Levi The Poet, a writer, storyteller and spoken word artist, releases his new album 'Cataracts' this Friday, February 23rd. 'Cataracts' is Levi The Poet's fifth Studio album and his first new record in over three years.
"This whole album has been an undertaking whose scope spans a much larger period of life than just the time that I spent writing it - or the time I've spent promoting it - and at this point, I simply can't wait to get it all out into the world", explains Levi The Poet.
A performance artist and storyteller native to The Land of Enchantment, Levi The Poet has toured his way around the country and beyond with bands and artists spanning the full spectrum of genre, interacting with audiences in hundreds of venues - house shows to universities, dive bars to colleges, conferences, schools, festivals, churches and art spaces - throughout the country, with international performances as nearby as Canada, and as distant as New Zealand. Levi combines advocacy and artistry in a language that speaks beyond words. A language that resonates with life lived, universal. Ever a fan of truth and narrative, he has successfully woven the two together throughout his career in both autobiographical and fiction spoken-word storytelling.
Levi combines heavy issues of faith, love, sexuality, mental illness, addiction, abuse and identity with the contrasted brightness of pseudo-fantastical story and myth.
