North Star (Westchester) 92YTribeca, and Lower East Side Club scene,
Ms Levinson, with her defined bold vocals reminiscent of Bonnie Tyler and outgoing stage presence captures a willing audience into her performance and moves them to their feet to dance with joy. We saw this at The North Star Inn when we had the utmost pleasure of experiencing her show. Backed up by three incredible talents on drums, guitar and bass; Chris, Vin and Bryan, along with Jodie's keyboard and lyrics, bring a full combination of rock and soul songs to the level of an A list band that could have been together for years, although they recently formed last winter.  A perfect mix of in sync talents to pack the house and shake it up with rousing applause.  Jodie is Produced by Lisa Ratner of Fastrax Production.

Jodie Levinson  & The Jodie Levinson Band
NYC Musician and Songwriter - Rock, Bluesy folk with an edge

Singer/songwriter Jodie Levinson is a native of Jersey and has always excelled in the performing arts. Jodie gravitated towards singing early on in life and developed her vocal skills while becoming proficient on piano. She continued perfecting her talents through college, performing at several venues and eventually collaborating with Zack Schwartz on several songs, three of which are featured on her debut album “In the City.” She emerged mastering her craft and has since performed at such famous venues as the  The Cutting Room and The Bitter End Rock Club as well as numerous other east cpast Clubs and venues.

In 2009, Jodie met Producer Matt Pendergrast (song remixer for artists including Mary J. Blige, Britney Spears & Ciara). Together, they recorded Levinson’s first single, “Matter of Taste,” co-written with Zack and featuring him on guitar.  Soon after this professional relationship, Jodie began working with hit composer/producer Lisa Ratner (Barbra Streisand, Vanessa Williams & Dolly Parton) at her Westchester based studio, Fastrack Studios. The result was her debut CD  “In the City,” a full-length album of up-tempo blues-and-jazz influenced pop.  She auditioned musicians soon after and formed the incredible Jodie Levinson Band.

Along with her music gigs and recording sessions, Jodie loves working with children. She teaches voice and piano to students at Bank St. School of Education and The Dalton School in New York City.   In addition, Jodie also teaches private lessons to aspiring musicians.

LAURA THOMAS and the Laura Thomas Band
Singer Songwriter Laura Thomas splits her time between Chi Town, LA and NYC. Laura was recently married to her musician husband Andy Dosmann in September 2011 and they often perform together.  Her style of rock inspired folk contemporary with  meaningful lyrics about NYC life, love and struggle for social justice to hope for a better society is both refreshing and real are reminiscent of a modern Joni Mitchell. Laura combines captivating melody and harmonys with her acustic guitar and combines with some of the best musicians in NYC on drums, bass, piano and electric. Her shows are always a must see.

Laura Thomas is an exceptional musician and great person with the voice of an angel that can sing a ballad to your heart or belt out Blues reminiscent of Janis Joplin! She started out in Alabama before making her way North to New York City.  Early influences in Classical music were with both her parents who were involved in the classical scene. Laura aquired a refined taste early on. Her strong spirit and exceptional talent saw her branching out  as she was influenced by Zepplin and intelligent rock with deep meaning. You can often find her and her band  at Rockwood, Sidewalk Cafe, Living Room and many other venues on the LES and thoughout Manhattan!

Fred Gillen, Jr  Folk Rock 
Fred Gillen is a Singer Songwriter from upstate, NY who performs various New York venues and has performed throughout the country.  His songs are distinct with a tinge of Dylan and poetic verse to take you on his travels and experiences.  He combines ballads and an early folk sound with blues and a bit of rock to produce beautiful art. His voice is immediately powerful yet compassionate.  Fred utilizes both electric and acoustic guitars depending on the song and even stretches to the experimental beating on a sheet of copper and rapping through a megaphone for his 'Dinosaur bones by the Side of the Road'.  Mr. Gillen is an artist and musician that I look forward to experiencing again!  We saw him at Peekskill Coffee with Eric Puente on drums and it was exquisite!
