Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, may I present to you Tony Levitas. Excellent music, finely crafted, intricately composed. And there are lots of songs to listen to, so you’ll have the pleasure of listening to a lot of really good music! Listening to Tony Levitas kind of reminded me of Don McLean, Bob Dylan, and Jeremy Fisher all rolled into one.
As you may know by now, I am a huge fan of the harmonica. That was one of the first things that drew me to Barley Station the first time I heard them. There’s just something about hearing a harmonica in a song that immediately grabs my attention, so when I heard it in Tony’s songs, I knew I was going to enjoy myself.
Tony Levitas’ music is kind of a Folky, Classic Rock mix. Very reminiscent of your late 60s early 70s type of music – passionate, soulful, full of emotion – Tony Levitas will hook you with his highly skilled riffs and reel you in with his extraordinary vocals, intelligent lyrics, and laid-back style. His vocals are very mellow, yet intensely captivating. He had me hanging on every word.
One of the things I noticed right off the bat when listening to Tony Levitas was how important the lyrics were to him. These aren’t just songs. Again, just like some of the greatest songs from the Golden Age of music (60s and 70s), Tony’s songs transcend music and become an elegantly expressed story that just so happened to be accompanied by music.
My favorite song was “Power to Peace“. It was soft, easy, simple, yet somewhere inside that simplicity was a complexity of powerful thoughts and images. Perhaps I was hearing wrong, but at times in that song I could have swore I heard some elements of Pink Floyd in the vocals. Give it a listen and let me know what you think. Then give a listen to all the rest of Tony’s songs courtesy of our friends over at ReverbNation. Share with your friends, and as always, enjoy!
