Jan 17, 2020

Eli Lev, a return guest to the podcast, just released the 3rd in a 4 album project. He’ll wrap the project up with that 4th album in the later part of 2020. He’s incredibly inspirational, having done so much in the short span of his music career. He’s all about intentions. And I think he found love recently. You’ll hear more about that in our conversation.

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.

As I recorded the podcast in December, I asked Eli what he was looking forward to in the New Year. Eli’s looking forward to talking about our climate, and what he sees as the big challenge of 2020. I think he feels that it’s now or never time. And he has what I consider to be a healthy attitude about the issue. I support him and our beautiful planet.
