Moving into largely uncharted territory, this marks the first in an exciting new series of sample libraries made in conjunction with the release of an artist's album. Each album will be released on SA Recordings, the brand new London label owned by Spitfire Audio, dedicated to supporting music created by contemporary composers. This concept is an invitation for musicians and producers to reimagine, recreate or completely pull apart the sound world of an artist to facilitate their own vision. Alev Lenz's third album, '3', is out now which you can purchase on our SA shop , or alternatively, purchase as a bundle to receive the sample library, limited edition 12 inch gatefold vinyl and digital album download.
As a songwriter, composer and singer, Alev Lenz’s rich catalogue of compositions fuse distinctive musical worlds into something that is authentically hers. Her honest lyrics, instinct for melodic hooks and intriguing harmonics form deep and compelling songs that hold their own on both record and screen.
Alev Lenz sang and co-wrote the title track on Anoushka Shankar's Grammy-nominated album Land of Gold, as well as composing her breakthrough track Fall Into Me for hit dystopian Netflix series Black Mirror. Her latest single May The Angels has found placement in the forthcoming Netflix series Dark.
Alev’s rich experience as a composer and new-found identity as a mother forms the back bone of her third LP, '3' – an intimate and powerful self-produced collection of songs, featuring choral arrangements sung by Grammy-Award winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth.
