song and chant
Alana Levandoski is a contemplative song and chant writer who makes her home with her husband and children near Riding Mountain National Park, in Canada.
Clocking in over 10 years as a progressive roots/ alt country songwriter, once signed to Rounder Records and touring 19 countries many times over, Alana grew to be a veteran songwriter, performer and producer. However, she left the music business in 2010 due to burn out and personal loss and was very unsure of ever revisiting writing and recording as a profession.
In 2015, after attending the Living School for Action and Contemplation, Alana discerned that a return to recording music was being asked of the deepest part of her. Being tap-rooted in the Christian tradition, which had always been like a fire in the belly, regardless of religious trauma, a new call to express the depths of the incarnate nature of life through music, became very clear.
Since September 2015, Alana released a full lenght album entitled Behold, I Make all Things New, then another full length album entitled Sanctuary - Exploring the Healing Path (with James Finley) and then an EP, called Imago Dei. She is currently producing an album entitled Point Vierge (the Journey of Thomas Merton in song). Point Vierge will be released in April 2018.
