THE LEVINS are a harmony-driven acoustic duo known for their sun-splashed, peace infused songwriting that connects on a universal level and celebrates our common humanity. These award winners (Indie Acoustic, Empower Music, CTFolk, S.Florida Festival, MASC) were 2017 SERFA and 2016 NERFA Formal Showcase Artists and 2014 Falcon Ridge Emerging Artists. In addition to performing/presenting at the Parliament of World Religions in Toronto, The Levins rounded out 2018 in San Francisco with the multiple show production of My "Friend Hafiz", a theatrical circus directed by Broadway director Mindy Cooper, featuring the live music of their 2013 recording. Unique harmonies and tightly blended unison vocals, along with their guitar and piano interplay, reflect the couples’ own compatible musical/personal relationship which began after meeting at an open mic at The Freight and Salvage in Berkeley CA. Their My Friend Hafiz CD debuted in the top 20 on Folk DJ & their latest, TRUST, in the top 10. (Top 10 song/2015, J.Platt, WFUV) and "underscores the positive messages of love, peace, and self-awareness. Each tune serves as another stepping stone toward a better day & a richer life." Tom Staudter.
Their newest recording, Caravan of Dawn was released on April 26, 2019.
“The Levins speak to our better selves with their crystalline harmonies and uplifting lyrics.” – John Platt, WFUV
“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
