Levi Stanford

Levi StanfordLevi Stanford was raised in the small town of Cardston, Alberta, Canada. He grew up in a musically inclined family where most of his siblings either played an instrument or sang, thus developing his own appreciation and fascination for music. He spent many years composing and performing songs that audiences from all walks of life can connect with.

He is a self-taught composer and producer. Around the age of twelve, his brother gave him an old guitar. After receiving the guitar, he taught himself how to play and began writing songs. After discovering his hidden talent for composing music, he began to broaden his range and began writing music on the piano. His genres of music include Pop, Rap, Rock, Alternative, and Classical. He says, “I love listening to and writing music in all genres from hard rock to classical.” Some of music artists who have influenced his music are Three Days Grace, Mumford & Sons, Lifehouse, Papa Roach, Anberlin, Switchfoot, Aerosmith, Jet, Keith Urban, Rascal Flats, Theory of a Deadman, Sherwood, POD, Chris Daughtry, William Joseph, Ludovico Einaudi, and Limitless.

Levi StanfordLevi married his wife, Amy, on Friday, 10 July 2015 in the Cardston Alberta Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Just five days after being married, on Wednesday, 15 July 2015, he was involved in a serious accident caused by a faulty pyrotechnic, which resulted in numerous injuries from the blast, including the loss of his left hand. He was hospitalized and put in an induced coma for six days. When he awoke in the Intensive Care Unit, he decided that his life was too much of a gift to complain about his new- found circumstances. He underwent multiple surgeries followed by countless hours of physical therapy before being discharged and returning home 57 days later. You can read more of his story on his website. Reflecting on the incident, Levi has said:

I believe my positive attitude coupled with my desire to live and succeed in life helped my body to heal at a substantial rate surprising not only me, but my physicians as well. From my accident I was inspired to dedicate my life to helping others both professionally and through service. I have seen how my story, and what I did to overcome my trials, can inspire others to live to their full potential and face whatever adversity they may experience with a positive attitude.

Combined with his inspirational music, Levi now travels around sharing his message of positivity when facing adversity. Through motivational speaking, he hopes to help people live to their full potential and gain the most they can out of this wonderful gift of life.

About the things that he has experienced, Levi says,

One of the most important things I have learned through this experience is that life is too short to waste time focusing on material things that don’t last. It’s not wrong to “want” material things and an abundance of money, but when that becomes our focus we miss out on what really matters in this life and that is our connections with people.  In those times of adversity when you need support to help you make it through, you will find that one of the only things that can help to pull you up is your relationships, your family, and your friends.  They are what motivated me to keep fighting and pleading to live.
