Petero WHO's here with us in Studio forty-nine Today Levi thank you for joining us Royal Pleasure and Levi your blues are very distinct in a really enjoyed Running through this album and just getting to know a little more of what it is. You're putting out and for you understand. This album is very sentimental. Tell me why I think. Think of the reason why it's Or not I think the reason. Why is sentimental because I had to we do a lot of growing Not just in my guitar playing but mainly just in general I had to grow ahead to learn something I had to had to humble myself You know had to had to face. You know prideful version of myself and strike them down and I had to kind of go back and really re evaluate evaluate things that I've done things that I've said and Just Kinda face myself and you know Kinda just dig a little. Oh deep in not just with the lyrics also with my playing and This didn't happen just like overnight. You know I did a lot of thinking and meditating You know within the past four or five years and it was an easy because so you know I'm a prideful person. I mean I I mean my my biggest enemy is myself and having to deal with that. I think it was one of the toughest things and it's still is because I have no where near perfect and I think that's really cool because it gives me a lot of room to have have more productive creativity in the future. Well it takes a strong person to admit in face this to and through the music MM is definitely a place. A lot of times people say go to heal or understand more And so you know what leave i. Let's give them some of this music. We have good man ready to roll anything you want to share about that. It's just about me one of my personal experiences. ooh Here we go. The Levi Petero ban. This is good man UH Okay wake up call impose back uh back And what this soon Gani survivor. Ah No It's just Sam and Dan this is what Levi. Petero is up to these days. If you'd like to chat with him go ahead and dial in one eight hundred nine nine six two four eight. This is good man off the album. mm-hmm self titled Album Levi. Petero ban. Join US right now. One eight hundred nine nine six two eight four eight is the number wiz Kid you it down for good as miss you too close to give Back in UH sabotage He Ed man from the Levi potato is here with us. You just heard good men Levi. That is a fun song in your voice. Your Voice Voice is really come on strong in that one In anything you want to share about just putting that one together I think of when I wrote this song I remember writing that Song. Probably probably at one of the lowest like kind of points not in my life but like within one of the years I was really Kinda struggling with certain adversities and you know Ambiguous anxieties and the only way I knew how to deal with that was Through some kind of substance abuse and I I enjoy talking about it. You know I always think that's healthy because if you can't talk about it it's Kinda something that's always going to be a problem so I remember writing this song and I remember feeling like I remember thinking back on a lot of mistakes that I've made and Just like promises. I've failed to keep now with just like you know like my family or you know a certain relationships but mainly with myself it was just Kinda like this some this Kind of battle inside of me and I never understood you know when growing up it was always the outside side looking in in when he kinda sensitive like the inside looking out the perspective on on those conditions are just really dramatic. Because is you never understand what each side looks like until you've actually been there and so that's what I wrote this about. It was just me being on the inside inside looking out instead of always looking from the outside in and those internal problems until you're actually internally in there so that's kind of like what I wrote this about and so like I said my own personal experience in some it's so interesting mm-hmm How introspection can turn into a blue song? And I think that's something that's so relatable just about this genre because it it is a pouring of emotions in some of our favorite blue songs are about somebody who's just saying like it is and you know no sugar coating Life gets hard. I'm GonNa tell you a little bit about it just to get by you know so I mean that's something that I know. A lot of people really enjoy about the blues is is. It's so human full of emotions In just letting you know too that there are other people out there who are thinking of this or either battling attlee met same battle as you and I it's it's interesting why people do turn to the blues. And of course it's connections how deep its roots roots go in influencing other genres and you know if we take that route of the blues going into rock and roll you know that's a fun journey to But but you can journey with us too we have Levi Petero here with us and he is sharing his new album.

I think it was about ten years ago. Got To meet you. Say Hello but my question to you is Who has like the greats like Eric Clapton? Dan Buddy Guy. Have they expired. You and in what way I think one of the grades grades. That really inspired me was Was Probably Stevie Ray Vaughan Just the now only because has of his playing but his his his life his life changing event. You know he He was able to conquer certain things things about himself. That almost seemed impossible and at the time when he was already successful you know. And that just encouraged encouraged me and inspired me to be as strong as I could and watching him play. It was just something so amazing. And you know after he was he conquered those certain. You know things about himself. It was no longer something that was artificial. But it was all straight organic you know after he the recovered from alcoholism and all this substance abuse and it was just very encouraging and hopefully one day. You know I'll I'll be able to like AAC be as good as that you know but He's one of the biggest. Inspirations like when it comes to guitar playing in Blues Artists With Stevie Ray Vaughan on and when it comes to guitar plane Not only him but You know advocating. BB King Freddie King.

