We caught up with Paul Levinson to talk about his music. At Indiy we champion musicians.
Let’s get to it…
I can write and perform a song and get it out to the world without needing anyone’s approval.
I sometimes record in studios, but with the COVID lockdown…
I have been doing it at home in my studio office.
I enjoy both…
But I do like recording and production a little more!
“A blend of lyrics and music that harken back to the Beatles and Beach Boys, but are hard to categorize.”
I just finish a song and release it!
At least one or two new songs.
And more virtual performances at science fiction conferences.
Here’s an example…
Chris Hoisington produced my most recent album…
‘Welcome Up: Songs of Space and Time‘ which I released in 2020.
We recorded it at Old Bear Studios, with Jeremy Thompson on guitars, Steve Padin on drums and keyboard, and Chris doing background harmonies…
I’m looking forward to collaborating with them again!
Rubber Soul, Revolver, and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band…
The Beatles remain my all-time favorite group!
And those are my three favorite albums, song for song, lyrics, and the music and production…
No other album compares with those three!
I already mentioned Chris Hoisington, Jeremy Thompson, and Steve Padin at Old Bear Records.
Anthony Hoisington does some great keyboard, too.
Don Frankel played accordion on my 1972 LP, ‘Twice Upon A Rhyme‘, and again on my 2020 album ‘Welcome Up: Songs of Space and Time‘.
Peter Rosenthal played guitars on ‘Twice Upon a Rhyme‘, and co-wrote two of the songs on ‘Welcome Up‘ with me.
Joel Iskowitz has done illustrations for the covers of my novels, and also my compilation album, ‘Spun Dreams‘.
All of these folks deserve shout-outs!
