Acoustic-pop singer songwriter Eli Lev is taking the music industry by storm with his latest single, “Vacation”. Prior to becoming a full time musician, the Silver Spring, MD native spent three years as an 8th grade English teacher on the Navajo Nation in Northern Arizona. The indigenous traditions he learned during this time are the inspiration for his Four Directions project. Just as each cardinal direction holds unique characteristics in the Navajo tradition, so do each of the albums in Eli’s ‘Four Directions Project.’ Together, the series imaginatively and intrepidly connects spheres and generations within a body of work that is irresistibly uplifting, emotionally resonant, and down-to-earth authentic.

“Vacation” was written as a way to remind himself that everyday he could put myself in the same mental state if he was thankful for his partner and everything they had in life. They could be each other’s escape and peaceful feeling. He wrote this song turning all the mundane tasks of everyday living during the pandemic into something exotic and special and interesting – kind of like an extremely long vacation!

This uplifting jam is a constant reminder that it is not what happens to you, but how you ultimately react to it. This song will make you feel like taking pleasure in the small things, and appreciating all that life has to offer.
