Elisa Jordana Music Career
Elisa Jordana began playing piano at the age of four and took piano lessons for over ten years. She moved to New York City and took occasional modeling job and tried to navigate the music industry. Most of the producers told her she didn’t have the right “look” to be a pop star. They said she was ‘too old, too fat, and weird nose’.
‘After years of trying to make it as a solo artist in the male-dominated music industry, I knew the drill: If they didn’t want to bang you, they weren’t interested in talking to you. Image was a major factor in building a successful singing career, and I felt tremendous pressure to dress and act very sexy. Growing up I’d always been extremely awkward and shy. Sometimes I’d go a week in school without saying a
word. I had a super skinny body, a big nose, and a huge frizzy mop of hair with fluffy bangs. To succeed in the music industry I’d either have to cut my head off and start with a completely new face and body, or pump up the sex appeal. So I put on a tight dress, fake eyelashes, a bright orange spray-tan, and neon lipstick.’
While at a night club she bumped into a guy who introduced her to ‘Cobra Starship’. She joined the band and played the “keytar”, a combination of a keyboard and a guitar.
They embarked on a national tour and while performing at a venue in NYC a music executive said that she looked like a slut. She was later replaced by a lady they had picked up while touring the midwest. She changed her stage name from Elisa Schwartz to Elisa Jordana hoping the new name would bring her luck.
