Levi Moore, is a country singer/songwriter out of Savannah, GA. He writes what he feels and sings from the heart, taking notes from country legends like Alan Jackson and Waylon Jennings, but also influenced early on by the great songwriters of lore, like Gordon Lightfoot and Jim Croce.
While having always craved the presence of music, he began creating music late, teaching himself to play guitar in the second half of my five-year college career, using music as a balance between football practice and midterm exams. Having been a storyteller and writer since elementary school, songwriting was a natural progression.
After 3 years, he left the oilfield to become a full-time musician, moving to Savannah, GA and plunging headlong into the coastal fray. After having been nominated for Male Vocalist of The Year in Modern Country at the 2017 Josie Music Awards, He is diligently working at my craft, gigging throughout the week, writing more than ever, and preparing to cut and release my first album this winter.

Q&A with Natalie Jean and Levi Moore
"A good duet, in our modern age, is a rare thing. There are plenty of features, guest verses and co-writes, and the cameo drop-in is a dime a dozen. The number of genuine duets, where vocalists share verses and tell a story together in the space of a song, is very small. If your optimism fails you, as you wonder whether there are enough great acts to keep hit radio stocked with worthy pop music duets, it’s reassuring to find that Natalie Jean and Levi Moore have a first-rate single to carry us through the next few months, all by itself."
“The set-up of one voice for the first verse and another for the second is not all that common in modern music. It works best when there’s a noticeable contrast, a clear cut set of differences that lay out the two leading characters and their sides of the story or their input. Levi Moore’s voice adds a gorgeous new dynamic to an already enjoyable and calming piece of music and writing. The two artists together offer so much passion and skill that their performances are mesmerising. The detail throughout this entire release is beautiful, it’s a carefully crafted single that has been so well captured that you can listen on repeat and not get tired of the unfolding mightiness and magic. – Stereo Stickman”
"Musically, certainly no complaints…I think “The Letting Go” has plenty of charm and appeal in the subtle way the music works between what sounds like muted acoustic strings and bold piano notes. It’s a smooth glide from verse to chorus, expanding the sound in the atmosphere with a warm glow, adding-in more elements to the background to wrap the listener up tight in the experience."
These two artists managed to do something incredible: not only did they allow their similarities to complement one another in perfect synergy, but they also managed to let their differences collide beautifully, creating a very special contrast of different, yet affine background.
“The song binds a beautiful tale of unforgettable love and the strength it bores into the mind and soul of a human body. This track flows over a logical explanation of feelings and relationship which is sure to inspire many young hearts. The audio quality of the song is quite high with keen attention given to making the song enjoyable for the audience.” - Natalie Parker
"Natalie’s vocal performance is impeccable. She is able to make clever use of the free space and atmosphere that the background instrumentation provides. Levi Moore fits perfectly into the song’s theme of moving ahead may mean letting some things go."
"Pour en revenir au duo The Letting Go, disons que Natalie Jean et Levi Moore sont deux artistes très prometteurs qui ont su tirer le meilleur de leur empreinte vocale respective pour créer un duo à la fois contrasté et synergique. On ressent dans le chant de l’un et de l’autre une"
compréhension certaine de plusieurs styles de musique comme la country, la pop et le blues. Les paroles sont inspirantes et les performances vocales notables. Dès les premières notes l’auditeur sait que le titre va se situer dans le champ des regrets, du passé, du fugace et de la vanité de la vie, de l’amour et de toutes ces choses mortelles et non immuables. D’où un piano ultra-mélancolique.
“The Letting Go” is a love song about having to let go of the past so you can move forward. As Natalie repeats the last words of her verse the instrumentals back off leaving only the piano playing lulling chords as we transition into the chorus and both Natalie and Levi enter singing, “The Letting go/The Letting go/The Letting go/Oh, oh, oh/The Letting go,” in lush harmony as their distinct voices come together creating a powerful, memorable moment in the song. Moving forward, Levi takes the lead on the next verse giving his robust, country voice the spotlight."
"Firstly there are the vocals, two exquisite and contrasting voices both getting their moment to shine, Jean tugging at heart strings with a sweet but confident allure, Moore revelling in a rawer baritone and both coming together to make a compelling chorus as their tones and textures mix beautifully. But the songs is about much more than those voices, great as they are. It takes its time to get moving but gradually builds its musical layers as a platform, building from plaintive piano and minimal guitar rhythms to add beats and additional sonic motifs through a slow and deft build up of additional instruments."
"For her latest track Natalie Jean teamed up with Levi Moore, and it may be the best duet since Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue in Where The Wild Roses Grow. Levi Moore’s gruff yet soulful vocal style is what really made this track for me. There’s such a contrast between Jean’s beautifully empowering, yet sweetly romantic vocals and Levi’s loveable drawl, that you can’t help but get caught up in the synergy that the two have created."
"The bridge is simply wonderful. It is shared between the two talented vocalists and is stunning. The final chorus ties the song together, it is incredibly moving, deep and heartfelt. Not to mention how catchy it is! There is a whisper at the very end, a lovely touch of a delicate ending to a
"Natalie Jean’s seasoned, award-winning voice paired with Levi Moore’s country-infused, oil field weathered personality is a powerful combination which results in a strong song that is on par with other chart topping ballads that have preceded this release."
