I really don’t know much about Isle Of Wight, even though its one of the most popular English islands around. I only know of it due to the long-standing British music festival that occurs there every year. But I’ve come to learn that I’m in love with this singer songwriter, Swan Levitt, who hails from the island. He recently released a deeply affecting folk song named Alive from his highly anticipated debut EP, and it’s quite the intimately moving piece. Alive’s heartfelt lyrics detail an event involving a close friend, and the fast rising artist’s grainy voice seems ready to crack under the weight of his anguished emotions. The acoustic-folk ballad is beautifully heartbreaking, to say the least.  It builds slowly, swells gently, with lush strings and poignant fervency. Speaking on Alive, Swan said; “Alive is a song about loss. It’s primarily about a close friend who battled with cystic fibrosis. However, it has wider meaning. Family, friends, memories (good and bad). I think most people can relate to some kind of trauma, so ‘Alive’ should resonate with them”. Pre-order Swan Levitt’s self-titled debut EP, here.

Singer songwriter Swan Levitt arrives out of the Isle Of Wight in the UK to give us a moving combination of acoustic folk and softly reverberating soul on Alive, his exquisitely heart rending debut ballad. This stripped down beauty tugs hard at the heartstrings with steely guitar and Swan Levitt’s melancholic vocals. Swan Levitt utilizes his own personal struggles and his passion for science to create music that is “acoustic at heart, yet interwoven with subtle electronic atmospheres”. Though Alive is only his first single, Swan Levitt is already in the studio recording his debut album with up and coming production duo Boe Weaver. Alive is out now via Organ Records.
