to make music for everyone and for every occasion. Her soulful new single “Vinyl” (written and produced by Mark McKee), is playful and has all the makings of a hit song. Her vocals are strong, the beat is catchy and the song is carefree and relatable.
JoLivi told Variety Beat about the inspiration behind the song:
‘“Vinyl” is about experiencing moments that are classic and unfiltered. There is something romantic about a jukebox and watching a record physically play on the turntable. Also, just having fun.. leaving all your worries behind and getting lost in time.”
“Play me like a Vinyl
Get it on like I’m out of tune
Then flip me over if you want to play side two
Oh spin me around, yeah you love the sound
Of the jukebox stereo coming in loud
I’m vinyl, let your needle touch my groove.”
