Tina Yamout is a Lebanese singer, songwriter, composer, music producer and actress. Recognized for her authenticity, empowering lyrics and captivating melodies, Tina is marking the mainstream music industry with an edgy modern dimension on traditional Arabic pop music.
Achieving over 150,000 followers and subscribers on social media channels and digital streaming platforms as an independent artist, Tina’s content has accumulated over 5 million streams worldwide since 2018.
Highly commended as a composer, performer and performing artist through her college years, Tina launched her professional music career participating in the regional hit reality TV show Star Academy Arabia, where she acquired a reputable success on her exceptional stage presence and showmanship. Following that success, Tina continued to grow her career, collaborating and co-writing with local and international stars, including hit international duets with Chris De Burgh and highly acclaimed Lebanese composer, Ziad Rahbani.
Due to her career influences and having majored in Piano Studies at the prestigious National Conservatorium of Lebanon, Tina’s music genre bridges both worlds Western and Arab in production and composition, creating a signature sound familiar to both Arab and International audiences alike.
“Music is how I channel those intricate contradictory moments and behaviors that make us human.” Tina’s belief is that Arabic music has vast potential to grow and push boundaries globally. “Our culture is rich in rhythm and melody, and language was never a barrier with music; I aspire to play a role in growing our music and culture internationally. It would make many of our generations proud to see their own accomplish that with eloquence and genuineness.”
Tina's regard and support to music education has been significant throughout her journey. "I believe in paying it forward. If I can play a role in passing on the knowledge, the passion, the magic of music to younger and older generations, then I consider my time well-spent towards this gift I've been given," Tina says as she elaborates on her support for education. With a 7-year experience in academic elementary teaching in IB PYP Performing Arts and almost a decade of private vocal coaching, Tina continues to give back, currently teaching several classes in the United Arab Emirates, where she currently resides.
Last taking up acting and starring as “Laura” in the latest top-rated Ramadan series of 2019, “Ekher El Leil”, featured on Al Jadeed TV and MTV, Tina continues, "I loved acting. It allows me to explore a different perspective and broadens my view on life. It's very enriching and I'd love to do it again!"
Setting to drop a string of track single releases followed by her first concept album titled “7aki Ma Nqal” (or Words Unspoken) in 2020, Tina strives to make a significant impact on the music scene regionally and internationally.
