Known for lyrical insight & positive message, Tony Winner Levi Kreis' 4th CD sets out to be a shameless celebration of love and life.

Note additions to the $50 incentive:  You choose between the initial incentive or the new incentive: a phone call from me and my piano singing to you the song of your choice.  All $50 backers will also receive an autographed copy of the album sent to your door, and a digital download of the album 2 weeks prior to release.

 Note additions to the $250 incentive: In addition to the original incentives listed, all $250 backers will receive an exclusive audio CD of my sold out performance in NYC at Joe’s Pub on February 28th, 2011.  Includes songs from all three albums including “Let It Go” from this album you are backing.

Note additions to the $10 incentive:  In addition to a digital download of the album 2 weeks prior to release, all $10 backers will receive a personally autographed 8x10.

If these past two years have done anything for me, it has taught me to live without the limiting beliefs I've carried about myself for so long.  Self love is a journey that we are all taking in one way or another, and for me, it has become the most life altering practice to date.

Visioning my craft with no limits, and visioning a message that inspires us to see the perfection in who we are, RIGHT WHERE WE ARE, this album is almost birthing me instead of the other way around.  The songs that are coming out of me seem capable of reaching a broader, more mainstream audience while maintaining the underlying spiritual aspect I've always incorporated into my music.

The money we raise here pays for a producer that can take my songs, my voice, and my sound, and finally present me to the world with a quality that I've not had the opportunity to experience in my career thus far.  It pays to mix and master the project so it sounds lovely to your ears.  Most everything else I can handle myself.  I will have a weekly video blog at www.levikreis.com revealing to you the entire "making of" process. 

I will also include special "acoustic versions" of some of the songs on the album, especially for those of you who always love the unplugged, intimate recordings of mine.  

You are the sole reason I've been able to share a bit of my gift and message to the world.  I'm grateful to have you a part of the team on this, my 4th studio album.