I took a job as a torn musician. I took a job a I. I only worked for about maybe like six to seven months bowl ready after the first month I told myself. Oh God I gotta get Outta here I got I got I got I gotta go back to music. But you know touring isn't really all could out to what it's supposed to be you know it's a lot of struggling Very few can do it and Those who can do it. You know. It's a very long climb to you.

He said some things that really encouraged me and then waiting for something like that got to come from him and when he told me all these things it just kinda like men a really needed that and then I come home after the Blues Cruise. You know the big goal like almost like the dream you know. I've always had just like back to reality. I gotta go back to work. I gotta go go work some hours back to my nine to five and I remember just thinking man I I can do this I can. I can just pursue music as much as I want and it was cool writing this because then I thought man but there's some people who have nowhere to go you know like a lot of people don't really have things like they have the opportunity unity like to to do something else but you know and I thought man. That's that hurts. You know that hits home and I had to read a blue song about it. I was like I can't quit if I didn't have music I couldn't quit. I couldn't quit my job. I just have to see where this takes me and I wrote a Blues Blue Song about it and that's kind of the emotion captured with the guitar plane was just Kinda like hurt and just long suffering and just waiting for something happen.

Eight hundred nine nine six two eight four eight is the number you tell all stories well Levi especially when you are doing it through the music Tells the story behind the Song Warrior. Oh Man Oh Jeez. Jeez I remember writing this and thinking man I am not one to be in some kind of a movement you know says but I support those who you do. I just remember thinking like they can't do what I do and I can't do it. They do but you know what they do is good food and I couldn't do it but man when I see it it's encouraging it's empowering it allows me to move and do something about it the way I know how to do something about it and and that's I have a voice you know and when I wrote this song warrior I remember I forgot who it was it was a it was a thing on TV. Not that I saw that happen. I'm not going to be specific about it but I remember seeing this individual just kind of stand. You know this This Native man bandstand totally piece and nowhere near you know no no hatred in his in his heart but he he was he was at peace and he wanted to to do something and just kind of spread this kind of this joy in this love that he had ad and you know when I look back on who we are. We're you know it's like I don't like to think of us as you know these the wet you know. Something stereotypical recall about us. I like to think of us as we were very spiritual and peaceful people and you know we knew the land and it was just and we had all these things that we had to stay away from and you know standing strong in you know not being moved what kind of planet into the soil and you know it just all came together and I remember writing this and remembering that you know. I don't want to be you know I don't want to be conformed or you know misguided by anything if I if I go out on into this music industry I don't WanNa feel like I'm pressured pressured or I have to feel like I have to do something just to be accepted along certain things and I remember I. I like being who I am. I like knowing what I do is is good and I wouldn't change anything about it and I remember writing this song and I think I'll take take my hand. This is this is crazy. I don't know I don't know what to say but I was just remembering like man if I write something about this. Have to be prepared to talk about it. I sometimes times I feel like I don't really like talking about stuff like the have because you know what it talks about is just being being a warrior you know being in my own on my own definition is like how to be you know with me had to be native. I guess and it doesn't have to involve certain you know things is just for me. This is what it meant and I thought man I have to talk about this but you know later on down the road. You know. I'll maybe I'll be able to really talk about it but you know if you listen to it. It's kind of subjective too to whatever it is you want it to mean to you and I remember writing this and I thought man this. I've never felt comforted after it comforted after something like this. Listen I tried to capture that same emotion at the end with the guitars and stuff like that so well let's go ahead and here. This is warrior by the Levi Potato Band Radio on native America calling.

I can make up for what I was saying earlier earlier. This song. I think I was kind of nervous because When I was writing this I remember feeling like you?

You know I want like history to be brought back to life and all of those things and as a native eight of American. That's basically kind of all we want.
