With a unique blend of raw talent and stage presence, singer/songwriter Rich Levering is emerging as one of the most impressive new arrivals on the modern music scene.
A native of Philadelphia and a graduate of Berklee School of Music/Emerson College, Rich recognized his love for music at the age of 5, when he was taught the Suzuki Method, learning how to play the guitar from ear while also discovering his affinity for singing. He wrote his first song at fourteen, but it wasn't until Berklee that he really found his love for writing meaningful and memorable music.
After living and performing from coast to coast and overseas, Rich finally landed in Brooklyn, New York. He had the fortunate opportunity to work alongside talented producers of indie to multi-platinum success. These producers, who share Rich’s enthusiasm for writing relevant, universal music, gave Rich the experience and direction needed to help him embark on his already promising career.
Rich Levering, with his smooth pop-rock vocals infused with soulful beats and instantly catchy hooks, is sure to make first time listeners into longtime fans. The energy and passion of this 28 year old is showcased not only in his music, but in his spirited live shows as well.
Rich performed across North America on last summer’s Warped Tour’07 in the MySpace.com and Skull Candy tents, as well as appearing on a national cable show. This was a great opportunity to share his music with his already bi-costal, loyal fan-base, but also a newer growing audience as well.
Rich has a simple but generous intention – to engage and inspire. "I feel like the music that I write has the power to connect positively with anyone that takes a listen.”
Rich, a storyteller at heart and musician at soul, is constantly at work writing new material while living in New York City. He'll be performing his own original style of heartfelt love songs and feel good, bar-friendly, soul-infused pop to audiences throughout the Northeast this winter and spring to promote his new self-entitled EP.
