"Influenced by some of the legendary names of pop and soul, such as the Beatles, Elton John, Otis Redding, and Stevie Wonder, Californian Ernie Halter first began to make waves for himself with the release of his 2005 collection, Lo-Fidelity. The singer and songwriter got his start playing a small -- mostly covers -- coffeehouse gig in 1992, and was able to maintain the difficult position of being a working musician (and closet songwriter) by simply paying his dues, working on songs in his spare time, and playing in coffeehouses and smaller gigs to keep active on the scene and to sharpen his skills. Eventually, word of mouth and the Internet community on websites such as MySpace and YouTube worked in Halter's favor, and by 2007 -- and his next release, Congress Hotel (on Rock Ridge Music) -- he had built up quite a buzz, and the staunchly indie Halter could be seen touring throughout much of the United States."

Adam Levy is perhaps best known for his tenure as the featured guitarist in Norah Jones' Handsome Band (2001–2007). He played on her breakout 2002 CD 'Come Away with Me' and her next two albums as well. Levy has been onstage and/or in the studio with Rosanne Cash, Amos Lee, M. Ward, and up-and-coming Aussie artist Eran James. In addition to Levy's skills as a player, he is a gifted songwriter. He penned "In the Morning" for Jones' Feels Like Home, and other artists have recorded his songs as well. There's no doubt, though, that the best way to hear Levy's folk/pop/blues gems is straight from the source. Levy has recorded several albums on his own. 'The Heart Collector' is his latest. "It is a great album overflowing with warm and soulful songs that enchant the ears and captivate the heart." —No Depression.
"It's his guitar virtuosity, melancholy melodies, vocals -- multiple musical personalities -- that will surely mesmerize you." —Minor 7th
"If you're looking for an intimate record to absorb and get lost in, this is a good bet." —Snobs Music
