After a successful debut with his single “The River” this past August , multi-talented Lebanese Dubai-based singer, songwriter, music producer, actor and director Son Savage returns with a full-length album titled “Folie À Deux”. Discover ‘Walkin’ away’ the January 11th in Formula Indie
Following the runaway success of his recent single ‘The River’ that saw him compete with
Amr Diab and Al Jasmi for chart position, Beirut artist Son Savage is back with his debut
album, “Folie à Deux.”
Son Savage’s single ‘The River’ catapulted him into the charts this summer, topping the
Anghami International Chart for three weeks and reaching No.4 in the Full Charts.
The River was a four-minute slice of pop perfection backed by a brilliantly creative video that
And that successful formula is replicated on “Folie à Deux” and its lead single ‘Love
Son Savage not only writes, composes, produces and performs all his own music, but on
‘Love Therapy’ he also acts in the video and makes his directorial debut behind the camera.
And like ‘The River,’ ‘Love Therapy’ is another brilliant pop song packed with creativity and

listener through the ups and downs of falling in and out of love.’
And just as love can come in many different guises, the album shuffles through an array of
genres: from full-blown gospel choirs to a shredding guitar solo and from talkbox and synth
to sassy sax, the album is alive with ideas brilliantly brought to life.
Then again, when Son Savage lists his influences as ‘Soul, Funk, Blues, Motown, Gospel,
Rockabilly and Rock & Roll with ‘being Arab’’ you get an insight into just why his album is as
eclectic as it is.
But this success so nearly didn’t happen.
The world watched on in shock as the Beirut port blast devastated the Lebanese capital just

And that moment acted as a catalyst for Son Savage. Realising that life was too short – and
fragile – he put aside his office job and turned to music.
It was far from a gamble though, says the artist.
‘COVID & the Beirut Blast combined allowed me to simply shift my priorities and give more
time to what I am truly passionate about – and that is always going to be music.’
The business world’s loss is very much the music world’s gain.
