Biography

Carl Abou Samah (in Arabic كارل أبو سمح; born in Beirut, Lebanon on April 18, 1979) is a Lebanese-born Canadian musician based in Montreal (QC), Canada. He is better known by his stage name Karl Wolf. He has been a singer, songwriter and producer since 2001, releasing his first solo album Face Behind the Face on MapleNationwide/Universal in January 2006, followed by a second album Bite the Bullet in November 2007. His third album Nightlife was released on November 17, 2009. After 9 years with EMI Music, in March 2010 he signed a new recording contract in the United States with Universal Republic.

When Karl Wolf describes the six months since the release of his solo debut, Face Behind The Face, as “just insane,” he means it in a good way. A frenzied work schedule of shooting videos, doing promotional tours, and performing in Canada and abroad is paying off, as the world is responding welcomingly to this vibrant new star.

Karl Wolf is a genuine triple threat of talent. A songwriter, producer and singer of serious skill and originality, he excels in all three roles on Face Behind The Face (released on MapleNationwide/Universal in January). As Karl sings on the title track, “I’m coming out for the whole world to see,” and this is one memorable introduction.

Since its release, the album broke in the Canadian Top 100 sales chart and spawned two hit singles, “Butterflies” and “Desensitize”, with the latter track (featuring hip hop star Choclair) reaching the BDS Top 40 charts.
