Releasing Shame and Self-Hate through Sobriety | Levi Kreis

Episode 21: Levi Kreis

Welcome back to The Life Shift Podcast—candid conversations about the pivotal moments that change lives forever!


In this episode, Matt is joined by Tony and Outer Critic’s Circle Award winning singer, songwriter, and actor Levi Kreis, star of Hadestown.


Levi talks about the journey to his Tony win for Million Dollar Quartet, how it was impacted by his addiction, and how he uses his music to heal others.


Listen as Levi tells compelling tales of hiding addiction while being in the spotlight, adversity in the entertainment industry, and the conversation that served as a wake-up call.


Finally, hear what Levi would tell his younger self, and how he dealt with the inability to perform his most emotional song.
