INTERVIEW: Adam Levy

How would you classify your music?

Tough question.  I play a number of styles.  And mix things.  Rock works.

Who are some of your top 5 musical influences?

Judee Sill, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Randy Newman, The Beatles.

What do you want fans to take from your music?

I want to bring joy… and hope… and make them think about things, even if just a little differently

Can you tell us a bit about your latest album? When will it be released and how does it differ from your previous work?

My newest record is an album about my son’s struggle & death.  It deals with his great art, with my grief and with the possibilities of serving great tragedy.  It is a largely acoustic, intimate record.

What do you love and hate about the Music Business?

I love everything about connecting with people and making art that raises the spirit and consciousness.  The business part is a necessary evil. ;7)

What is the best concert you have been to? What do you like most about playing live?

Best show I’ve ever seen was Brice Springsteen.  Playing live is transcendent–you sometimes leave your body.

Is there a song on this latest CD that stands out as your personal favorite, and why?

“How I Let You Down” because it captures the loss, longing and regret of my son’s death.

How have you evolved as an artist over the last few years? What made you decide to come back into the music business?

I try not to do the same thing twice.  I try to improve my lyrics, singing and playing.  I’m always searching.  I have never stopped.

If you could meet, play a gig, co-write a song, have dinner, get drunk with any band or artist (dead or alive) who would it be?

I think a co-write with Prince would be awesome.  A weekend cabin hang with the Beatles would be pretty awesome too.  Or a big show where I get to swap solos with Hendrix.

So tell us what’s next?  

New Honeydogs record in spring 2016.
