SvnZevs Releases Melodic Hit “Run”
Taking inspiration from the beauty and suffering found in our collective experience, SvnZevs, the name a nod to ancient greek mythology; tells tales of love, lust, suffering, heartbreak, human imperfection and the process of self-realization. Traces of influences from influential musical acts like The Beatles and Ed Sheeran can be found in the music of SvnZevs.
The release of “Run” was a product of beautiful lyricism and the emotional translation of the poetic verses in a song. The melodic and gorgeously resonance of SvnZevs floats beautifully on top of the hauntingly extravagant acoustic chords from the guitar. Setting a mood of relaxation mixed with passion, “Run” is emotive and conducted with grace and sensitivity. SvnZevs shows off the talented and skilled vocal range while keeping a mellow tone that’s fitting for the singles aesthetic.
What I like most about this song is the emotional reflective quality that’s equipped with the musical backtrack and vocals. It’s good to add to any playlist where you can sit down, relax and just contemplate on your sentimental thoughts and feelings. SvnZevs orchestrated this single in such a prepossessing manner and it’s truly one of a kind and extremely riveting!

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Heeey! What's up, citizens of Mt. Olympus? SvnZevs is officially in the house! Woot Woot!
Can you give us a brief history of your musical career?
This is the first project in which I've been the main creative force. I've been fortunate to be in a variety of different bands over the years, and have had the opportunity to tour, record albums, and establish some lifelong friendships that I value greatly. I started making beats when I was 18, on the FL Studio 5 demo, so I could never save anything! Then I learned guitar and songwriting and singing and have been putting all of them together to make a vetted mingle mangle of sounds.
How did you come up with your name? Is there a meaning behind it?
One day I was in Shavasana, my most favourite yoga pose, and it just popped into my mind. I thought it could represent the Sun and Zeus and Greek Mythology, as well as sounding like "Sun Tzu", the Chinese philosopher. Both of those are subjects which interest me so I went with it because it was a Two-for-One special!
We love your new song "Run"? Can you tell us a bit about the song?
I wrote "Run" one day in a park in Hollywood, with the golden hues of a fading sunset illuminating the leaves of the alder trees in summer. I was in a sentimental mood and was practicing some other song and it just started coming out. I had been through a lot of tough life events in the past couple of years and I was starting to pick up the pieces of my life in a way.
Did you face any challenges writing "Run"?
I don't remember having much difficulty writing it. I think it mostly all came in one sitting. I hadn't really written anything quite like that and I love when things feel new to me. One of my favorite things is just getting lost in the creative process, not knowing where it's going to end up but just following the little hunches and ideas you get and seeing where they take you.
Where did the inspiration behind the song come from?
The inspiration from the song came from the Santa Monica Pier and Beach, and from my feelings.
What are three things you’d love your fans to know about you?
I am excited to meet you, please don't be afraid to reach out about anything!
I like green tea, sushi, and mushrooms.
I use to make screamo music
Any upcoming shows? For someone who hasn’t seen you live yet, how would you describe your performance?
I don't currently have any shows booked. Right now, I have been playing acoustic versions of my songs at places such as coffee shops, house shows, and songwriter rounds.
What’s next for SvnZevs?
I am working to expand to add members to the project and add exciting live rhythms and harmonies to dance and sing to. Look out for the "Run" music video just released last week!
I also will have a brand new single out in December!
