First Listen: Sylvia Tosun's "Above All"
By Noah Michelson
Singer Sylvia Tosun releases her new EP, Above All, tomorrow and we've got your first listen of the title track (above). The founder of Sea To Sun Recordings, Tosun has scored a half-dozen hits on the Global Dance Club Play charts, including the No. 1 Billboard Club Play anthem "Push n Pull," No. 1 UK Club hit of 2009 "5 Reasons," and U.S. Dance Radio hit "Underlying Feeling." Accepted to Juilliard at just 15 years old, she went on to earn a BMI Songwriters Hall of Fame Excellence in Songwriting Award; a USA Songwriting Contest trophy; the USO's Ambassador to Goodwill Award (a two-time recipient); and kudos as Talent in Motion Magazine's Best Singer and Solo Artist.
Tosun can sing in nearly a dozen languages and her songs reflect her worldly perspective. On the Above All EP, the vocalist and her collaborator Anton Bass wrote four of the five EP tracks. The fifth track, "Ne Me Quitte Pas," is a French tune written by legendary poet Jacques Brel.
