Samia Tawil is a Pop/Rock/Soul singer-songwriter. Her music could be described as a rich blend between the sexiness of Lenny Kravitz’s vintage Funk/Rock and the power and eloquence of female pop-rockers such as Alanis Morissette or Skunk Anansie.
Born in Switzerland from a Moroccan mother and a Syrian/Swiss father, Samia has been immersed in music since an early age, be it rock, soul or oriental/arabic music. She discovered very early her passion for writing and words : poignant, rebelling, indignated words, which soon led her to songwriting, in a will to put into music her rebellious poetry and her colorful multicultural universe. She perfected her musical knowledge with classes in singing and music theory, developing through that a repertory of compositions which caught the eye of an NY based production company, with whom she recorded some of her songs and performed on stage at the early age of 14, including on the French TV show “Hit Machine”, in Paris, that also hosted Björk and Sheryl Crow.
Samia has also been professionally involved in dance, performing with Janet Jackson's troupe in Vancouver. Combining her experience as a dancer in several important concerts and her experience as a singer, Samia best expresses the whole spectrum of her art on stage and captivates the audience..
After her contract ended, she decided to surround herself with new musicians who would fit better her increasingly «rockish» sound, and with that band, her music took on new force, performing at numerous concerts and festivals all around Europe, which allowed her to create a certain following and regular airplays, especially in France, Switzerland, Holland, and in the UK.
She has now just finished recording her first album, which reflects all the power of Samia Tawil’s sound: the pulse and strength of pop/rock music subtely blended with the mystery and emotion of soul music. This musical mix, exacerbated with her deep lyrics and her hypnotic stage performances, makes Samia a unique artist.
