Summer Set 2017: SEVEN LIONS
by Jennifer K Johnson

Jeff Montalvo is a 30 year old electronic music producer from Santa Barbara, California. He began releasing music under the name Seven Lions in 2010. His style varies from dubstep to trance which led to him releasing music under several labels including Casablanca Records, OWSLA, Anjunabeats, and Monstercat.

Seven Lions has released a handful of EPs throughout the years. His first, titled Polarized, was released in April 2012. Later that same year, he released another EP, Days to Come. The title track is a token dubstep tune and features vocalist Fiora; it currently has well over 11 million streams on Spotify.

His next EP, Worlds Apart, was released in 2013. Songs feature vocals from Ellie Goulding, Tove Lo, and Kerli. Two more EPs followed in 2015 and 2016, titled The Throes of Winter and Creation. The latter topped the Billboard Electronic Albums chart upon its release. His latest EP, Where I Won’t Be Found, was just released this past June and has been a big talkabout throughout the dubstep scene.

Seven Lions puts on a visually stunning performance. His sets will transition from emotional, melodic tracks to straight filthy dubstep. Make sure to add him to your Summer Set Music Festival schedule; you will not be disappointed!
