Biography

Carl Abou Samah ( كارل أبو سمح)  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.

Karl was born in Beirut, Lebanon. Later on his family moved to Dubai, UAE, a few years later due to the civil war in Lebanon. In an interview with Shave Magazine, Karl explained that in Arabic, his family name (Abou Samah) means 'father of forgiveness.'. His stage name 'wolf' derives from a nickname he received on his high school basketball team as he was the smallest but yet the quickest in his team. He also says his mother and father drove him to a career in music. Wolf's mother was a piano teacher and his father played the guitar, drums and a traditional Middle Eastern musical instrument called oud.

Karl began his career "behind the scenes," and has been writing co-producing since 2001. The 2001 hit album from Gabriel Destroismaisons generated two singles co-written by him that reached #1 on the BDS Francophone Charts, and the record earned him a Felix Award at the L' ADISQ Awards for "Best Mix and Sound of the Year".

Wolf's work with Gabrielle brought Karl Wolf to the attention of Antoine Sicotte, of the top-selling Canadian pop band Sky, where he was recruited as a singer-songwriter becoming Sky's new lead singer in 2002.Wolf co-wrote and co-produced the third Sky album, Picture Perfect (on Sextant/EMI), with strong airplay across Canada. Sicotte and Wolf cooperated on the hugely successful Star Academie reality TV show in Quebec. The subsequent album was the biggest-selling album in Canada in 2003, notching a phenomenal sales in Canadian terms and earning Karl Wolf a SOCAN Award for Most Popular Song. A Star Académie II sequel in 2004 was another big success, the album going double-platinum.
