Passion never dies. It grows
Stay Hungry and Strong
Jordan Bauer otherwise known as Levvi, is a 2nd generation Canadian coming from German, Swazi, and Dutch roots. He was born in a small country in Southern Africa called Eswatini. From there his father from Canada came and brought him and his mother to Canada. After living in Canada for 2 years Levvi and his family moved to Southeast Asia for most of his childhood, specifically Korea and the Philippines. Once Levvi turned 15 he moved to Chilliwack for a year with his grandmother and found himself back in Vancouver to stay the following year. Levvi began making music at age 17 and released his first project “Puddles Drip” on his 19th birthday, it gained traction in his local neighbourhood, North Vancouver. Levvi quickly found himself networking with other artists hopping in and out of multiple collectives eventually finding himself connecting with now long-time collaborator Phil Phanatic. With Phil on the production and Levvi on the lyrics and vocals they dropped their first collaborative EP titled “Mayhem’s Dove”. The project did very well for a first project garnering a total 41,000 streams to date. No money was spent on promotion so the only thing that drove these numbers was the quality of the music alone. This was when Levvi decided to take things seriously and pursue his career as an artist. Continuing to drop music Levvi found himself creating more buzz with his singles “Sorry not Sorry” and “The Wave”. At the end of 2020 Kyle Bhawan and Emmerson Ettore (hosts on Low-Key and Vancouver Coop Radio) noted Levvi as the artist to watch out for in Vancouver in 2021. Levvi did not disappoint. After going quiet for a short period in May of 2021 Levvi released the single “Fake Kings” with Phil Phanatic gaining 10,000 monthly Spotify listeners and another 22,000 streams under his belt. This put Levvi within the top 15 hip hop and r&b artists in Vancouver with only a year and a half of being in the industry. Impressive considering he is an independent act. Soon after he proceeded to drop his latest single “7 am” with a stunning music video, making a point to collaborate with local brands and establishments. The song topped Levvi’s charts as his most streamed single with 35,000 streams in 2 months. Quite the promising career for an artist with such little experience and funding behind his brand, Levvi has yet to offer the best of his creative package.
