New country group Levon, dually signed to Sony Music’s Columbia Nashville and Epic Records, have released their self-titled debut EP. Produced and arranged by Jamie Houston for GB Productions, the five-song EP is available now for fans to download and stream.

Levon consists of three best friends: Northbrook, Illinois, native Michael David Hall (on guitar and lead vocals, with a soaring five-octave range); Sumter, South Carolina’s Jake Singleton (on harmonies, bass, and percussion); and Camden, Tennessee, native Ryan Holladay (on guitar, mandolin, banjo and harmonies). View a Levon brief video biography HERE.
Showcasing the band’s compelling song craft and harmonies, as well as their genre-transcending performance style and sound, their Levon EP features the following selections and songwriters:
1. “Why Oh Why”
Michael David Hall/James Dean Hicks/Jamie Houston
2. “Runaway Love”
Michael David Hall/Chris Lindsey/Jamie Houston
3. “Wired”
Michael David Hall/Marc Beeson/Jamie Houston
4. “Give Up Your Heart”
Jamie Houston/Craig Wiseman
5. “Ms. Marianne”
Michael David Hall/James Dean Hicks/Jamie Houston
 
Currently on a nationwide country radio tour to promote their new EP, Levon took yesterday off to fly to Pittsburgh, PA for a concert performance. While in flight, the band surprised Southwest Airlines passengers with an a cappella rendition of “Give Up Your Heart” HERE.
A debut single from the Levon EP will impact country radio this summer.
A few of the trio’s musical roots are suggested by their name, an homage to the talents of The Band’s Levon Helm, as well as Elton John and his song, “Levon.”  All in their twenties, Levon’s members nonetheless share a collective musical passion for the 1970s “Laurel Canyon Sound” generation whose lyrics and melodies have remained relevant long after their time on the charts.
Playing such Music City-area venues as Puckett’s in nearby Leiper’s Fork and gigging for tips outside Nashville fave, the Pancake Pantry, contributed to the early buzz on Levon.  To date, the band has expanded its résumé to include festival dates and opening slots for such artists as Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Willie Nelson, Kelsea Ballerini, Alabama and many others.

The singer, songwriter and guitar slinger was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer last December. Successful surgery and chemotherapy removed the cancer and gave him a renewed sense of purpose for his life and career. He was inspired to write a song called “Is It Already Time” about his ordeal, and many from the team that helped launch his career at Sony Music/Columbia Records have reunited to produce, promote, publicize, market and sell his new music for a worthy cause – cancer research.
