The Twang Factor 3 presents: Salah Zhouri

Welcome to the third series of The Twang Factor. We’ve featured some fantastic new artists over the first two series and can promise that this series will be no different. We have some terrific acts to bring to you in the forthcoming weeks. If you enjoy them, which we are sure that you will, please do support them by leaving your comments below and visiting the artist links. One small change that we introducing this time is that the winning act and runners-up will be chosen by a panel of AUK editors and writers rather than by a public vote. 

Our first artist is Salah Zhouri, a folk singer-songwriter based in London who has been influenced by a bunch of folks ranging  from Bob Dylan to The Milk Carton Kids. Drawing from his influences, Salah has created his own unique sound. Fingerpicking is a big element in Salah Zhouri’s influences and he has developed his own unique fingerpicking techniques that make his guitar playing both fascinating and absorbing. Salah Zhouri’s voice is no less impressive than his guitar techniques. He has a very singular, original and fresh vocal style which gives him a particularly distinctive and recognisable sound. The song which Salah has recorded for us is called ‘I Wasn’t Made For This’.

My idea of a perfect day would be a new record arriving in the post in the morning, watching Ipswich Town win in the afternoon followed by a gig and a pint with my mates at night,
