ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The title of Levi Petree's debut album, 'It’s Country' , said with a wink and tongue planted firmly in cheek, was (verbatim) the response given by a friend when asked to describe her thoughts on Levi’s first public performance. It was always meant for a laugh, but whether people were thrown by the occasional twang in Levi’s voice, or the presence of guitars on a classic structure, the country comparison started to happen more and more. Rolling his eyes at what he felt was a generalization, Levi began to embrace the description “it’s country” as a smartass’ act of defiance, an inside joke that maybe this is just what people called rock ’n’ roll nowadays.

The songs on 'It’s Country' showcase a range of styles and influences. Yes, there’s a little Americana thrown in on tracks like the hopeful “Fight On” and humorous story song “The Habanero Do-Si-Do,” but you’ve also got barn-burning rave-ups (“The Rapture,” “Eyes So Blue”), an ode to Morrissey and 50s pop (“I Know You’re Gonna Haunt Me”), a Beatles-esque sing-a-long (“Rockaway”), an early-Elvis era ballad (“Lover’s Cove”) and the snarl of the Sex Pistols (“Do What You Want”). The closest the album ever comes to truly tapping into its country namesake is the song “What’s It Gonna Take?,” an emotionally charged, Springsteen-esque response to a movie theater shooting in Levi’s hometown of Lafayette in July 2015.
