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. They’ve been performing in the Hudson Valley, Catskills, northern NJ and NYC, winning the 2011 Connecticut Folk Festival songwriting competition.
Their recent CD, My Friend Hafiz, inspired by the poetry of Sufi mystic poet Hafiz, was in the top 20 on folk radio and WFUV’s John Platt included the CD in his Best for 2013.
Albums recorded with their west coast world folk ensemble have garnered invitations to perform in both Amsterdam and England and they have received songwriting awards for their folk, pop, Jewish and children's music. They are currently working on new material for a 2014 release. www.thelevinsmusic.com
‘Dropping Keys' from My Friend Hafiz by The Levins is one of my top 10 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
