Mo Zowayed

Mo Zowayed is a Bahraini indie-folk singer and songwriter.

Combining vocal hooks with guitar-driven melodies, Mo creates a soulful, upbeat sound with cracking, memorable choruses, whilst his lyrics evoke feelings of wanderlust and draw heavily on transient experiences. The music is brought to life by talented, highly experienced musicians - some of whom have recorded for and toured with First Aid Kit, Angus & Julia Stone and Hurts.

Mo Zowayed and his band have toured the USA, which was sponsored by Red Bull and have opened for major headliners including The Tedeschi Trucks Band, UB40, and Kool & The Gang. In early 2017, Mo was one of the headline acts at Bahrain’s pre-eminent musical event, The Spring of Culture, sharing the stage with artists such as Tom Jones.

Having been a successful support act for Jools Holland on his 2016 and 2017 tour (which saw Mo play at the Royal Albert Hall in London) he will again support Jools in December 2019 at the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena, and the Manchester O2 Apollo.

Mo is currently recording his second EP, which is set for release late 2019.
