ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I wrote this biography on a train from Birmingham to Oxford, England. I'm en route to see Sondre Lerche for the second night in a row. There are a lot of artists I would pay good money to see, but precious few I would pay £38 to see the night after having seen him in my own city. Well… I say my own city. Where is that, anyway? I was born in Colorado, and moved to Texas when I was 4. I lived there for most of my formative years, growing up under the tutelege of a father who was both a professional cowboy and a preacher. I've been to 44 states, probably half of those in transit to rodeos.

I spent the better part of two years traveling in Latin America and Eastern Europe with a thrown-together band, learning to write songs while watching the world go by through the windows of trains and airplanes. I eventually moved back to Texas, and for 2 more years, I hit the Dallas scene with a band called Stories Of London. I learned how to record, how to play my instruments, how to fall in love, and how to write a love song. I suppose those are all necessary tools...

Eventually, the band broke up, as all bands do. I also split with my girlfriend of two years. I learned that a broken heart is not all my 19-year-old songwriter self of years ago thought it was cracked up to be. Two break-ups in a month taught me to feel broken. I learned devastation. I also learned writer's block and burn-out, and as a result I learned what it felt like to work a real job. . I learned how to walk into work and keep from showing that I had been listening to mewithoutYou and crying for no apparent reason on the drive there... again. I waited tables until I couldn't handle one more chicken parmigiana, and then I followed my dreams to England. I re-learned to write songs. I remembered how to be an artist. I remembered how much I loved music, and was in love with performing it.

Maybe that's why I'm paying this money to go see Sondre Lerche tonight. His music reminds me that people do care about writing the way I do. Some people do care about melody and chord structures and creativity the way I do. And some people don't. What I love is entertaining both crowds at the same time. I love being able to resonate with people who have learned or are learning the things I have endured in my years on this planet.

My music isn't world-changing. My voice won't ever win on any TV contests, and my perfectionist side wants me to add something about my musicianship never measuring up in my mind. But I am passionate about what I do. I love music. I love watching it being performed (enough, apparently, to overspend when I know the performance will be good.) And even more than that, I love playing it.

So whether you are a label, a booking agent, or an artist that I respect... I know nothing I write in here will convince you to like me unless you like what you hear. So I'll finish this and let you get to that. If you like it, or if you don't and you have criticisms... I'd love to hear from you and know what you thought. I'd do the same for you.

This CD is completely unique in its pure and sincere honesty
Levi Weaver has put together what I would consider to be a work of art in this CD. He is an artist in the truest sense of the form, and this disc shows it.

The amazing things you do
I just saw you in Lawrence, KS on the 12th. You are amazing. I also have to say that "Del Cielo" captivated me most but for different reasons. A good friend of mine just died in a similar fashion. I listen to that song just about every day. It's helpin me cope. Well Done!

Refreshing
Saw you in Toronto with Imogen Heap. So great. Thanks so much.

he is an amazing artist and sincerely puts his emotions into his music
I fell in love with Levi when I saw him at the Norva with Immi Heap. This cd is pure inspiration! The lyrics are heartfelt and will really touch your emotions. He has such an amazing voice. WAY TO GO LEVI

Best CD in a long time
I have not stopped listening to this cd since I bought it. I really should get a copy for work, and the car. What serendipity that I happened upon Levi Weaver opening for Imogen Heap. I strongly believe that I will be a life long fan. This CD is worth so much more to me than the price I paid for it. Thank you Levi and CD Baby!

I thought that this cd was very good. It shows that the artist puts his heart into his music, and he seems to be very talented. However, I did think that the cd was a little unpolished, but that itself was not enough for me to stop listening. I have recommended it to numerous friends, and I also really enjoyed Levi live.

Great CD. I first heard Levi when he opened for Imogen Heap in Houston. The live preformance was great and the reason I bought the CD. Its not only Great but addictive. I have many friends who have asked to borrow this. Terrific investment

Untapped refreshment in today's industry
If you are ever looking for a good drink of water, this is it. This artist is refreshing and offers something for everyone.....talent only described beyond words. We had the honor of seeing him in person touring with Imogen Heap in Asheville, NC, The Orange Peel. He makes you to "WOW......... I didn't know anyone could do that with a guitar!"

Katie

Just what I needed.
I've been waiting for this EP for quite some time and it delivered all I'd hoped it would. I'll be impatiently awaiting the next album.
