About Eli Lev
Global citizen and neo-folk singer Eli Lev is making the world a smaller place, one song at a time. Eli pens hymns for everyday enlightenment—songs that resonate because they’re heartfelt, earthy, and offer wisdom culled from self-discovery.
His latest album, Way Out West, has been featured on CBS Radio, Buzz Feed, and Paste Magazine for its blend of country, folk, Americana, soul, and pop, while being free from any specific tradition. In performance, his infectious musicality, commitment to deep grooves, and playful charisma foster an immersive experience for the audience that moves bodies and opens hearts.
“The most meaningful thing for me is being able to express what I always felt about humanity through my music. I want to bring people in, make them feel special, and break down the walls that keep us apart.”
About Ami Yares
The MUSIC hails from the east & west, rooted in the sounds of a pastoral upbringing in the sprawling suburbs of the Garden State juxtaposed against the sounds, stories, & struggles of the seaside city of Jaffa.
The MUSICIAN simply wants to move you with music. Ami (pronounced AH-mee) has been described as “a cross between Randy Newman and David Broza. He has traveled all over the world and spent a significant amount of time using music to build peace and promote social change. Ami’s performances capture your body, heart and mind. It’s old music; it’s new music. It’s the music. Come inside for a listen.
The EDUCATOR uses music as a lens to understand society, culture and ultimately, ourselves. Let’s move our minds as much as we move our bodies to music. Inroads to empathy and mutual understanding form through the sharing of song and rhythm. It is not only a passion to Ami but an obligation to embolden music in powerful and transformative educational experiences.
About Jackson Howard
Relaxed, raw, and steeped in classic acoustic troubadours like James Taylor and Jim Croce, Jackson Howard plays folkified indie rock with as much attention to detail in the fingerstyle guitar as in the lyrics. A recent transplant to Philadelphia, Jackson has performed at numerous venues around Philadelphia and has toured extensively, performing in 18 U.S. States, Canada, Iceland, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
After completing a PhD in Exercise Physiology and spending 2.5 years conducting research on behavioral treatment for obesity, Jackson made the decision to leave academia and concentrate on music full time. This major shift in life trajectory invited a unique perspective that colors his songs.
In 2017, Jackson released “Just For the Mystery”,recorded at Dark Horse Studios in Franklin, TN. The album has received radio play on over 100 stations across the U.S., and has been licensed by MTV, E!, Discovery, and Netflix for use in their programming.
