DeKALB COUNTY, Ala. — Local artist Levi Abney will debut his very first single this August.
Abney is a native of Louisiana, but after Hurricane Katrina, he, like many others, found himself looking for a new place to put down his roots.
A trip up Interstate 59 brought his family through Fort Payne, Ala., where a need for fuel caused them to stop long enough to take in the beautiful mountain views. After that, Abney and his family would call Lookout Mountain home.
Abney is a self-taught singer-songwriter who began his musical journey at age 15. It was ten years later that he wrote his first song. In 2015, Abney's father gave him his first guitar with just one string attached. It only took a few months for Abney to get the hang of the instrument.
Now after a great deal of encouragement, Abney is pursuing his music dreams.
You can visit his website at LeviAbneyMusic.com or hear him on his YouTube channel.
Abney will debut his new single at Decks & Docks in Leesburg, Ala. on August 24 at 8pm.
