Seyyed Mohammad Motamedi (Persian: محمد معتمدی; born September 24, 1978) is an Iranian traditional vocalist, and a ney player.

He started learning singing with his two elder sisters and also playing ney as self-taught since adolescence. He has studied "Film Directing" as his major in university. However, he has been singing and training since adolescence by listening to the works of maestros of Persian singing. Since 1997, he started learning singing style of Seyed Hossein Taherzadeh. Due to his interest in Isfahan school of singing, he learned this school of singing by practicing the songs of its maestros such as Taj Esfahani and Adib Khansari and has benefitted from guidance of esteemed masters such as the late Hossein Omoumi and Aliasghar Shahzeidi in this regard.

He has a resume ranging from working with the great maestros of Iranian music such as Alexander Rahbari, Mohammadreza Lotfi, Hossein Alizadeh, Majid Derakhshani, Farhad Fakhreddini, etc. as well as working with international figures and many performances in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Theatre de la ville, Muziekgebouw Amsterdam, etc. Recently,[when?] he collaborated with Roger Waters in an album by Trio Jobran called "The Long March".

He has been able to create his own dialect and original style of singing and therefore, currently[when?] he is regarded as the most characterful singer while being among the few best traditional singers.
