About Allen Levi
Since 1996, when...
Allen Levi left thirteen years of law practice to pursue music full time, he has presented thought provoking programs for hundreds of thousands of people across the U.S.
He has played for audiences of all descriptions, sharing a colorful and sometimes whimsical perspective on life through songs that celebrate the small moments of everyday experience. His music offers a reflective and unhurried consideration of our accidental roads, our happy lightenings, our open windows, the people in our towns, the movement of our moments, the games we play and the things we are leaving behind.
Allen grew up in Columbus, Georgia, where he worked for 10 very full-time years at law practice before taking a two-year sabbatical, in the early 1990’s, to receive a masters degree in English literature from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. He returned to three years of part-time law practice before venturing into the life of singer/songwriter. Encouraged by many in his community Allen was elected and served as Probate Judge for Harris County from 2014 to 2016. He presently lives in Hamilton, Georgia.
When not traveling, writing, or recording, he enjoys reading, spending time with family and friends, leading the "front porch gang" and greeting Harris County high school students at 7 am every morning. Tending his bee hives and working around the acreage where he lives brings joy to his soul!
Allen has 20 CD’s of original material and hundreds of unrecorded songs to his credit. He authored Oliviatown, a children’s’ book inspired by his song of the same title. In honor of his brother Gary's life Allen recently wrote a tender memoir entitled The Last Sweet Mile. In addition to his work as a singer/songwriter, Allen is a sought after speaker.
He loves his Lord, his family, children, friends, dogs, songbirds, and work.
