NASHVILLE, TN) – LEVI HUMMON released his self-titled debut EP April 1 and will celebrate its success next Wednesday (4/20) with a special show at 12th & Porter. The Valory Music Co. recording artist will headline the Nashville hotspot with Devin Dawson and Jillian Jacqueline opening. More on the event can be found here.
Award-winning songwriter Jimmy Robbins produced the project with Levi penning four of the five tracks. The skilled musician has also collaborated with songwriters Jon Nite, Josh Osborne, Nicolle Galyon and Liz Rose, among others. Currently, Levi is featured as one of CMT’s Listen Up Artists in addition to an Artist to Watch by The Huffington Post. Rolling Stone – who named Levi an Artist You Need to Know – premiered the “First Listen” of the EP, which has already received raved reviews:
"...'Life's for Livin',' the EP's opening track, has been a crowd-pleaser live – thanks to how it both showcases Hummon's crisp, diverse vocals that can juggle attitude and aptitude in one line and a chant-along vibe that sits somewhere between Ed Sheeran's peppier moments, pre-1989 Taylor Swift and his genre-blending contemporaries like Thomas Rhett."
– Rolling Stone Country
"... a first-rate composition that deserves a chance to be heard."
– Sounds Like Nashville
"We're calling it: Rising Big Machine artist Levi Hummon…is going to explode in 2016."
– Nashville Lifestyles
In addition to his own project, Levi has also penned Superstar Steven Tyler’s song “Red, White and You,” which is featured nationally in the new Skittles commercial. He has previously shared the stage with Sam Hunt, Maddie & Tae, Alabama, Dwight Yoakam, Kelsea Ballerini, Cam and Dan + Shay. Billy Currington will feature Levi on select dates of the SUMMER FOREVER TOUR.
Levi will hit the road at the end of April in support of his EP, which also includes his song "Guts And Glory,” inspired by the spirit of the Ram Truck brand. In a new partnership with Ram, Levi will be riding to his tour destinations in various cities in a new 2016 Ram 1500 pickup. The truck brand will also be capturing content on the tour for future use on Ram social pages and its Ram Life hub on the brand’s website. The route will include select cities including San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, Austin, Detroit, Atlanta and New York. The tour kicks off April 21 and fans can follow along using #GutsGloryRam.
