From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Sinan Özen (pronounced [sinan œzæn]; born 1 March 1964) is a Turkish singer, musician, songwriter, composer, actor, and TV presenter.

Life and career[edit]

Sinan Özen was born in Çayeli, Rize, Turkey. His family moved to İzmit when he was young and he spent a few years of his childhood there. Then they moved to Istanbul where Sinan had his primary and secondary education. He attended high school in Rize, at the Department of Lathe-Leveling in Rize Vocational High School.[1]

Sinan Özen had great passion to music from his young age and his first attempt to get into music world was in 1981 with a song contest that was advertised in a local newspaper. He participated and won the contest, however it did not move him forward in his career.

Later he met Süheyla Altmışdört, a tutor in Academy of Music, with the help of his musician friend, who taught him instrumental and solfeggio classes.[2] He also had instrumental oud and solfeggio training from Irfan Ozbakir, Turkish composer. Encouraged by his tutors he applied to Istanbul Academy of Music, and was accepted to Department of Turkish Classical Music in 1982 from where he graduated in 1988.

His professional career began with his first album Ruyalarim olmasa (“If I have no dreams”) in 1989.

From 1989 to 2016, Sinan Özen produced 17 albums[3] including one Turkish classical music album and 2 singles.
