7 Track EP
SRVENT: Battle Angel was released on March 24th, 2020. Staying true to SRVENT’s roots as a storyteller, this EP raises the bar for the Canadian artist in a massive way by putting himself in the center of the 2029 film, “Alita: Battle Angel”. What started as a mental exercise turned into a project that helped to carry him through a dark time in his life.
Spencer was working full-time evenings and not seeing his wife or family very much. Plus his personal demons had been getting the best of him for some time. After watching the movie with a client, he brought his wife to see it on a weekend, and then he even went a third time. Something about Alita as a character resonated and inspired him to start turning his life around. He focused his energy into the challenge of crafting a strong first person narrative as a companion to the film; sticking to the pillars of the story but taking creative license enough to render his own forceful interpretation of things.

7 Track EP
The Ammunition EP was released on November 29th, 2019. It is both a departure and a thematic continuation from his explorations in ‘Identity’. Following his characteristic ability to dive deep into meaningful subject matter, SRVENT personally tackles the relationship between purpose and hope through 7 brand new songs.
Ammunition was entirely produced, mixed and mastered by SRVENT in his home studio and features some vocals from the talented Kevin Rosmer. In addition, the final track sees the return of the phenomenal UK artist, Fran Minney, for a direct follow up to their collaboration song in 2018, ‘Hope’.
Although having a somewhat more defined sound since his debut album, you can always count on SRVENT for his work to be raw, personal, and flooded with meaning. Ammunition will leave a mark. Listen here.
15 Track Album
‘Identity’ was released on June 15th, 2018. In August, 2015, SRVENT threw up a Kickstarter to seek enough funding to purchase Ableton Live. Thanks to some amazing people, the starter wound up receiving international support and total funding. The promise he made for the financial supporters was a complete album in return and though it took a while, he absolutely delivered.
For most of his listeners, ‘Identity’ has been their entry point. What stood out to reviewers was the hyper-lyrical, clear and concise poetry that lined all 15 tracks. Since his process was a combination of composing and writing, what emerged were a highly variable set of songs where no two sounded alike, each in their own soundscape. Despite this mosaic approach, the sum whole of the project is a deep examination of the self that produced many beloved songs. ‘Identity’ is the rich pot of soil from which SRVENT has emerged.
