If there's anything that marks both Levek the band and Levesque the man, it's terroir of the spirit, a Sunshine State of mind. "I feel like Florida is in a really great place, actually, right now," he says. "I can only speak from a Gainesvillean's perspective, but as far as what we're doing to help bring all these people up, it's just creating the perfect atmosphere for a musician to be influenced by others and create themselves and have spaces for them to do that, you know? And I think that's only gonna make the scene grow. And there are so many bands right now, at least in Gainesville, and what I've seen from Orlando and other parts of the state, that are just incredible. There's definitely so much potential going on."
