Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hello good people! I’m Levi/VACAY
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style
Someone once told me my music was like a massage to their heart. Haha that’s always stuck with me, I want to make people feel good and I want to speak a message of truth that resonates within the heart of people. My songs are always inspired by my life circumstances, lessons I learn or a message I feel people should hear. I also believe that a lot of the magic we feel in music comes from it’s imperfections. So, when I’m recording a song I like to minimize the amount of post production done to it.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
Yes! I will be opening for “Wild Rivers” at Adelaide Hall December 9th and i’d love to see your beautiful self there. I start my set solo, just playing and singing a couple of tunes on my guitar. I really enjoy that intimacy/ one on one time with an audience. Later in the set my band comes up and the party kicks in.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
That’s tough! I’d have to go with “The Other Side”. It was the first song I released under this project so i’ve always felt like it was a good introductory to “VACAY”. The lyrics capture a vulnerability that I want people to get used to feeling in my music.
