SongVault Artist Profile
Arizona, United States
Contemporary Classical / Smooth Jazz
Composer/Violinist Jonathan Levingston an award winning Artist, has written and arranged music from Hip Hop to Classical. He released his Freshman CD, "And What Would You Like Me To Play?" in February 2008. All of the music on the CD was written, arranged and mastered by Jonathan who continues to amaze audiences since its release and gives clear insight into the man, his passion for music and creative genius. His original works present a Classical fusion of genres. Though we have tried to choose the best genres available to describe Jonathanís music, it doesn't fit neatly into one genre, but to the listener it is found to be magnificently created masterpieces presenting the nuance of jazz, romance and dramatic phrasing supported strongly by his classical training. Jonathan is most pleased to have the opportunity to work with Brian Lockard, the pianist on the CD. He is an award winning artist whose articulation and fluent playing style accentuates Jonathan's narrative writing style.
Take a listen to Jonathan's Classical selections listed on songvault. Every song on the CD is distinctively written and you are sure to enjoy them regardless of your preferred genre.
Beginning classical Suzuki violin training at age 7 developed his extraordinary ability and he has continued to excel as a composer and performer. Currently, he is teaching and writing his next album but working hard to get exposure and introduce his music to the world. Stage performance puts him in his element so he is always looking for a performance opportunity.
