Omid Zohourian (born 22 October 1984) is a Persian singer, songwriter and guitarist who has recently moved to Australia in late 2012. He has had some commercial success in his home country of Iran and is now continuing his career in Australia. Omid began learning music and guitar at an early age with his teacher Reza Haghighi, who later became his best friend. He started playing acoustic and electric guitar for a couple of bands in 2006. Eventually, Omid and Reza started to collaborate and began to produce an album in 2007. In 2008 Omid released his first solo single Avare-ye-Ashegh (Homeless Lover), which hit the top 20 on PMC channel. This was followed by the successful single Royay-e-Man (My Dream) in 2011. In 2012, Omid released his first and only album, “Call My Name” . Omid’s main influence is rock, sometimes combined with electronica; you can hear these influences in the album. Some of his popular songs from “Call My Name” are Atash-e-Eshgh (The Fire of Love), Bavar Kon (Believe it) and Eshgh-e-Aroosaki (Empty Love). All of his songs have been written in Farsi so far - now he is working on his first English album.
