Band/artist history
Introducing Son Of Slaves Born and raised in brooklyn, New York, USA, Shariiyah Levi discovered his musical roots at a time when black artists were thriving in the world as top rated musicians, singers, & superstars. These artists were like personal teachers to Levi, who listened to every inch of a song to learn flow & dynamics. At the young age of eight, he was writing lyrics... still, however, engulfed in his own visual perception of the time & world around him. A young black boy in awe of his culture and at the same time ..afraid of it. It wasn't until the late 80s, when hip-hop was alive and well, that Levi began to take his musical ideas seriously and started to teach himself piano & drums. Soon guitar, bass, and whatever else Levi desired for the creative process. He could rap, scratch, & dance . By 1990, Shariiyah Levi was known as an artist who could write, play, & perform. He presented his band International Zoo in NYC, and always received standing ovations. So inspired by Levi's band, Fleetwood Mac & U2 had the phrase or text"ZOO" planted into their works. 10 years later, Son Of Slaves was born due to Levi's deep inner soul searching of his past and his future. Respectively an artist and a voice of passion, Shariiyah Levi and his art, life, and soul are represented on his latest writings, "ESCAPE". His first ever work of such nature using all acoustic instruments with hip-hop drum loops and samples to produce a warm tone reminiscent of the 70s. Levi has been on stage or in the studio with the following artists & groups: A Flock of Seagulls Richie Havens Kurtis Blow The Fatboys Stetsasonic MCs Guru (Gangstarr) Nosliw The Roots No Jazz SWV Metaphysics Lisha R. Kelly Lauren Hill UNICEF Cowboys On Dope Currently in Europe, Levi plans to tour in both Europe and USA to promote the release of "Escape"...A seventeen song collection of thoughts, dreams, poems, and prayers saturated with cool soulful reflections. Real brass, pure strings, Levi's razzy vox & bluesy guitar make this an album worthy of attention.
