"He proceeded to rock the Historic USO building like it's rarely been rocked before. By the end of his set, a crowd had gathered at the foot of the stage to dance to the band's thrashing riffs" - The Ridgecrest Daily Independent

"A delicious melange of things that might fit neatly under the Americana umbrella: pastoral balladry, kick-ass stompers, folksy sunniness, and more than a little punk-rock snarl ... Strong and assured, with loads of personality." - Popshifter

"If you're a fan of Frank Turner, you'll get hooked by the album's first two high-octane tracks "The Rapture" and "Fight On" ...The band's sense of fun is infectious and makes me excited to see them in person" - Adobe and Teardrops

A Ragin’ Cajun from Lafayette, Louisiana, Levi Petree was born on the bayou and infuses that area’s unique spirit into his music. His songs are lyric and guitar-driven, blending his love of British punk and new wave, Outlaw country of the 1970s, and the anthemic heartland-rock songs that top 40 DJs don’t seem to spin anymore. He has been cited by Music Connection Magazine for his "serious songwriting chops" and PopShifter Magazine described his style to be "A delicious melange of things that might fit neatly under the Americana umbrella: pastoral balladry, kick-ass stompers, folksy sunniness, and more than a little punk-rock snarl." Petree and his Encino-based band, The Radio Publica, are known for their rowdy and relentless live performances, producing "A sound that makes you just want to get up and dance" (The Ridgecrest News Review). Together, they recently released their debut album, sarcastically titled It's Country., which netted several published reviews praising that "at its thunderous acme ... this stirs rush-blooded, reciprocal dedication" (Damnation Dance Party).
