Guitarist Adam Levy on the Income Opportunities of Licensing Deals

Adam Levy is best known for his work as guitarist and songwriter with Norah Jones’ band The Handsome Family. In addition to his work with Jones, Levy is also a solo artist. His album, Washing Day, was released in 2007. He can be heard on Tracy Chapman’s New Beginning (that’s Levy’s laid-back blues solo on “Give Me One Reason”), Amos Lee’s eponymous Blue Note debut (featured on the single, “Arms of a Woman”), Sex Mob’s Din of Inequity, Ani DiFranco’s Which Side Are You On?, and Anaïs Mitchell’s Young Man in America. He has performed onstage with all of these artists—as well as with Rosanne Cash, Lisa Loeb, Dan Hicks, Darol Anger, Joey Baron, and many others. Levy is also well-known as a writer and journalist, with articles appearing regularly in the pages of Guitar Player and Acoustic Guitarmagazines. And he has earned a reputation as an esteemed educator. He is the author of Jazz Guitar Sight-Reading (book) and Play the Right Stuff (book & DVD), and has led many workshops and masterclasses all across the U.S. and internationally. Several cities have been home to Levy over the years, including New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans. He currently lives in Los Angeles.
