Bruce Lev is a truly independent artist and greatly influenced by the Beatles and numerous other classic rock-n-roll bands from the 60’s and 70’s. Originally from Kings Park, New York, Bruce went to college and honed his crafts in the DC area for over 20 years. Then, in a biblical-type decision, he moved to the mountains of Panama for 5 years and found himself teaching the children of Panama music and songs of, well you guessed it, the Beatles! Then Bruce made his way down from the mountains, his beard turning bright white and carrying two tablets with new music written on them, and returned to the United States Southwest in Phoenix, Arizona in 2011. Once back in the US, Bruce had the opportunity to “Get Back” into the recording studio and create more music. As luck would have it, Bruce had access to some of the best musicians in the Phoenix area and began churning out numerous outstanding recordings. A number of these recordings have received song writing awards, and in 2014 Bruce was named “Best Adult Contemporary Artist” in the Artists in Music Awards. Then in 2015 Bruce was named “Classic Rock Artist of the Year” in the Josie Music Awards and also in Fair Play Country Music Magazine. Now in 2016 Bruce takes an “Alternative” turn and has put together an eclectic compilation of tracks reminiscent of the Beatles’ White Album entitled "The Declaration of Independents" highlighting the impressive surge of success by independent artists at the Grammy level due in part by the "Power of the People-net", internet by the people and for the people!
