JUSTIN LEVINSON


Singer / Songwriter | http://www.justinlevinson.com/ |

Justin Levinson is a singer/songwriter from Burlington, Vermont. Renowned for a catalog of songs covering everything from power-pop to country to "feel good heartbreak", Justin has earned steady praise from audiences and critics alike since his 2005 debut.

Paying his dues and refining his craft at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Justin's breakthrough ultimately came with his ode to small-town life, "City With Two Streetlights", off of debut record 1175 Boylston. The song spent eight weeks on the top 25 CMJ charts, gaining airplay in over 350 stations across the country and catapulting Justin into the spotlight. Amid a slot in the 2006 International Pop Overthrow Tour and an award for Best Male Artist from the International Acoustic Music Awards, sophomore album Bury Your Love was released. With a dash of twang inherited from time spent in Nashville, the record earned praise as a folksy and somber departure---exemplified in melancholy concert staple "Home". Closing the decade was 2009's alt-country-inspired Predetermined Fate. The album brought Justin his strongest reviews to date, bolstered by the breakthrough success of Sirius radio staple "Waiting For Someone To Love Me"; the song went on to win Justin a nomination for Sirius Singer-Songwriters Discovery of the Year.

Justin Levinson's newest album, This Side of Me, This Side of You was released in January 2012. Describing his latest record as "feel good heartbreak", Justin---with backing band The Valcours---dresses his distress in an eclectic mix of piano, loud guitar, horns, strings, and dreamy harmonies, with contributions from acclaimed singer/songwriters Will Dailey, Gregory Douglass, and Liz Longley.

"Juxtaposing upbeat melodies with often serious subject matter, Justin creates perfectly catchy tunes that nobody can resist singing along to", says the Plattsburgh Pipeline. Dan Bolles of Seven Days notes Justin's "knack for letter-perfect pop hooks", while Snob's Music blog has praised Justin's capability of "penning lyrics that put a smile on your face with vivid imagery and clever turns of phrase, all wrapped up with a keen sense of humour." On his effortless tackling of multiple genres, Skope Entertainment declares "the best thing about Levinson's music is that it has layers". And Frank Gutch Jr. of Acoustic Music Exchange confidently declared "no matter what kind of day I will be having, my head will raise and a voice inside me will say, 'It is a good day when I hear Levinson'."
