Levi Hummon made his imprint on the Nashville community before he realized the extent of his craft. Born and raised in Music City, Levi was surrounded by music greats. Even though he studied painting in college, he was being drawn back to his dormant musical talents – singing and songwriting. At the close of a significant relationship, Levi began to explore songwriting as a way to navigate his life and relationships. Soon after, Levi realized his need to return home in order to turn this newfound hobby into a reality.
Learning to always bring his distinctive ideas and concepts to a writing session, Levi quickly streamlined his unique style. “You’re letting someone into your world which is really vulnerable,” he says. “I write from a reflective & personal place. Ultimately, I couldn’t see anyone else singing these songs because they reflect my life.”
Once he moved back to Nashville, Levi continued to develop his personal sound, often with the help of his father, Grammy-Award winning songwriter Marcus Hummon. He then started finding himself working with notable songwriters such as Jimmy Robbins, Shane MacAnally, Andrew Dorff, Josh Osborne, Jonathan Singleton, Nathan Barlowe, Brandy Clark and Trevor Rosen, among many others. Levi also wrote with legendary entertainer Steven Tyler on the rocker’s past single “Red, White and You,” - which hit #1 in Italy.
Levi’s collaborations with Jimmy Robbins eventually led the singer/songwriter being produced by Robbins. “Levi has a way of grabbing your attention from the very first note,” Robbins shared. “I knew from our first session that he had a voice that was going to matter for Country music. He was born into songwriting and you can tell that when you work with him. His instincts are a great combination of commercial and artistic that make his music feel important and weighted while still feeling light and fun.”
The LEVI HUMMON EP, released by Big Machine Label Group in 2016, is a glimpse into the songwriter’s zest for life, thirst for adventure and homage to his upbringing. Levi co-wrote four of the five tracks on the EP making a personal mark on his debut project. Following the EP’s release, Levi’s single “Guts and Glory” gained national attention from iconic truck brand, Ram Trucks. The automobile powerhouse sponsored Levi’s cross-country promo tour in 2016 and positioning him as the 2017 spokesperson for the Ram Truck brand.
Levi’s been busy on the road touring with the likes of Frankie Ballard, Kelsea Ballerini, Billy Currington, Hunter Hayes, Sam Hunt, Kip Moore, David Nail, Michael Ray, and A Thousand Horses. While on the road, Levi introduced fans to his new single, "Don’t Waste The Night". "It's been an amazing couple of years & I’ve started to discover what the fans love. "Don't Waste The Night" is such a fun track and I can’t wait to share all this hard work with the world,” Levi shared. "Don’t Waste The Night" is set to be released at the end of April through Iconic Records and will be available everywhere digitally.
