Gulf Weekly Spreading love with Music

Bahraini indie-folk singer and songwriter Mo Zowayed aims to spread positivity, love and feel-good vibes next month with the launch of his new album.

The 31-year-old musician, who can play a range of instruments including the mandolin, banjo, trumpet, ukulele, harmonica and guitar, wrote and co-wrote 10-upbeat songs for his new album entitled That Good Love.

According to the Bluegrass folk-style singer who switched to playing with an electric guitar instead of acoustic for this album, each song captures a significant moment in his life and of course the people and relationships he had during that time. 

“I think the overall message is about finding the silver lining in every experience,” said Mo, who lives in A’ali with his fashion designing wife Sally Bosson and two dogs. “I’m stupidly excited about this album! This record is very upbeat and soulful. As much as I love writing meaningful lyrics, I wanted every song to give you that warm fuzzy feeling from the very beginning, even if it’s playing in the background. 

“Honestly, I just want to make people feel good!  I want this album to be the one they stick on when they’re driving and for people to be moved by it when we play the songs live.”

Most of the album was recorded in his studio that he built in his home and some songs were recorded in 2Seas Studios.

He added: “The reality of recording an album is that it is all-consuming, but in the best way. I’d just like to thank my fans for believing in me for so long. 

“The months I’ve put into recording this album have been fueled by my wanting to give them all something amazing.”

It will be released digitally first on all streaming services such as iTunes, SoundCloud, Spotify and Anghami on November 25 with the physical album release soon after.

The CDs and vinyls will be available at Mo’s shows and from his webstore
