Álex Sánchez de Orduña, from León, Spain, now based in Ireland; emerged from the Municipal School of Music of León, and now develops an intense activity as a drummer in a country always devoted to musical matters.
He plays drums since he was a child and, in his case, we can say it is a flying instrument which takes him to Dublin. Because there is a bit of all that in Álex Sánchez de Orduña, maybe the drummer from León with the most peculiar career of recent times and still young. He always plays out of a comfort zone, both in terms of places and workmates. And his, was not an intentional decision but to get oneself swept up in passion without stopping whatever may be the circumstances. Because of that, what a young Leonese is doing on stage in Dublin is no more than showing that you don’t have to wait till 30 to reinvent yourself.

MY CURRENT PROJECTS
"Alex Sanchez is one of the young drummers of our country with more projection today. He has a very personal style and a very careful sound, besides being a dedicated student of the instrument. Don't lose track of him, because he'll give a lot to talk about!"
Jose Rosendo/ Drummer / Educator
“Alex Sanchez has been in the rock band ‘Elevation Falls’ since 2018 as a drummer, and has been a very hard worker, willing to improve his input in any way he can, and always available when needed for gigs or rehearsal. His stage presence is exceptional, and he contributes highly to the band presence. He is easy to work with, and happy to take on any promotional task related to the band. He’s always pleasant and engaging with members of the public, and I highly recommend him as a band member. I hope he will remain with Elevation Falls for the foreseeable future.”
