Welcome 2 a new world of sound, thought & life.
from the ancients..thru the underground...
..a son of slaves has been born...a chosen one.
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
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.
