Omar has been at the forefront of UK Soul for more than a decade. Since his first smash – There’s Nothing Like This through his six studio LPs Omar has garnered much critical acclaim. Check out what he had to say to Alex Humphrey about what he has been up to for the past five years and how it was to work with Stevie Wonder.
Omar is most likely best remembered amongst the general populous for his timeless and still superb 1991 soulful hit, There's Nothing Like This. Astonishingly he has endured a five-year recording break during which time he has constructed his own studio and established his own imprint. He as ever has constantly been touring and for some, the master musician has never really been away. Now Omar is back with Sing (If You Want It) which is the British soul supremo's sixth and perhaps most smoothly produced album so far.
After a five-year recording hiatus - during which time he’s built his own studio, set up his own label and been touring like a madman – the one and only Omar is back. Always soulful and funky, this master musician has the ear and ability to both toch and move anyne who listens to him.
