British soul pioneer Omar.
The musical history is renowned and the Lye-fook family has musical talent embedded deep in its DNA. Omar's father Byron worked as a studio musician and drummer with Bob Marley, Horace Andy and even The Rolling Stones.
Following on from 2013's album 'The Man' (his first for London based independent label Freestyle Records), 2017 saw the release of 'Love In Beats' - an album that further cemented his enviable reputation as an outstanding soul artist.
Omar Christopher Lye-Fook MBE, or Omar for short, is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and singer who continues to push back the frontiers of soul and rhythm and blues with his sensual grooves. Since building a name for himself in the early 90s with classics such as 'There's Nothing Like This', he has gone on to produce critically acclaimed new albums and make regular live performances including supporting the legendary Stevie Wonder at Hyde Park in 2016. As his career has progressed, Omar's material has become more diverse and varied; incorporating Caribbean rhythms with touches of funk, zouk, jazz and spoken word.
