This is my friend Levi.
Some know him as Levi The Poet.
I first met him last Summer when some friends of mine were throwing a Bar BQ. Levi was in town from Albuquerque doing Re:Train. I had heard some of his work when I lived back in Florida, enjoyed it, but didn’t recognize him for his work until later on.
I was able to meet up with him this past Thursday for a couple hours when he was in Capitol Hill for XXXCHURCH’s “Porn Kills” tour. We spent close to an hour in Cafe Vita discussing the ideas of lasting community, theology, growing roots while being a touring artist, the death of his father, how the church has become family, and normal day to day life in both our lives.
My original idea was to write a short piece on some of our conversation. After our time together, I decided it would be better to put it out in a video and allow for Levi to use his own words to tell his story.
I have about 50 minutes of both video and audio from our time together on the hill and driving through the city. In the next few days, I will be editing and posting it in a video.
Thankful for the time I got to spend with this dude this past week. Encouraged and humbled by his willingness to simply serve others and share the gospel through his art.
He recently released and album called Seasons. Go check out his work at Levithepoet.net
