Independent/Barry Gibb - United States
Billboard Magazine's focus on the South Florida Recording scene referred to Lee Levin as "the city's most in demand drummer". Since graduating the University of Miami in 1989, Lee has played on more than 1000 recordings for a variety of artists including Barbra Streisand, Backstreet Boys, Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Nelly Furtado, Clay Aiken, Christina Aquilera, Michael Bolton, Sarah Silverman, Meat Loaf, Ace Young, Teddy Geiger, Ricardo Arjona, Alejandro Sanz, Juan Luis Guerra, Enrique Iglesias, Julio Iglesias, Ricky Martin, Eros Ramazzotti, Shakira and many others. He has toured/performed with Ricky Martin, Julio Iglesias, Bee Gees, and Jon Secada. Lee has also written and/or recorded commercials for Pantene, Bellsouth, Florida Lottery, McDonalds, and Domino's Pizza. His compositions have been heard on NBC's Friends, Saturday Night Live, Dateline, America's Next Top Model and TMZ. In addition, Lee has worked on many educational books, videos and CD's for Alfred Publications including one he has written for the Ultimate Beginner Tech Start Series entitled “Drum Programming Basics”. Recent projects include new CD’s for Nelly Furtado, Chris Cornell/Timbaland, Marc Anthony, Teddy Geiger, Olivia Newton-John, Thalia, Paulina Rubio, and the World Premier of the Elvis Costello/Twyla Tharp Ballet, “Nightspot”.
A natural transition toward production landed Levin, and partners Dan Warner and Tommy Torres, with a Latin Grammy nomination for Record of the Year in 2006 for Ricardo Arjona’s “Adentro”. He also received a Best Engineered nomination in 2007. In 2008, the same team co-produced “Tarde o Temprano” for Tommy Torres, which was nominated in both the American and Latin Grammys. They also co-produced Ednita Nazario's "Por Ti" album (certified gold), which was nominated for a Grammy and won a Latin Billboard Award, as well as her release "Appasionata". In addition to co-producing a recent #1 song for Luis Fonsi, Levin has also produced for Ricardo Arjona, Tommy Torres, Gisselle, and Perry Joslin.
