About Seven Lions
Seven Lions is an American EDM artist known for his epic combinations of trance, dubstep, and other electronic music styles.
∙ After spending his teen years as a drummer in a variety of punk and metal bands, he attended his first rave in 2007 and started producing trance.
∙ His big break came in 2012, when he entered—and won—a remix competition put on by trance act Above & Beyond, reworking their song “You Got to Go.”
∙ Seven Lions dropped the debut EP Polarize in 2012 and then quickly signed to Skrillex’s OWSLA label, which issued his Days to Come EP a few months later.
∙ “Don’t Leave,” the lead track from 2014’s Worlds Apart EP, featured a guest appearance by British pop singer Ellie Goulding.
∙ Worlds Apart kicked off a run of three straight Top 5 entries on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart—the second of those, 2015’s The Throes of Winter, hit No. 1.
∙ A wide variety of artists—including Florence + the Machine, Paul van Dyk, Delerium, Röyksopp, Ferry Corsten, and Excision—have tapped Seven Lions to remix tracks.
