Reviews for TRUST!! We've enjoyed each reviewers personal take on our songs and especially seeing the "through lines", the consistency in what they take away. The reviews are heartening, honoring and humbling…all in a very good way.
More coming, but here's a start!
Review from John Apice, No Depression: http://nodepression.com/album-review/levins-–-trust
- “Upon cracking open The Levins’ (pronounced The LeVinns) new album Trust – their second -- instantly caught me by surprise. Their title track kicks off the album and immediately I heard a delightful radiating tune with irrisitible glimmers of Richard and Linda Thompson.” Continue reading here...

- "The Levins have created a very pleasing album that is just the thing for when you want to feel better about the world. Continue reading here...
- John Hammel, Homegrown Music: "The Levins new cd Trust is a nonpareil example of perfect harmonization coupled with the lyrical and melodic gifts of a Paul Simon. I was impressed (rightly so) with their last cd and this new project cements the fact of their superlative artistry."
One review, by Tom Staudter, formerly of the NY Times, wrote such a wonderful review that was featured in the Croton Gazette and drew new listeners to our recent show in Peekskill. (The power of print!)
- "Songs that smile…. remarkable vocal arrangements that feature intertwining lines and gorgeous harmonies, a sun-splashed style underscores the positive messages of love, peace and self-awareness. A perfect antidote to the headlines of the NY Times and the world of sadness and horror hinted at on television. The straight forward vocals and unhurried tempos allow listeners to share in the earnest and honest musical art that Julia and Ira have perfected. Each tune serves as another stepping stone toward a better day and a richer life."
