Biography

Maxwell LeVan (born April 2, 2003) is an American record producer, artist, songwriter, and record executive. He is best known for contributing to the creation of ''Toe Bamba'', his debut single, which attained 7x-platinum certification from MAHASZ.


Early Life

LeVan, a Catholic native of Southeast Virginia, began by producing hip-hop instrumentals in his bedroom and recording his own vocals on top of them. His first serious exposure to music came in 2013, when he was 10 years old; He was given Billy Joel and Elton John CDs, and later saw both performers live in concert.


2018-Present

LeVan was mentored for several years by his stepfather, who purchased 2 pianos for the Virginia home. Although LeVan never learned how to read sheet music or took piano lessons, he was born with perfect pitch, a rare ability of a person to identify or re-create a given musical note without the benefit of a reference tone. Thus, LeVan did not require the sheet music for a song in order to play it in key.

On December 5, 2018, LeVan's stepfather passed away unexpectedly after being in the hospital for 4 days. Devastated by the loss, LeVan turned to card magic as an escape from reality, and performed for the first time in 2019 at the Menchville High School talent show. Subsequently, LeVan invested in a bedroom studio and began his music career.

As a musician, LeVan's producing and writing work includes Trash Panda, his third record released in 2020, alongside 3 other singles. Earning recognition from Independent Music and Arts Inc. as a commercial success, LeVan's music has been streamed over 500,000 times across all platforms. LeVan hosts the morning news show for his school district, as the anchor of A Look Inside and The Focus Show for Newport News Public Schools.
