All About Me – Voice Memo and Lyrics

This is my initial voice memo of the second song, All About Me. I just pounded this out on the upright piano in my living room so I would remember what was in my head.  Today is Sunday, June 30th, 2024. Since last Tuesday, I’ve spent every moment of my time building out the production of this song  - from ... Read More

Levi Meets The Cast of MDQ Metropolis Performing Arts Centre

Few things are more fun to Jason and I than finding really cool theaters in charming locations with an engaged staff, heartfelt productions, and an openness to host a tour date of mine. My in-laws live a short drive from Arlington Heights, IL. We always thought the area was quaint and heard good things about the folks at Metropolis Performing ... Read More

Sunshine Cathedral – March 16th, 2024

I started writing songs at age twelve... ...the same year I started spending weekends performing in churches around the southeast. My first album was called Just Trust at age 13. From that moment on, being a singer/songwriter was all I wanted to do. The LK Archives are still under construction as I write this, but if you’ve read through chapter ... Read More

Puerto Vallarta 2024

Let me start with the info you aspiring Puerto Vallarta travelers will want to know. Firstly, if you have not made a reservation at Casa Kimberly, make it a priority.  Casa Kimberly was a home away from home for movie stars Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

After Hours with Roaman (EP94)

The traveling songster from Florence, Italy stayed with me a while longer after recording our main Imagine Paradise Podcast episode (airing April 18th) to show a more personal side. We had a good laugh at spirituality, religion, the inconsistency of humanity and why it's important not to take any of these things too seriously. Just the same, I find him to ... Read More

Rough Around The Edges: Live at Genghis Cohen

I had been living in Los Angeles for only a few months. Somehow I found a circle of Southern transplants - all rejects from other entertainment areas like Nashville and Atlanta. A reckless crew vowing to rise together or go down together. One evening, we were all walking down Melrose Avenue and saw an advertisement outside of the Zephyr theater. ... Read More

After Hours with Ray Davis (EP92)

Growing up in Compton, seeing a higher potential for music, and playing with Earth Wind and Fire - all discussions I had after hours with my guest Ray Davis. Enjoy getting to know Ray and his bright, bright light as he’ll be back for other episodes.  Once you see the actual podcast dropping in April, you will no doubt feel ... Read More

EP4-Revelation – Part 2

The May 17th, 2024 single, Revelation, continues to take shape as I explore further identifying the middle section breakdown, re-addressing the introduction and finding a feel-good sing-a-long vocal hook. I continue to be amazed at how sample libraries can provide such incredible performances for instruments I do not personally play. While the song is syncopated and soulful, the midsection heads ...

Chicago, IL – 9th Annual Home for the Holidays Tour – Final Stop

It's always the final stop that gets the least vlogging love. Always barely enough energy to get to the finish line. Chicago was no different. Two great audiences and a great Christmas afterwards. No recommendations. Not artist tips this blog. Just a few photos, a vlog that didn't have a final moment, and a lot of rest. The 9th Annual ... Read More
