About Adam Levy, DIY360 Series organizer:
The art of songwriting continues to find home in the music of Adam Levy. Known best for his pop-rock craftsmanship that’s guided The Honeydogs through 10 acclaimed releases, film and TV placements like “Sex in the City,” and more recently, for the whimsical kids’ rock band Bunny Clogs, Levy is now embarking on two new projects, AND THE PROFESSORS and Liminal Phase. With a string quartet, members of the Heiruspecs, Mystery Palace, and Holly Munoz from Aviette, and by combining old and new sounds with electronic and acoustic instrumentation, AND THE PROFESSORS creates fragmented chamber pop songs about love. Liminal Phase (with its unique instrumentation of bassoon, oboe, guitar, cello, and a DJ) pushes the outer limits of jazz, rock, electronica, avant garde and West African music. Adam also teaches songwriting, rock ensemble, popular music history, and audio production and mentors students at the Institute of Production and Recording and the MacPhail School of Music. For fun Adam heads up the ambitious 9 piece soul cover band, Hookers & Blow.
