There’s Magic In The Music: Alison Faith Levy’s Big Time Tot Rock

Aug 12, 2014

One of the other dads bends down to hear my daughter over the
band’s acoustic euphony. She blurts out her excitement, her phone chord
curls bouncing in time with the beat.

“{{I have magic in
my hands and I can touch the walls and turn them different colors but
ACTually the magic is in my WHOLE body and if I want to I can BLAST it
all out but there will always be moooore!}}”

SF Classical Voice digs into the songwriting process with Alison

June 22, 2014 - 10:25am -- Alison

This is how it often starts. In the early morning hours kindie rock
favorite Alison Faith Levy wakes up with a tune in her head. She throws
off the covers, hubby still pulling zzzz's, runs into her San
Francisco living room, and furiously writes down some lyrics and chords.
Then the creative process grinds to a halt temporarily while she
readies her family for the day, often singing that morning's tune into
her smartphone while driving her son to school.

This Sunday, the place to be with your preschooler will be the Contemporary Jewish Museum. Singer-songwriter Alison Faith Levy and her Big Time Tot Rock band will be doing three shows, headlining the Yerba Buena Family Day Festival.

production, which had rock critic Greil Marcus invoking Phil Spector’s
“Wall of Sound.”

The Big Time Tot Rock band played to our biggest crowd yet - 650 rockin' kids and families at the Mountain View Library. Laurie Peck, the librarian "impresario" who organized the show, had these kind words:
