Ones to Watch: Anthony Touma

Genre: Pop

The Lebanese-French Pop singer-songwriter Anthony Touma makes his international debut with the release of his new single “Walk Away” on July 7th, off his upcoming collection of tracks set for release this year.

“Walk Away” serves as a powerful calling card for the 25-year-old singer, songwriter, and musician. His signature sound is driven by a soulful voice and touching lyrics. Touma’s musical genre of choice is best described as Pop with a touch of RnB, as he is influenced by Pop King Michael Jackson and Soul sensation Stevie Wonder, as well as Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars and Jason Mraz.

The track was produced by two young talented Lebanese producers, Sleiman Damien and Tarek Majdalani, in their studios with all the vocals recorded at Touma’s little home studio. It all started with a melody, an idea for the lyrics and a bass line.

Touma says of his sources of inspiration “This track is one of the tracks that speaks to me most, it tells my story and it just makes me feel good when I listen to it. On my journey to where I am today, I had a lot of people not believing in me. As time went by and as I moved forward and improved, these same people started noticing my success and came back to me acting friendly, supportive and showing “Fake love” as Drake would say. They inspired me to write this song. I felt a lot of people would relate, it also reminded me of relationships where your ex who left you suddenly gains interest again because you’ve “gotten prettier” or more successful etc. ”

In 2011, Touma produced two original songs that were topping local stations playlists. “Morning Walk” ranked fourth on NRJ Lebanon’s charts, while “Just To See You Smile” remained within the NRJ top 20 for 8 consecutive weeks. The success of his singles earned him a slot in the NRJ Music Tour 2012, opening the show for headliner Hip Hop artist Sean Kingston.

The Lebanese singer was recently signed to Universal Music MENA, and is currently working on his upcoming English Album.
