Levinhurst is an independent music band formed by Lol Tolhurst, a founding member of The Cure, and his wife Cindy Levinson. Levinson provides vocals while Tolhurst writes the majority of the tracks, musically and lyrically, and programmes the drums and keyboards. So far, Levinhurst has released three studio albums - Perfect Life, House by the Sea, and Blue Star, and one EP called The Grey. The Grey includes a cover of The Cure song "All Cats Are Grey", a song for which Tolhurst claims to have written the lyrics.[1]
