Shirley Levi's DIY Spotlight in the August edition of MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE

DIYSpotlight Shirley Levi Shirley Levi is the embodi- ment of a DIY artist, a self- taught singer, songwriter, producer and activist. Her guitar-driven style and soulful vocals are a blend of rock, country, folk, pop and blues that she calls Shirley RAWk. Levi has come a long way from her days play- ing in the San Diego music underground... Nowadays, she opens for musical legends like Neil Young, Dixie Chicks, Ryan Adams, Ben Harper and Sheryl Crow and has earned endorsements from Gibson Guitars and Marshall Amps. Although she writes and produces her own music, Levi had the honor of working on a track with hit maker Val Garay (who has over 100 Gold and Platinum Records). NPR flagship radio station KCRW called Levi an “Artist to Look Out For.” Indeed, accolades have come from music publications, journal- ists and blogs around the world. Many compare her to musical legends such as Pasty Cline, Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed and Patti Smith. In addition to being a self-sufficient artist, Levi is also an outspo- ken activist and uses her music to advocate for change––yes, she’s a rebel with a cause. Her lyrics are filled with messages of unity, compassion and determination, with vocals that often sound like a punk rock prayer. Although Shirley Levi is an American artist, she also celebrates all races and hopes to unite people by infusing Hebrew, Farsi and Spanish into her music and live sets––a gutsy DIY move.

"In my long career, I have championed numerous musicians. Some
have gone on to have quite a well known following and success.
Some have not. This young woman is Shirley Levi. She sent me
a song about 4 years ago, and that led to many others that were
played on Lopsided World Of L. I have spoken to a handful of
people in the music industry about Shirley more than once. 
About how much I believe she is the real deal. So far, I haven't 
seen anyone try hard enough to follow up. She is highly talented, aggressive, and someone I believe in so much. Her lyrics are
one of many strong facets of her talents. The Iranian born to parents of Jewish faith and 
vibrant and going to be a well known musician one day.
I believe that 100%. Do I know Shirley personally? Yes.
We had dinner in Los Angeles two years ago. I found her
to be an honest soul. She is a beautiful person, inside and
out. Vivacious. Recently she was invited and performed live at the Neil Young 
Bridge School Benefit concert in front of many. Later in December, I will be playing two songs that probably
most radio persons would never do. The songs were one-take
recordings on an iPhone on the stairway at her Hollywood
apartment. Both display her talent and willingness to let me
play the songs for regardless of studio quality. That takes
balls on her part. I will also replay one of the songs in January. Soon she will enter a recording studio, and work on her
second album. So myself included look forward to her
musical magic in 2016. Also, look forward to Shirley being the Fashion feature
in January on my website. She does write her own
material, so just her words about her fashion do's
and don'ts are wonderful to read. Over the years I have given up on numerous artists that
had my full support, and after feeling that I was ignored
at one point, I stopped my support. That's the way it is
musicians. If you fail to remember who cared in a sincere
way, then you are on your own, and I am speaking for
many of my peers also. Just the way it is. Keep in mind,
if you are in it for the moment, for many it doesn't last. Shirley will always have mine!" - Jonathan L
