Doug Levitt (from the album Edge of Everywhere available as a self-release) (by Bryant Liggett)
Logging 120 miles on a bus ride would be misery for some folks. Musician Doug Levitt did 1,000 times that much, travels that resulted in his debut Edge of Everywhere. It’s a solid way to see the country, a solid way to tour and a solid way to bang out a record of road Folk and Roots Gospel, a sure-fire way to get to the heart of America and write an Americana record. The result is a genuine vision of the USA.
Doug Levitt’s lets you know how he’s feeling with no fear, opening Edge of Everywhere with the claim that he ‘woke up on the wrong side of myself’ in “Cold Comfort”. It begins the cycle of dumping out feelings for all to dig into. There’s a Folky Blues feel with a hint of Gospel in “L.A. River” and that salvation vibe rolls across “40 West” as Leavitt recalls a jaunt with the military to see more of this world. “Run it All Back” has a Leonard Cohen vibe, “Disaster Can Wait” is a closing time, last call cut, and “Turn Myself In” is a rich and vivid tale of making a fast buck.
Edge of Everywhere is a storyteller’s album, and Doug Levitt tells a tale with a wealth of diverse experience. He’s a military person or criminal, a country criss-crosser and broken-down parent, plus he’s put the everyday experience of the aforementioned into song. With little dash and no need for bells and whistles, Doug Levitt gives us real perspective via real music. (by Bryant Liggett)
