Turn to the Lord
A resident of New York City's Staten Island borough, Panayiotis Peter Levis is a Christian pop-rock singer/composer with a knack for dramatic, emotional melodies. Musically, Levis has been influenced by heavy metal, progressive rock and arena rock--and the dramatic nature of his melodies brings to mind Survivor as well as the 1980s fantasy metal of headbangers like King Diamond, Manowar, Queensryche and Ronnie James Dio. But Levis' lyrics have an overtly Christian message, and the New Yorker (a Greek-American and a member of the Greek Orthodox Church) is unlikely to be mistaken for a secular artist. In early 2000, Levis circulated copies of his CD Turn To The Lord, which finds him programming all of the instruments and doing all of the singing, writing and producing himself. ~ Alex Henderson, All Music Guide ... --All Music Guide.
