Singer and songwriter Lev combines soulful, guitar-driven rhythm sections with contemporary pop production and deeply introspective lyrics to create a more organic take on modern pop, reflective of his upbringing in singer-songwriter and folk music. Reminiscent of the instrumentation and lyrical candor of acts such as Kevin Garrett and JP Saxe, but with the artistic ambition of Frank Ocean and Jon Bellion, Lev attempts to meld his organic singer-songwriter side with leading-edge pop.
In 2016, at 19 years old, Lev wrote, produced, and released his first batch of original music entitled Illusions. After focusing mostly on improving his craft as a writer and performer at Berklee College of Music through 2019, during which he was featured on producer ABRAM’s pop/EDM track “Don’t Let Me Go,” Lev began the process of returning to the spotlight as an artist.
His new EP, entitled “A Year Underwater,” is due to release in 2020. The songwriter’s professional debut aims to merge the accessibility and youthfulness of a burgeoning pop artist with the musical integrity and lyrical content of one beyond his years. The project explores a variety of genres and sounds, including bouncy, bass-heavy rhythm sections on songs such as “Always The Rain,” pointed and rhythmic pop melodies on songs such as “A Year Underwater,” and stadium-ready explosiveness and an impressive display of range on songs such as “When I Hurt You.” Lev manages all the while to maintain his trademark lyrical style and a singer-songwriter’s heart
throughout the exploration of these new sounds, in a project that measures up to be remarkably well-rounded.
Now living in LA and working as a songwriter both for his own artist project and for others’, Lev is actively looking for collaboration and performance opportunities.
