Editorial Reviews

Levi's new CD, "One Of The Ones", is an intimate collection of songs regarding the intricacies of human relationships. Framed by nothing but a piano and his voice, these songs are carried by lyrics that are naked, vulnerable, and instantly relatable. (Includes 2 Live Tracks).

I just read an article on Levi and was drawn to his upbringing. I visited his website where I got a glimpse of his music and was blown away. Too bad Amazon doesn't have snippets to sample - you must listen to this guy. His music is pure - only a piano and his voice. I fell in love with his delivery - totally the opposite of the more popular and overproduced sound in music today. Sample his songs on his website ([...]) and I think you'll agree - the talent is there, I just hope the rest of the world catches on.

I do not give a 5 star lightly!

Levi Kreis...

My prediction for the next big thing. Absolutely magical what he does on the piano. A voice that has a vulnerability to it that just makes you feel what he is saying. I got the CD recently for Christmas and I feel such a connection to him. I'm not normally into the not so known people, but his talent cannot be ignored! I highly suggest this CD for anyone!

I'm disappointed for the first time since I've been buying from Amazon.com. I cannot believe that this CD is not available. I read an article on Gay.com about this new artist and went to his website. Absolutely amazing. Go to his website, levikreis.com and listen to his music. It will touch your heart and soul. There is a beautiful passion, vulnerability, and sensuality in his voice that I have never heard before. Not many artists or songs can make you cry the first time you listen to them, but his do. Incredible!

Something strange happened to me the first time I listened to this album. I fell completely in love with it. I shouldn't have. I'm a fan of folk music, classical, Celtic music and bluegrass, 1960s serious rock and roll. I am not particularly a fan of pop music. But there is something about this young man's voice, lyrics, piano, tunes -- everything wonderfully combines to create this totally amazing and fantastic album. I'm trying to explain it but I'm failing miserably. Let me put it this way: This album is pop music performed with a very specific audience in mind. And, at first blush, I don't meet any of the criteria to fit that mold. And it just doesn't matter. Here's what the album offers: Rhythm, melody, back beat, strong, healthy vocal quality, intelligent lyrics, talented, mature control and awareness of the primary instruments (here, a piano and a set of vocal chords.) Kreis has an honest and earnest delivery as a singer. It seems as though he not only believes in the characters in his songs but he believes in himself and his own talent. That joy, folks, is contagious.

Even if you don't think you like pop, fit the intended audience demographics or appreciate the piano -- check this album out. Hell, look at the preceding reviews -- all 11 are at 5 stars and I'm adding a twelfth.

He has a few other albums, too, of which I found one other to be as incredibly good (ahem, Bygones.) The others I can take or leave, but since this isn't a review of them, I'll just say that this album is ~not~ a fluke.

Kreis is impressive. What a pleasant surprise.

I stumbled across this man on Myspace...what a treat!

His voice is so haunting.

Being a gay male singer....his words mean so much to the listener.

"I Should Go" is the best song on the Cd with "Lonely Sunday Morning" being a close second. As you listen to the emotions....you are right there with him. I hope he gets the attention he deserves. AMAZING.

Once in a great while we are blessed with an artist who emerges, as if from a cocoon, as resplendant as a butterfly. Such an artist is Levi Kreis. Learn his name, you're going to hear big things from this young man.
With all my degrees in music, i rarely swoon anymore. Heard too much, seen too much, and i certainly appreciate the greats of old and the few of today. Levi's voice has such a plaintive, vulnerability that is is literally tear-inducing. I get choked up when i listen to his delivery of the tender lyrics in the songs that he writes...and then sings. From the opening "I should go", you will be touched. Having seen him live a few years back, i can say that it is impossible to describe his pianistic achievements and abilities. I saw one review, and if i may borrow a few words,.. "to watch him play is like watching someone speaking in tongues." I might have paraphrased a bit. Find this young man's music, listen to it, love it and share it.
He is truly the real deal, and he's going places.

I'm a singer/keyboardist myself and I was immediately drawn to Levi's voice when I heard him singing the song "Hardly a Hero" in the movie Kiss the Bride. I had to stop the movie and search out on the internet who this was. I ordered this album and his second one and I've been enjoying them immensely. I think he has a beautiful voice and on top of that he has a lot of great songs that are passionate, meaningful and also it's music I can relate to. It's so hard to find really good music these days. Or at least it's been that way for much of the last 10 years at least in my opinion. Almost the entire album is piano/vocal and it's amazing how full each song can be with just those two instruments. Highly recommend it!
