About the event

Tony Lucca

Tony Lucca is a Nashville-based singer/songwriter and public speaker whose catalog of music runs the gamut from soul-infused pop to tear-jerker folk balladry. His music has been featured on shows like “Parenthood,” “Friday Night Lights,” “Felicity,” and “Brothers and Sisters.” His career started on Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club, alongside some of pop culture’s most standout icons like Justin Timberlake, Brittney Spears, Keri Russell and Ryan Gosling. After a short stint in film and television, he began his music career in earnest, writing and recording songs that would quickly earn him the LA Music Award for Best Male Singer/Songwriter. In 2012, after several albums and EP releases, Lucca took third place on NBC’s “The Voice,” earning himself a record deal with coach Adam Levine’s 222 Records. He has toured alongside such artists as Sara Bareilles, Jonny Lang, Marc Anthony, Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson, Rachael Yamagata, Emerson Hart, and Gabe Dixon. 

As a public speaker, Lucca has sewn together his craft of storytelling and musical performance into a form often referred to as a “keynote concert”, invigorating audiences, both young and old, with his personal yet captivating presence. During the pandemic of 2020, Lucca curated the Mo’Verb Lounge Sessions: a bi-monthly Live stream webcast series with themes and content contributed by his wildly devoted fans. He currently resides in Nashville with his wife, Rachel, their kids Liam and Sparrow, along with their dog Apple.

Rachel Levitin

Growing up in the city of Chicago, she didn’t initially aspire to be a pop-rock recording artist, but an eclectic love of jazz, early aughts radio hits, and expressive ambition led her to pick up her first guitar as a tween. As the ordinary and extraordinary traumas of early adulthood crashed down, Levitin channeled her grief, optimism, and growth into her lyrics. A move to DC in 2005 introduced her to the Washington-area music scene, where she quickly established a reputation for herself as a confident performer and a stalwart supporter of her peers. Her debut EP, “Nearly Broken” was released in 2015 and was followed by a string of singles, including 2021’s “Off My Mind”, which showcased Levitin’s ability to write an unforgettable hook. In an age when wispy cynicism is en vogue, Levitin’s earnest, raw lyricism sets her apart from the crowd. Her music combines the endorphin rushes of early aughts hits with the emotional availability of a healed woman.

As the pandemic brought live music to a grinding halt in 2020, Levitin channeled her creative energies into music production and began shining a light on gender inequity in the music industry. Together with a team of talented DC creatives, she is currently self-producing her debut LP, due out in 2023.
