New York contemporary folk duo The Levins make their debut at Isis Music Hall in Asheville, NC on January 26th!
The Levins duo will bring their joyous music to Isis Music hall, showcasing songs from their recent release, Caravan of Dawn.
The Levins offer lyrically-rich acoustic music that is warm and uplifting without skating over life’s complexities. From harmony in voice to harmony for humanity, husband and wife duo The Levins, uplift and unite with feel-good folk-pop, infectious musicality, sharp songwriting skills, and a unique approach to vocal harmonies that is both soulful and unexpected.
The Levins have garnered prime accolades and acclaim for boldly uncompromising and heartfelt music. Select highlights include ranking on Folk and Roots DJ charts, nabbing Top 10 positions and landing on multiple DJ yearly Top 10 song and album lists. Their songs bridge genres and communities, offering them opportunities to perform at The Parliament of World Religions and co-produce an original full-scale musical theater/Euro-Circus production in San Francisco, based on their album, “My Friend Hafiz, which is inspired by Daniel Ladinsky’s poetic renditions.
They are currently touring with their new CD, Caravan Of Dawn, which orbits around a transformative message of healing, exploring the “sorrow inside joy and joy inside sorrow.”
“With Caravan of Dawn, The Levins emulate a timeless sound that’s chock full of seamless harmonies, simple, supple melodies and the kind of unassuming but reassuring melodies that might have sprung from the seminal sounds of the Laurel Canyon scene during its heyday in the late ‘60s.” – Lee Zimmerman, Indie Spotlight, Goldmine Magazine –
“The Levins have scored another “win” with the release of “Caravan of Dawn”. Their trademark harmonies have never sounded better and the collection of uplifting songs serve up the perfect tonic for whatever ails we might be facing. Uplifting, inspiring and loving – their latest CD is a stunning production that gives us a chance to pause and celebrate the joys of life. A most welcome recording!” – Ron Olesko, WFDU, Hurdy Gurdy Folk Club
“The Levins are originals! Interlocking vocals – counter singing – these two sound like multiple vocals and I can think of no one who writes tunes in this fashion. It’s almost as if they have created a new “classical” music.” – John Apice, No Depression
