‘TRUST’ THE LEVIN’s NEW CD Harmony-driven acoustic duo The Levins celebrate the release of their second CD,Trust , bringing their uplifting music to a universal level, with a lighthearted depth and a celebration of our common humanity. It features 11 original songs and their timeless rendition of “Love Song” by Bruce Cockburn. With literary imagery from King Lear to Hermann Hesse and exquisitely blended harmonies, the songs radiate the search for truth, love and joy, the beauty of friendship, a hope for peace and our mystical connection to the earth. As Joe Pszonek of WMSC Radio says: “The Levins are folk-music gurus! Their new CD "Trust" features gorgeous melodies and inspirational lyrics guaranteed to lift the heart and soul! “ Produced by Ira & Julia Levin and recorded at Mark Dann Studios (Fast Folk,NYC) in Woodstock & NYC, the CD features performances by Sara Milonovich on violin (Richard Shindell/Pete Seeger), David Moss on cello (Satellite Collective), Ahara Bolsta on tabla & Indian flute (Fishtank Ensemble), Dan Hickey on drums (B-52’s/They Might Be Giants) Sean Dixon on percussion (Zammuto/Barnaby Bright) and Mark Dann (Richie Havens/Tom Paxton/Suzanne Vega) on stand up bass, octive mandolin, tenor, nylon,12 string and acoustic guitars. Trust follows their acclaimed release, My Friend Hafiz, which was inspired by the poetry of Sufi mystic Hafiz. It was in the top 20 for airplay on Folk Radio, and John Platt from WFUV included it in his top 10 Best CDs for 2013. The Levins met at an open mic in 2000, married soon-after and left their comfort zone in California in 2010 to pursue music full time together, bridging genres and communities to rising success in the Northeast. They performed in the 2014 Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist Showcase and were selected for the So. Florida Folk Festival Songwriter Competition this past January. Their music has garnered invitations to perform nationally and in Amsterdam and England.
