Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Ann and Nancy Wilson first showed the world that women can rock when their band, Heart, stormed the charts in the ‘70’s with hits like “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” “Barracuda,” “Straight On,” and so many more. Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the ‘80’s and ‘90’s with huge hits like “These Dreams,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” “If Looks Could Kill,” “Never,” and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters’ enormous talents as musicians and singers.

As individuals, the sisters have also achieved significant success. Ann sang on songs that were both chart successes and motion picture themes, like “Almost Paradise” from Footloose, “Best Man in the World” from Goldenchild, and “Surrender to Me” from Tequila Sunrise, while Nancy composed and performed the scores to a half dozen motion pictures including the award winning “Jerry Maguire” and “Almost Famous.”

Along the way, music by Ann and Nancy Wilson and their band Heart sold more than 35 million albums, sold out arenas worldwide, and found their way into the soundtrack of American life through radio, motion pictures, television, and associations with branded sponsors. Today, songs made famous by Heart are heard in every aspect of contemporary culture.

"Levi has that rare quality of knowing exactly who he is. His phrasing, writing, singing,
and performing style are uniquely his own, and I am inspired and honored to be a part of his journey."
Shane Macanally
Grammy Award Winning Songwriter/Producer

Born & raised in Nashville TN, Levi Hummon naturally has songwriting in his blood. Originally expressing his talent via visual art, Levi took an early interest in painting, which he studied at college in St. Petersburg, FL. It was in St. Pete that Levi’s musical talents first revealed themselves. At the close of a significant relationship, he was drawn to writing songs – songs of his life and relationships. It wasn’t long before Levi realized his need to move back home to cultivate his songwriting craft; so back to Nashville he went.

Levi began to make his imprint on the Nashville community through regular co-writes with his father, Marcus Hummon (Grammy Award winning songwriter), and a regular rotation of writers who would join them. Levi loved relating to a listener through the stories he could craft. It wasn’t long before word spread of Levi’s talents, and he found himself writing with the greats such as Shane MacAnally (2014 ACM Songwriter of the Year), Andrew Dorff (Blake Shelton and Martina McBride), Josh Osborne (Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney), and of course, Marcus Hummon. Learning to always bring in his own ideas and point of view to a writing session, Levi quickly streamlined his unique style. “You’re letting someone into your world which is really vulnerable,” says Levi. “I write from a reflective & personal place and ultimately I couldn’t see anyone else singing these songs.”

As a member of a multi-generational music family, Levi Hummon certainly appreciates his roots. While Levi is very much his own person & artist, he strongly values giving credit where it is due – and he finds himself fortunate to have his family be part of his journey. In addition to his father’s musical foundation, Levi draws inspiration from his mother, Becca Stevens, who founded the socially conscious & philanthropic organization, Thistle Farms (a residential program and social enterprise made up of women who have survived prostitution, trafficking, and addiction). This became a natural place for Levi to become involved where he further witnessed how music can provide a healing effect to those whom have suffered tremendously. “Thistle farms has always been a family to me,” says Levi. “There is so much knowledge to gain from spending time with the women. It makes me want to always forgive, never take anything for granted, and love everyone.”

Continuing to develop his personal sound, Levi found himself in great company while in Nashville. Marcus and Becca casually had their friend and Hall of Fame Songwriter, Desmond Child over for dinner, where Levi played a few songs. Desmond’s reaction was profound and immediate – he insisted on working with Levi. Soon after, Levi’s tune “Make it Love,” was featured in Child’s film, Two: The Story of Roman & Nero, which appeared on the short list of nominations for the Oscar’s “Best Original Song”. That was just the beginning for Levi. With overwhelming support from Nashville’s music community, Levi signed with Fletcher Foster’s new management and entertainment company, Iconic Entertainment Group. Levi Hummon is currently writing and recording for his first full-length album.
