The Words of the Wise EP Release Party featured 3-Time JUNO Award Winner Exco Levi up close and personal with Denise Jones (100.7 CHIN FM “Talk To Me”) at Beeleny’s Restaurant & Lounge (4,000 Steeles Ave. W.) on Sunday May 18th from 8pm – 10:30 pm. Exco Levi is the first recipient in the Reggae Recording of the Year Category to receive a JUNO Award for three consecutive years, receiving his third award at the 2014 JUNO Award Gala in Winnipeg, Manitoba for his single “Strive” featuring Kabaka Pyramid on March 29th. Exco previously won JUNOS for singles “Storms of Life” in 2013 and the controversial “Bleaching Shop” in 2012.
The event was well attended as the audience wined and dined inside Beelenys (the old Epiphany’s) while taking in Exco going into detail about the songs on his new EP in a shared mic sitdown with water and wine intimate showcase conversation with Ms. Jones, while a DJ played tracks in between. Exco also performed a few of his songs to the delight of the fans inside Beelenys, many of who were Artists, Radio personalities, Print and Social Network journalists, writers and photographers.
Congratulations to Exco – a great Artist who really did deserve to win three consecutive JUNO’s. This is Exco Levi’s time, and he is a very young and growing Artist with the best attitude a Reggae Artist can have. This attitude will take him far in the business, but more than anything else, his great lyrical flow and supreme writing skill is what will take Exco furthest.
The best of Exco Levi is still to come, and like his thousands of fans, I too can hardly wait to hear what’s next. Sticky on next year’s JUNO competitors – because judging from the way things seem for Exco right now, the only way to go is ‘up’, and our other scores of fine Canadian Artists have got their work cut out for them! Exco – just keep doing what you’re doing and “Everything’s Gonna Be Allright”!
