Simplicity. It’s something difficult to come across in songs today. With artists striving to make the next big hit, the focus on only an artist’s vocals tends to be more and more rare. Enter San Diego singer/songwriter, Cody Lovaas. His latest single “Lie” is a poppy dream, but Lovaas also created an acoustic version of the track to meet those simplistic needs of ours. Today we are happy to premiere the acoustic video for “Lie,” exclusively in the player above.
With only his guitar in tow, the track highlights Lovaas’ vocals while exploring the beauty of the outdoors. When discussing the creating of the video Lovaas shares, “This was such a fun video to make because we were camping, in nature, playing music, exploring, and I got to make this with some of my favorite people in the world.” The track, which was written with producer/songwriter Jake Scott (Keith Urban, Ben Rector), is a personal one for Lovaas as it touches on the idea of choosing honesty over manipulation in life.
At only 18, Cody Lovaas has had an exciting couple of years. He was discovered by Jason Mraz at 14, became the youngest nominee and winner for Best New Artist at the San Diego Music Awards at 16, and is also the youngest Ambassador for Surfaid International (alongside Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, and famed surfer, Kelly Slater). A superstar in the making, Lovaas has a promising career ahead and we’re happy to be along for the ride.
