People.com refers to the uproarious and spicy “Ms. Marianne” single and video as a “New Take on ‘Mrs. Robinson,’” the hit film and song of the same title from the late 1960s. One of the most-added singles out-of-the-box, Levon’s “Ms. Marianne” is currently #64* on Billboard airplay charts. Co-written by lead singer Michael David Hall, James Dean Hicks and Jamie Houston. “Ms. Marianne” was produced by Jamie Houston who also produced all five tracks on the trio’s EP available HERE.
The hilarious and steamy “Ms. Marianne” music video, produced by Jennifer Destiny Ansell and directed by Peter Zavadil, is available HERE. The music clip features several scenes filmed at Wild Orchid in Franklin, Tennessee near Nashville, at which band member Hall was formerly employed and waited on the woman who actually inspired the song and whose name is not Marianne and will remain anonymous.
Levon consists of three best friends: Northbrook, Illinois, native Michael David Hall (on guitar and lead vocals, with a soaring five-octave range); Sumter, South Carolina’s Jake Singleton (on harmonies, bass, and percussion); and Camden, Tennessee, native Ryan Holladay (on guitar, mandolin, banjo and harmonies).
