The folk/rock duo The Levins will bring their uplifting songs and harmonies to Rockwood Music Hall on Sunday, March 9th.
Ira and Julia Levin combine harmony-driven acoustic folk rock with wistful overtones of the 1930s with the intention of putting a smile on your face … sounds like The Mamas and The Papas having coffee with Cole Porter.
In 2000, Ira and Julia met at the Freight and Salvage open mike in Berkeley, CA, married in 2002 and in late 2010, they left their bands, “work” and comfort zones on the west coast and moved to NY to pursue music full time...together. They’ve been performing in the Hudson Valley, Catskills, northern NJ and NYC, winning the 2011 Connecticut Folk Festival songwriting competition, gaining momentum at songwriter showcases at NERFA, Falcon Ridge, Huntington Folk Festival and area venues.
Their new CD, My Friend Hafiz, inspired by the poetry of Sufi mystic poet Hafiz, was in the top 20 on folk radio, and John Platt from WFUV radio included it in his Best of List for 2013.
“Dropping Keys' from My Friend Hafiz by The Levins is one of my top10 favorite songs of 2013.”
- John Platt, WFUV Radio -
"Their voices fit together, like water and ice, like heat and steam. Something joyful explodes inside the listener's chest like a Roman candle. Their effect may, in fact, begin before they start to play. Even at first glance, Ira and Julia seem to radiate a positive energy. That "look" always keeps its promise." ~ Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live NYC and Beyond
