Creative Call Out | Damaris Mowatt

We’re supporting creatives like you to connect with who and what you need. We’re gonna feature local talent needing some know-how to get them to the next level. Let’s look out for each other. Keep dropping in to see who can help you. 

We’ll be talking to a new creative every week. This week we’re chatting with Damaris, a Coventry based singer, poet & creative writer. If you wanna work with Damaris, or get involved with a project get in contact with her @_damarez.mo_. 

Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?

My name is Damaris Mowatt and I am 18. I sing, write poetry, and write creatively. I have twin sisters, older by just 11 months. I try to not limit myself in terms of singing but my favourite is soul, folk, and RnB genres. Also, I live in Birmingham but study Youth and Education Studies at Coventry University. 


18 year old Damaris is from Coventry, and is a singer, poet & creative writer.

What do you think is missing in Coventry?

I had physical contact with people as well as face to face lectures once or twice a week during the first term. I also had Covid meaning I could’t work for the first week. Because I had assignments due, I had to apply for extensions. 

How were you missed 2020?

I missed out on spending time with my friends and wasn’t able to try different cuisines. Meeting international students as they couldn’t travel to the university was another with I missed out on. This is something I really wanted so I could make stronger friendship groups. I missed out on having my own independence because of staying at home. I feel like I missed out on the ‘university experience’.
