Rich Levering -
With a unique blend of raw talent and stage presence, singer/songwriter Rich Levering is emerging as an impressive new performing songwriter.
A native of Philadelphia and a graduate of Berklee School of Music/Emerson College, Rich recognized his love for music at the age of 5, when he was taught the Suzuki Method, learning how to play the guitar from ear while also discovering his affinity for singing. He wrote his first song at fourteen, but it wasn't until Berklee that he really found his love for writing meaningful, catchy, and memorable music.
He had the fortunate opportunity to work alongside talented producers of indie to multi-platinum success. These producers, who share Rich’s enthusiasm for writing relevant, universal music, gave Rich the experience and direction needed to help him embark on his already promising career.
Rich Levering, with his smooth pop-rock vocals infused with soulful beats and instantly catchy hooks, is sure to make first time listeners into longtime fans. Rich's energy and passion is showcased not only in his music, but in his spirited live shows as well. Rich has opened for Lyle Lovett at Philadelphia’s acclaimed Kimmel Center last year and has performed across North America on Van's Warped Tour in the MySpace.com and Skull Candy tents, performed at the House of Blues in CA., as well as appearing on a national cable show on HGTV which he wrote and performed original music.
Rich has a simple but generous intention – to engage and inspire. "I feel like the music that I write has the power to connect positively with anyone that takes a listen.” He'll be performing his own original style of heartfelt love songs and feel good, bar-friendly, soul-infused pop to audiences throughout the Northeast this winter and spring to promote his new EP.
