Artist Bio:

Moshen Namjoo is an Iranian musician and singer-songwriter whose style is influenced by Blues and Rock as well as Iranian folk music.

The lyrics of his songs are a combination of Persian classical poems, his own lyrics, and contemporary poems; he uses the words freely with irony and sarcasm to carry the music and make a free style of singing. In 2008 Namjoo kicked off his first solo US tour, which granted him the Visiting Artist Fellowship at Stanford University. In 2010 he performed at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the Sony Center in Toronto, Canada and the Herbst Theater in San Francisco. “Trust The Tangerine Peel” is the latest album of Mohsen Namjoo which was released in May of 2014.
