At the center of the most potent folk music is a shamanistic vessel that’s traveled miles in the outside world and miles within his or her emotional interior to emerge with music that instantly breaks down walls and opens hearts.
Folk singer-songwriter Eli Lev beholds the gifts of such journeys. He’s a searcher, a sage, and a storyteller with a message of unity in song. He pens hymns for everyday enlightenment—songs that resonate because they’re heartfelt, earthy, and they offer wisdom culled from self-discovery.
His new album releases, All Roads East and Way Out West, imaginatively and intrepidly connect spheres and generations with a body of work that’s irresistibly uplifting, emotionally resonant, and quietly groundbreaking.
“When I’ve been on the road, and I can’t speak the language, I’ve always been able to play a song and suddenly everyone’s singing and dancing. There’s a connection there, and, in that instant, there is a community,” marvels the Washington, D.C.-based artist.
Listen to Eli's bluesy funk anthem Go Down or his uplifting indie folk single Making Space, hailed by AXS online magazine as "sweet, simple and everything one could ask for in a travel song."
