SHORT  BIO

A singer-songwriter-producer hailing from the 3-0-5, Miami, Florida, Lindsay "Liorah LEV" Levy graduated magna cum laude from Berklee College of Music in Boston in May 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in Professional Music with concentrations in Music Business, Performance, and Music Production.

 

Graduating and launching her music career in the midst of a global pandemic presented serious challenges. Undeterred, however, Liorah sought innovative ways to produce, collaborate, and record her first EP remotely.  "I AM LEV" drops November 19, 2021 and features her debut EDM single, "Taking Over," her second release,  "Let Go," as well as "Nerve," a roots reggae "chune" that gives a hat-tip to her Jamaican roots. Her soulful jazz-inspired cover of "September," an Earth Wind and Fire classic, melds her alto sax skills and love for the 70s and jazz genres. She credits time spent with her late adoptive father, listening to his extensive contemporary jazz collection and informed commentary, for her unwavering interest in and mastery of the saxophone, as well as her special love for both genres.

Liorah's stage name fuses her identity with her vision. "Liorah LEV" translates to "I have Light — Lifting Every Voice". Her musical style is an eclectic mix of Electronic, Pop, R&B, and Reggae, unexpectedly infused with an improvisational jazz flair. Her voice is distinctive with a mellifluous quality and sensitivity that resonates in your soul.

 

Liorah has several gigs under her belt, most memorably at Upper Club and La Fabrica de Hielo in Valencia, Spain. Her participation in an exciting, impromptu, Christmas performance outside the world-famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele IIin in Milan, Italy, in 2017 remains one of her fondest memories. It was where she was first asked for her autograph.

Introducing Liorah LEV
By Howard Campbell, Reggae North — International News
November 27, 2021

"There’s a lot of diversity on ‘I Am LEV’, the debut EP from American singer/musician Liorah LEV. The six-song mini-set, which hears strains of EDM, pop and reggae, was released On November 19.

Born in Miami to Jamaican parents, LEV is a graduate of the esteemed Berklee College of Music in Boston. For the past year, she crafted a self-produced project that has so far yielded three singles — ‘Taking Over’, ‘Let’s Go’ and ‘Nerve’. The latter is a reggae number, a nod to her Jamaican heritage. “Nerve is obviously a roots-reggae beat, but the bridge has elements of jazz improvisation. ‘On Puppet’ (another song from ‘I Am LEV’), you’ll find influences of reggae and dancehall in the beats,” LEV explained.

‘I Am LEV’ contains one cover, an acoustic take on ‘September’, the Earth Wind And Fire dance classic. LEV said she wanted to bring something fresh to a song that was a global hit 43 years ago...."   READ ON

Sounds of Liorah LEV
By Howard Campbell, Senior Writer — The Jamaica Observer
November 22, 2021

"AS a student at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Liorah LEV learned the intricacies of sound and the importance of structure when composing music. She also keeps in tune with the contemporary scene.

The South Florida native, who has Jamaican roots, blends technique and pop grooves on I Am LEV, her first EP, which was released on November 19. Lev says she wanted to show her versatility on the six-song project.

“I felt it was important, especially as a singer-songwriter-producer, to showcase my musical interests and talent in a way that doesn't place me inside a box. Yes, my main genre is electronic pop music, however, I infuse styles from other genres into those compositions,” she explained. “For example, I love to use my jazz training to make cross-over improvisations. I also utilise elements of reggae, EDM [electronic dance music], and funk. It's unexpected and, I believe, unique and fresh.”

She points to three songs from I Am LEV as examples. Nerve has a roots-reggae feel with a jazz-inspired bridge while Puppet carries a dancehall/reggae flavour. LEV also shows off her saxophone skills on an acoustic jazz rendition of Earth Wind and Fire's September...."   READ ON

REVIEWS

"I took my time and I attentively listened to your EP. It is clear you have worked very hard on yourself and this project. It is impressive and, with the mediocrity being thrown at us, I found your music soothing and authentic. You know your voice, and it is clear that you took great time and effort to sing lyrics that ideally complement your sound. September was rich and beautiful; so were many of the others. Your project has a coherency to it that we do not hear often these days.  I wish you the absolute best.  This is a solid project. Regardless of what the industry may say, you are onto something special." 

 

~ Lawrence (Larry) Watson, Professor, Berklee College of Music & Former Judge, WGBH TV "Sing That Thing".
