Producer Notes:

Levi Weaver's music is not safe for the whole family - which is one reason why I love it.  It's raw, honest, dark, hopeful, and haunting.  He doesn't like to identify himself with "Christian music" (I don't blame him), yet he is a genuine Believer who is working out his doubts, struggles, hurt, and hope through his songs.  It's this kind of avante garde personality that led he and his wife to sell all their posessions and live full time on the road in a Winnebago with two young children for a full year.  If you like interesting, thought-provoking, emotionally-moving music from a Christian worldview (yet void of Christian cliche), then Levi Weaver is a guy you should know.  I hope this conversation is a great entry point for you.  We're also excited to share three UTR debut artists this week, thanks to your requests: Besides Daniel, Brettan Cox, and Hannah Beck.  (Dave)
