Since Billboard Magazine featured singer, songwriter, and actor, Levi Kreis as one of the top three fan-funded artists in their annual DIY issue in 2011, the talented musician has been hard at work perfecting his latest album, Imagine Paradise.
Levi’s latest album, Imagine Paradise, set to release on June 20, 2013, is filled with passion and expression from his personal experiences of sexuality and relationships, infused with R&B and dance music beats. Combined, it’s a firestorm of rhythms and soulful lyrics that come right from the heart.
“I had a brilliant opportunity of sitting on the phone with some of my dearest fans, hearing them convey to me the things that were on their heart and mind,” said Levi as he described how each song was inspired and customized thanks in part to the generous backers of the kick-starter funded album. “I then gave my best effort to answer them with a positive uplifting theme song. I’ve never done anything harder, and I’ve never done anything more rewarding. You realize how we are all the same when you invite other peoples life story to be your creative muse. I discovered that our lives may look different, but core human emotions bind us together in a way that is truly profound.
The result is a patch-work of Levi’s personal experiences and those of the funders stories. Inspire Paradise will be Levi’s sixth album release. He has had several songs featured on major network television shows including The Vampire Diaries, Sons of Anarchy, and The Apprentice, and has appeared on The View, David Letterman, and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
