Album Notes
Talk about global impact. Singer/songwriter Tinatin grew up in the Soviet Republic of Georgia, singing along as a child to songs recorded by idols Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion, before she had mastered English—one of six languages she now speaks fluently. Songwriter/producer Ayhan Sahin, meanwhile, worked for a decade as a civil engineer in his native Turkey, before his musical muse called him to the U.S. in 2000.

By the middle of the last decade, both were entrenched in the New York arts and entertainment scene, and it was only a matter of time before their paths would cross. Through a web of international contacts, Tinatin and Ayhan were introduced via a mutual ally, label owner and music publishing veteran Bernadette O’Reilly.

The pair’s ongoing alliance—showcased here by the six-track EP “Wild”—offers two divergent artists finding a common refrain worthy of the world stage, with all songs written by Tinatin and Sahin, and arranged/produced by Sahin. The disc includes a posse of name-brand live musicians, including acclaimed Aussie Garth Ploog on piano, classical guitarist Emre Yilmaz, violinist Elyssa Samsel, Mike Stanzilis on bass, drummer Mike Sorrentino, and Dennis DelGaudio on electric and acoustic guitars.

Amid a force field of cacophonous percussion, the universal title track offers a socially conscious anthem about the ravages of climate change, as a rash of alarming trends sweep the land: “temperatures plummeting to 12 below at the equator, a dry spell across South America’s tropical rainforests and fire along the Polar ice caps.” The song’s insistent musical and thematic beat was such an inspiration for Tinatin and Sahin that they decided to remix it into a frenetic dance floor paean, complete with a deliriously frenzied rhythmic gait that could truly set the North Pole into flames.

The EP also features a video clip for “Wild,” lensed by Christopher Holmes, shot with Tinatin wearing vintage couture and a glamorous fur, poetically set amid the disparity of New York East Village dive bar Niagara. (This was the scene for the album shoot, as well, with photography by Devin Delano.)

The tender, regretful “Fly” tells of a lamenting lover whose partner has been untrue, defiantly offering no second chances. “When you come back, I’ll be out of your life, say goodbye,” she sings. Similarly, the midtempo “Said and Done” gracefully acknowledges when it’s time to turn the page and begin a new life chapter; while “If You Ever” is a lovely lilting ballad that reminds a loved one that a helping hand is waiting in the wings: “If you lose your ground, if you come undone/If I held you in my arms, you would feel the love inside.”

Aside from this first physical CD release, Tinatin has certainly seen her career burgeon since planting roots in the U.S. Debut single “We the Peoples”—based on the United Nations Charter—earned her kudos as one of Billboard magazine’s 2008 “Artists To Watch,” while composition “Connected” was a finalist in the Pop category of the John Lennon Song Contest. “Is It True,” written by Tinatin with Óskar Páll Sveinsson and acclaimed producer Christopher Neil, was runner-up at the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest. The entry was subsequently hailed as the pageant’s Song of the Decade. She is also co-writing her memoir about being a young girl in Soviet Russia with a dream to conquer the Western world, and developing a similarly themed one-woman stage show with renowned Broadway composer/arranger Timothy Graphenreed.

Sahin has made good use of his time, as well, working with Olivia Newton-John, Melba Moore, Phoebe Snow, Turkish superstar Sezen Aksu, Sandra Bernhard and a half-dozen “American Idol” finalists—including a collaboration as production duo DNA with classically trained guitarist and Billy Joel touring member Delgaudio on “Bitch Slap!,” the 2010 debut single for “AI” season eight finalist Norman Gentle—whose music video logged more than 50,000 YouTube hits in three days after being launched by The Los Angeles Times and Yahoo! Music.

Under the umbrella of his independent record label Young Pals Music, Sahin has demonstrated his cosmic command by producing three full-length albums for Canadian chanteuse Karine Hannah, as well as projects for Chilean-American singer/songwriter Promis, Puerto Rican actor/singer Mitch Zorba, French artist Lybert Ramade and MTV “Making the Band” finalist Adam Shenk.

“Wild” the EP represents a moment in time—for now. This collection is only the initial evidence of the creative spirit between two artists whose abundant potential is pressing forward with each passing season. Give Tinatin and Sahin another year or two. Things are bound to get even wilder.
