Singer-songwriter Eli Lev has a new music video, and it's the most fun music fans will have all week. Watch Lev's utterly heartwarming video for "Making Space" now by playing the video above, then download this addictive song on iTunes and head out to see this promising artist on tour throughout the remainder of 2018.
"Making Space" comes from Lev's latest EP entitled All Roads East. The title seems counterintuitive since the last thing Lev is doing in the video is making any space; instead, he's bringing people closer together. According to the video's press release, he shot it in his own hometown of Washington, DC, which gives it a personal touch. In the video, Lev wanders through the Georgetown and Meridian Park neighborhoods, serenading other residents with his music. These strangers then become new friends who join in the song, turning one man's single into a community performance.
It's an incredibly charming video because it depicts exactly what music fans love about music: its ability to bring people together. Not only is the song itself catchy, but the video sends a positive message and makes the listener part of the group, too. It's sweet, simple and everything one could ask for from a music video.
Audiences who are charmed by "Making Space" can see Lev live this summer and fall. The release of the "Making Space" video comes just days before he embarks upon an extensive tour that will keep him on the road through September. He has almost two dozen concert dates lined up across the East Coast. Hearing his latest music live and in person just adds to the joyful experience that is the music of Eli Lev. Perhaps fans can make new friends at one of his shows, and continue to pay the idea of this video forward.
