His career began as a singer and music performer, playing in various clubs around Tel Aviv. He also appeared in the musical "Hair." During the 1970s, Levy performed in France and Germany as a duo known as "Shuki & Aviva". Together with his partner Aviva Paz he scored a hit single throughout Europe called "Signorina - Concertina" which sold two million copies. Levy composed Halayla, the Israeli entry to the 1981 Eurovision Song Contest.

While living in Paris, he met businessman and musician Haim Saban, with the two becoming close friends and frequent collaborators. In an interview, Levy recalled “Haim said, ‘We’ll be co-composer. You do the composing, I’ll do the deals.’ I figured, ‘Great. Brothers.’ That was the last business conversation we had for many years. We were partners. We never had a written agreement. It was all verbal.” They eventually moved to Los Angeles and founded Saban Entertainment, a production company responsible for numerous animated shows and Japanese adaptions, such as Digimon, X-Men, Spider-Man and Power Rangers. The company was sold to The Walt Disney Company by the end of 2001.

During the 1980s and 1990s, he was noted for composing a large volume of television music; according to BMI's music publishing database, he has written a combined total of 3,928 themes, background scores and songs. In an 1998 investigation by The Hollywood Reporter, it was revealed that many of these compositions were ghostwritten by other composers, in order for Levy and Haim Saban to gain control of all publishing rights and music royalty revenue.

As of October 3, 2013 Levy is currently working on a new show he created called Tribe Of The Wild set for a 2014 release, Levy also signed a first-look production deal with Relativity TV to oversee worldwide distribution, finance and production for Levy’s content in the children’s and family space, Tribe Of The Wild will be the first show under the deal.

Personal life

In 1977, Levy was married to television actress Deborah Shelton (Dallas), with whom he has a daughter. He was also in a relationship with television actress Sarah Brown (General Hospital), with whom he has a second daughter.
