This album has been at the centre of my life for the past four years and I couldn't be more excited to share it with you.
"Crafting musical pieces that delicately reflect an emotional intensity that is both gentle and captivating, Levi explores rich textures, climactic soundscapes and intimate piano solos in his work. It’s also an album that captures both Levi’s depth and craft, with the artist working to create a cohesive collection of moving songs."
