ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

It's never been the normal way for LEVI WEAVER. Forget for a moment that his dad was a professional rodeo cowboy and a missionary. Set aside that he moved to England for two years just... because. And let's move past the fact that at one point, he was studying to be a baseball play-by-play announcer. Even when he finally settled on a career, it's still been anything but normal for Levi. "Oh, there's no way I can ever give career advice. I got my big break by winning a MySpace contest. I mean, c'mon." Weaver says with a wry grin. That "Big Break" started as a support slot for Imogen Heap on the Birmingham stop of her 2006 UK tour, but very quickly became something more when the Grammy Nominee asked Levi to join her on her entire North American tour. Since then, abnormal has continued to be the norm. After releasing his debut LP, the 2008 release "You Are Never Close To Home, You Are Never Far From Home" Weaver logged about 30,000 miles playing mostly house shows... in a 1993 Honda Accord.
