Support comes from Canadian roots-bluesman Levi Cuss – the raw honesty typical in his music speaks of a life of redemption; from troubles with the law, addiction, incredible sadness and loss, to love, strength and perseverance.
After the release of his debut album, “It’s War” in 2013, Levi toured extensively throughout Western Canada and following residencies in Banff headed south to Nashville, Tennessee to record his second album, “Night Thief”, which quickly garnered significant attention in the roots/blues scene. – he is now touring Europe promoting this album.
Cuss’ personal influences are those who have overcome diversity, he sees deep beauty in human strength, grit, and determination. His musical influences include the likes of Jason Isbell, Townes Van Zandt, and Steve Earle; the dark, honesty in his music reflects these influences.
Levi reckons the best thing about being a musician is “Being able to express myself on my own terms! The rush of performing and spilling my soul out into the music!” –check out his dirty blues for yourself and make your own mind up !!
