Congrats to Levi Parham on signing with Austin’s Music Road Records!
Look for a new release in 2016, and in the meantime, check out his self-released EP Avalon Drive, which elicited some goods words:
“The melody is enticing, there’s a melancholy feel” – CMT Edge
“[One] of my best new discoveries this past week:…Levi Parham” – Sean Moeller, Paste Magazine
“Parham [has a] soulful, gritty and tender voice” – The Boot
“Whatever it is, Levi Parham has it.” – The Bluegrass Situation
“Souther roots course through his music.” – Folk Radio UK
“An Okie version of Ray LaMontagne…” – Kansas City Star
Levi Parham and John Calvin Abney hit the road together soon! The Pitch advises you to catch them in Kansas City at The Riot Room:
Levi Parham was last in KC in January, which leads us to believe that this Oklahoma native is rarely at home. Parham is continuing his road-warrior ways in support of his 2014 EP, Avalon Drive, six Americana songs that showcase his grainy, warm voice. Fans of Ray LaMontagne and Amos Lee should find plenty to like in this Southern charmer.
Folk World reviews Levi Parham‘s new release Avalon Drive:
Levi Parham sends us a six track promo-EP called Avalon Drive. Rocking the stars away, he brings a strong mixture of Americana, bluegrass and rock with occasionally some nice raw edges. Something happens on this EP. Parham has a nice, strong voice and I like the edgy way he writes, sings and arranges his compositions. Parham shows that he has all the ingredients to become a major name in the more underground sounding Americana-Rock styled music. Intriguing and definitely worth a listen at his webpage.
Levi Parham‘s “Ruby” is a top video of the week at The Alternate Root!
The Oklahoman‘s Brandy McDonnell features Levi Parham‘s new music video for “Ruby” – which just premiered on The Boot – as BAM entertainment blog’s Wednesday Video Spotlight.
Levi Parham‘s new music video “Ruby” premieres today at The Boot, which praises “Parham’s soulful, gritty and tender voice [that] provides a cool contrast to the young boy’s innocence and vibrancy.”

Flagstaff Live features Levi Parham as a Hot Pick this week:
Levi Parham shines as a dazzling mash-up of radical down-stroke blues sung in the sultry vibrato of a terresetrial angel with perfectly groomed facial hair… Parham’s on a roll, piquing interest with every show in a display of soulful resonance that captures the spirit of the truest blues, though his catalog runs the gamut.
