Levi Kreis is a singer-songwriter whose piano-centric approach has garnered him musical licenses for shows like The Vampire Diaries, Sons of Anarchy, and So You Think You Can Dance.
Like many of his musical heroes, Kreis appealed to the pop genre before settling in to what he knows best, country music. His recent album, Liberated, is transitional for him. His signature piano/vocal sound is now wrapped with the warmth of a pedal steel and mandolin, perfectly complimenting the tear in Levi’s voice. The album features a cover of Ronnie Milsap’s Stranger In My House along with Nobody In His Right Mind Would’ve Left Her, a #1 country hit for George Strait. The rest of the album is original material penned by Kreis, all confessional in nature and all rather personal about his divorce. Kreis says, “Writing these songs was my therapy. I’m not liberated from the past, but I’ve learned that willingness is all it takes for a jaded heart to crack open.” Liberated was released March 23rd, 2018.
