Vermilion Local Jordan John (stage name John Hollen) released a song titled “Lonely Night” on all streaming platforms on February 13.

The artist has been enamoured with music ever since childhood, but first picked up a guitar when he was 12. His natural ability was evident at a young age, and for many years the artist has been writing and performing both original songs and covers at local open mics, small gigs, Band in the Sand in 2017, and Taste of Vermilion in 2019. He has also participated in worship services at Parkview Alliance Church.

While he has been writing original songs for about as long as he has played guitar, “Lonely Night” is his first officially released single.

“The song is really just about learning how to heal,” John said, “I wanted it to be intimate, as if I was just playing it for the person that was listening. Production-wise, I wanted it to feel like I was performing live, imperfections and all.”

John produced and recorded “Lonely Night” independently in a humble home studio. The song is available on all streaming platforms including Youtube and Spotify under the name John Hollen.
