THE BAND

Adam Levy

Adam is a veteran of the Minnesota rock scene, best known for leading up alt-rock band The Honeydogs. As a prolific songwriter and producer, he has worked across many genres and performed around the world. The Spanish Indiana Rock Label is releasing a recording from his recent tour of Spain with The Brass Buttons. In 2012, Adam lost his son Daniel to suicide. The tragedy left him creatively incapacitated, but gradually he started writing songs again. The result was his first solo outing Naubinway. Grammy winner Joe Henry called the album “love in action — a courageous and generous offering, where ghosts abound, facing the quiet inevitable that forever walks with us. It’s a record with soul and deep compassion. It is a beautiful and remarkable piece of work.”

Besides writing, recording and performing music, Adam is a social activist and educator, teaching songwriting to inmates in Minnesota prisons.

Savannah Smith

Savannah needs only needs thirty seconds to win you over. Savannah’s vocal prowess, and her absolute mastery of crafting raw and gritty emotion into beautiful melodies, defines her from the crowd in moments. She has worked with such acts as Trampled by Turtles, William Elliot Whitmore and Laura Stevenson. In 2019, Savannah released her debut full-length album, Leo. The follow-up to her EP Leaving Eau Claire, it was written in a house built by her great-grandfather and was recorded and produced Minneapolis’ Brett Bullion (Low, Halloween Alaska, Bad Bad Hats).

 

When not making music, Savannah does leatherwork and resells vintage wear.
