Album Notes
If life experience is the source from which great songs arise, Levinson's life is a deep well. He's lived on the edge of a knife for too many years forging through a succession of adrenalin pumping careers including service as a medic, firefighter, cop, detective and forensic specialist. And all the while writing songs and performing in front of crowds ranging from 10,000 to 10.
From being a lyricist and guitar player in the 1970's punk band "Tiffany Queen" touring the midwest; to the lead singer/screamer in the 1980’s St. Louis Mo. based lacivious and leather clad "Surgery", the only band to ever open for the Rocky Horror Picture Midnight Shows; to the post-millenial, nitrous fueled, street band "Billy Coma." Levinson has crossed a number of musical genres.
As he wrote in the reflective alternative country song, "Still Small Voice", "Too much time, living in bars, whiskey and smoke and playing guitar, the story's written on my arms in ink and scars."
And for those friends who lost their lives in the streets or on the field of battle, who lived and died under the rule of honor and duty, he penned the swampy southern rock number "Cut One We All Bleed, "When you take an oath and live by a creed, you cut one of us, we all bleed."
Over the years, he has mellowed a bit. "I'm still mining life for those nuggets of lust, love, faith and grit that I see every day on the street to craft songs. I've just turned the dial down from 11 to 10."
Howard is currently recording demos in St. Louis and Nashville, putting together a catalog of songs.
As a writer and novelist, Howard has published a number of articles in various technical and professional journals over the years. He recently published a science fiction novel, "The Mercury Vapor Lamp Experience", available at and for Kindle download.
