Joel Levi is an Indie Folk/Americana artist who writes his music with painful honesty. Born in a post-GM town with a struggling economy, this Nashville singer-songwriter is no stranger to adversity. Levi spent most of his twenties in Indiana writing about his Midwestern experience. Those years of adolescence would prove to be the foundation for his blossoming craft.
It wasn’t until he and his wife decided to move to Nashville that his songwriting really started to come into focus. It was there that he found an affinity for the clear storytelling that Folk music can provide. His songs speak to a common thread that is woven into American culture. Levi parses themes of marriage, starting a family, and the struggle of making a living while on the road.
It was these sensibilities that attracted the attention of the Grammy winning producer of The Civil Wars, Charlie Peacock. Levi was then invited to record his first EP at his studio. In May of 2018, he released his full length “self-titled” album. Levi’s songs have a depth and wisdom that only years of life experience can bring. “Light in the Neon Sign” was released on August 23, 2019. His newest single “Wanna Be Somebody Else” releases on October 11, 2019.
