Lately, several people from Charlotte, NC have been emerging on my radar and one has resonated a little bit more than the others. One of them is a Pop/R&B recording artist that is rocking tunes that will get you wanting a little more every time you press play.
This Philadelphia native will sneak his tunes to your body bringing you to rock with the beat. Omar A definitely knows what he is talking about when he sings “You Know Whats Comin,” but I must say I didn’t know what to expect. All I know is that I was left yearning for more, hence playing the song on repeat.
His greatest influence is the late Michael Jackson, the most innovative artist known to the world. His passion to Hip Hop also helped mold his artist’s identity to what he is as an artist today: from Jay-Z, Roc a Fella, The Notorious B.I.G., P. Diddy, and more. I also sense the pride that he upholds unquestionably by more than just embracing the power of music but through allowing himself, early on, to be influenced creatively through Boyz II Men and Jodeci. The balanced blend of his influencers and captivating voice translates his art in perfect harmony.
Omar A was introduced and exposed to music early on his life through his grandfather’s independent record label. He grew up listening to Marvin Gaye, Patti Labelle, Earth Wind and Fire. These rich compositions have moved him towards not only for his love of music but importantly his passion in creating and sharing his own masterpiece to the world.
Omar A recently announced that he signed a worldwide digital distribution deal with Pavement Entertainment, LLC, which is a Sony Red and MRI Entertainment authorized distributor. He is pursuing to launch and propel his full-length album titled “I’m Him” that will be released early in August of this year.
You may soon find him on iTunes, Amazon, and Rhapsody. Stay tuned for other digital stores.
