Artist Biography Guitarist, Composer, Teacher and Seasoned performer, Udi Levy had an active musical life back in his native country of Israel. He started playing with a hard rock band in 1994 and had huge success with the local scene and some recognition in Eastern European countries. He also performed as a sideman with local artists and managed to build a reputation in the rock and the jazz scene as well.
But as an ambitious and motivated artist, he always strives to reach a higher level and therefore collaborated with EL Productions to start work on his own original smooth jazz project. Knowing that the smooth jazz scene is much more developed in Canada and America, Udi moved to Vancouver. Udi began working with Horizon Management in New York from 2003-2005 and began playing various shows in Canada. A short time later, Quinn record label in St. Louis showed interest in releasing Udi’s music. Unfortunately, Quinn was not the right “home” for Udi’s music.
Udi relocated to New York and found that audiences truly appreciated his compositions and playing style. He quickly began a heavy performance schedule as a sideman with several artists in clubs while continuing to work on his first solo smooth jazz project. You can hear Udi’s single “As simple as that”
on the top radio stations throughout the US , promoted by ASL Music Media.
