After traversing 5 continents and 20 countries with only a guitar and a backpack, Humbird returns home to sing songs from the edge of the world. Combining a wintry longing with the warmth of a familiar folktale, Humbird stretches traditional genres of folk and Americana to embrace the unexpected. This music invites a refreshing dissonance into the house, it leaves breadcrumbs along the path and reflects light back at the stars.
Creating music out of a mosaic of influences like Joni Mitchell, Bon Iver and Bill Frisell, Humbird weaves it all together with powerful lyrics and a stubborn pursuit of the sound of the North. The release of Humbird’s double EP “Elsewhere” and “Where Else” in Summer 2017 is just the beginning.
Adam Levy is regarded by many to be one of the great American songwriters of his era. His newest solo endeavor might be his best and most original work to date. Levy is probably best known for his nearly 20 years of work as lead singer-songwriter for The Honeydogs. Levy's songwriting has always been musically expansive, exploring styles as diverse as American roots music, psychedelia, soul, world, jazz, and classical music. His lyrics have always been thoughtful, literary and provocative, and have garnered him international critical accolades and fans. Adam's wry wit and incisive lyrics are wrapped inside layers of deceptively beautiful melodies and hooks that come to life with his signature great guitar work. Paste Magazine once said Levy's songwriting captured "the zeitgeist of our time."
His lyrics reflect his years in social work, commitment to social justice issues and lifelong interest in history, culture and political matters. This has distinguished Adam among his peers as a singer-songwriter, blending the great traditions of pop and American folk music into something unique and timeless. Levy has also embarked on a slew of side-projects in the last 5 years: electronic experimental music with Liminal Phase, orchestral chamber pop with And The Professors, children's music with Bunny Clogs, '60s and '70s soul and funk with Hookers $ Blow, and early-mid 20th century jazz with Rose Room. Adam is currently working on his first truly solo project expected out in 2015, as well as a new Honeydogs record. He likes to think his best song is yet to come.
