Robbie Rapids is a singer and guitarist hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Born in 1978, he began making music at the age of 16 and has, over the years, mastered his craft by playing in several music projects. Since the age of 16, Atlanta-based artist Robbie Rapids has performed publicly on numerous occasions under various band names, ranging from playing guitar in a high school jazz band to writing original songs. He is best known for fronting a Tom Petty tribute because of the similarity of his voice and musical taste; now he is releasing his own songs.
Robbie Rapids style of music can be described as Jangly Power Pop Rock. He’s the creative songwriter and lyricist who teamed up with prolific top session musician/producer David Levene (Laghonia) to create a collection that pulls from 4 decades of rock influence (the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s). Their similarity in music taste among artists such as David Bowie, Ian Hunter, Gin Blossoms, The Who, Oasis, Stone Temple Pilots, Remembrants, The Beatles, and Tom Petty, and professionalism, have created true musical works of art. David Levene’s musical journey began at age 16 when he traveled to Peru. It was there in 1968 that he joined the legendary psychedelic rock band “Laghonia.”
Laghonia is considered by most music experts as one of the best psychedelic rock bands to emerge from South America, which is why it was mentioned in Rolling Stone Magazine as among the top rock bands to emerge from that part of the continent. In February 2005, Eclipse magazine (Germany’s version of Rolling Stone magazine) interviewed David Levene after their re-release of CD and vinyl versions of their albums on the German label “World in Sound.” Laghonia’s music is still being played on commercials in England. After two records and touring to support the albums, a young David Levene left the group to return to the US, where he studied recording technology under Dennis Hetzendorfer in the legendary Criteria recording studio, pursued his music career, and gained more experience as a session player and producer. In 1996, David settled in Atlanta, where he is now the owner of Big Sound Productions ATL. In 2019, he was the recipient of an award for his music and production work.
