In Our Heads: Joakim Levin

Posted 28 November 2013 in Music & Arts

He’s never had a real job. He graduated from high school, did a stint in the music business, opened up a second hand store and then co-founded Nudie Jeans. A project that would to pay the rent. Joakim Levin’s life has been a pretty straight line, thus he needed a challenge. We asked him about his most recent project.

– I’ve been a drummer all my life, and playing by yourself is really boring, so I decided to try things I won’t ever be able to play. And replicating the drumming of the late Levon Helm of The Band was a perfect project. I came up on punk and trying to feel this super organic jazz guy is so distant from what I’m used to. He’s not a drummer. He’s a musician whose instrument happens to be drums, and you can really hear that.
