Biography

Sibel Tüzün is a successful Turkish pop singer.

Her first solo album Ah Biz Kızlar was released in 1992. This album shot Sibel to mass popularity within Turkey. The next year was spent on an exhaustive tour. After working with Robert Bricknell in London for a while, she returned to Turkey and released her second album, Nefes Keser Asklar in 1995. This too was extremely successful, proving that her debut was no flash in the pan.

After completing a 1997 tour of Europe, Sibel started her own production company Arinna Muzik. Her album ‘Hayat Buysa Ben Yokum Bu Yolda’ (If This Is Life, I’m Not In) was released in 1998 and contained eight songs with lyrics written by Sibel. According to an article by Stephen Thanabalan for Ballettanz Magazine, this album also demonstrated Sibel’s production talents, adding to her reputation as an artist, where even French channel MCM took notice of her talent. Her continental fame was sealed with the hit Yine Yalınzım in 2002.

By 2003, she released her fifth album, Kırmızı (Red). This brought her to the peak of her career, making her more popular than ever.

Her sixth album, Kıpkırmızı (Crimson) which included Greek versions and remixes of songs of Kırmızı, came out a year later to great success.

In May 2006 Sibel represented Turkey in the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Süper Star”, which finished 11th.

Now Sibel is working on her new album Saten (Satin), which release date is not known yet.
