Born and raised between orient and occident, Alev Lenz is the daughter of a Turkish artist and a German businessman. As a songwriter, composer and singer 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.
While working on material for her forthcoming third LP, Alev Lenz sang and co-wrote the title track of Anoushka Shankar’s Grammy-nominated album Land of Gold, as well as composing her breakthrough track Fall Into Me for Charlie Brooker’s Netflix series Black Mirror.
Since Fall Into Me, her voice and writing have been in steady demand. Alev is currently working on her debut feature film score, a commissioned piece for Brooklyn Youth Chorus, as well as writing for Anoushka Shankar´s upcoming album. Her latest single May The Angels found placement in the forthcoming Netflix series DARK Season 2.
This September Alev Lenz will share her third LP 3 via SA Recordings, a brand new London label brought to you by Spitfire Audio and dedicated to supporting music created with real instruments by contemporary composers.
WildKat is working with Alev and SA Recordings on the press and pr for her album ‘3’ released 27th September 2019.
