About Omari

Electric Guitarist
Slough
I am a Multi-Instrumentalist, Session Musician, Composer and Music Producer from Slough, Berskhire.

From a young age, Omari has always enjoyed music, having being part of a family where music was a big part of their lifestyle. Despite this, Omari never got involved in music until his mid-teenage years, which was when he became inspired and influenced by various hip hop/reggae/r&b artists and music films which were popular at that time. With that he often found himself messing around with lyrics and experimenting with DJ software but never took it seriously. In 2006 Omari discovered a music production software/DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) called FL Studio which opened his eyes up to music production and in a short space of time he learned the software and began producing music. While producing music Omari often could hear musical ideas in his head which at the time he was unable to compose due to his lack of musical ability and knowledge. This soon led to him teaching himself a few chords at a time on the piano in order to create musical progressions, which then led to him being able to play the piano to an exceptional standard. In 2007 after leaving school Omari had realised he was passionate about music and he began to share his music with friends in order to gather opinions and would find himself spending over four hours a day making music. This was when he started to take music seriously. While still producing music and perfecting his craft he very soon picked up the guitar, drums, bass and percussion and began playing music in a local church, which was were he began perfecting his skill as a musician and became confident performing in front of audiences. In more recent years Omari has also taught himself Chinese Flute (Dizi), Western Concert Flute, Ukulele and learned to sight-read music. As of current Omari frequently does session work, gigs and produces music for various artists and occasions.

Omari is an incredibly driven and dedicated musician, with an ability to pick up and perform any song you throw at him. I was extremely lucky to have him as part of my band, and it made me feel very reassured with any gigs I was doing. Omari was always on time to rehearsals, focused and always giving 100%. Not only this, but he visibly enjoys himself so much and spreads this positivity to others. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Omari has accompanied me on various gigs up and around London many acoustically picking up every song I throw at him he's devotion to different sounds enables him to creatively fuse many instruments he plays live creating super cool productions and all round listenable soundtracks, He's amazing to work with really easy going and an absolute pleasure to know!
