in an expanding world of available music, Levi Chen's unique musical voice is instantly recognizable. Performing solo, or with his ensembled Liquid Gardens, Levi's sound is a gift for anyone who appreciates the musical experience of timeless compositions performed by a visionary artist.
Levi performs on one of the newest and one of the oldest stringed instruments known to man: A Fender Stratocaster electric guitar, and the Gu Zheng (Chinese Harp or Zither,) an ancient instrument played in China for 3,000 years. Levi's ability to express himself on these two instruments is all the more remarkable in that he performs on them simultaneously, a technique he calls 'solo duets.'
Levi has been heard on over 350 radio stations, in over 30 countries. His latest recording "Alhambra," was the number #1 radio recording for October 2001, as reported on the New Age Voice "Airwaves" airplay charts/ His music has been featured on national and international TV shows, such as "Friends" and "Dangerous Minds."
"Lush soundscapes balanced by enthralling melodies....Personally I believe that Leo Fender smiled when he heard the true voice of his creation in Levi Chen's most capable hands."
BEAR, HOST/PRODUCER THE NEW AGE SAMPLER, ON WWSP 90FM
"The symmetry of East and West he achieves lets the two instruments meld their sound together...Levi Chen manages to express himself with a distinctive voice that sets him a notch above a very crouded field."
NEW AGE VOICE MAGAZINE
"Levi Chen has concocted an East/West and further west fusion...beautifully fragile melodies draped in ethereal atmospheres."
JOHN DILIBERTO, BILLBOARD MAGAZINE
"Candles, a bottle of wine and Levi Chen's, "Meditation of My Soul" makes for the most incredible, sensual experiences known to man or woman"
