Young Mexican-American singer from Indiana, Omar Apollo creates his own smooth and soulful mix of jazz, R&B, funk, soul and pop, sung in both English and Spanish. Taking in influences from D'angelo and John Mayer to Paul Simon and Gary Numan, he cites James Blake’s haunting minimalism, The Internet’s modern R&B, and Sly and the Family Stone’s vintage Funk as his main musical guides.
"In times of political unease, the power of swoony, soulful music cannot be overstated. Thus enters Omar Apollo, the Mexican-American who makes love songs that pull you in like a billowing dream" - The Guardian.
