He puts his heart and soul into his music. It speaks to the essence of smooth jazz with a nice touch of funky bass. I cannot wait to hear more from Mr. Norwood. - Fan

The Levy Group, LLC has been busy in 2013, attending the NAMM Music Conference among other events, as well as promoting one of their brightest up and coming stars; Michael Norwood. While Norwood has been touring himself, the "Love Away" Tour will mark the first time that he and Emile Welman will embark on a tour together.
Welman and Norwood are joined by Grammy nominated artist Howard Hill for the tour that kicked off at the Cima Collina Wine Tasting Room in Carmel Valley on March 3rd. Upcoming dates include March 7th at Kuumbwa Jazz Center in Santa Cruz, March 9th at Mission Ranch in Carmel, and March 10th at Cafe Du Nord in San Francisco.
Tickets for Kuumbwa Jazz Center and Mission Ranch can be purchased at http://emilewelmansc.eventbrite.com/, while tickets for Cafe Du Nord can be purchased through http://www.TicketWeb.com. Seating to all concerts is limited, so advance ticket purchase is recommended.
Heart Beatz, the new album by versatile bassist and songwriter Michael Norwood, has already started receiving critical acclaim due to standout tracks such as his new single "People Make the World Go Round." A soulful rendition of The Stylistics classic, the song is "more than a catchy groove with a melodic hook" according to Norwood. "It speaks of hard-working people taking a stand for what they believe in and want out of life." Earning the praise of peers, critics, and fans alike, he has been making quite a name for himself in promotion of his latest work. Endorsed by Levy’s Leathers, Aguilar Amplification, Dean Markley, Reunion Blues, Hipshot Products, and Mono Cases to name a few, he looks to be a mainstay of the musical landscape for the foreseeable future and beyond.

Emile Welman's voice has been compared to that of "Frank Sinatra's" by none other than Tony Bennett, and long-time fan Clint Eastwood has said that the jazz crooner "possesses truly extraordinary talent as a singer and songwriter." The jazz crooner is a perfect complement to Norwood, as both artists blend traditional soul and jazz with modern flair and passion. As one of Norwood's fans adds; "He puts his heart and soul into his music. It speaks to the essence of smooth jazz with a nice touch of funky bass. I cannot wait to hear more from Mr. Norwood."
