Citing influences such as Stevie Wonder and Jamiriquai, Omarr Awake creates music infused with pop, soul and jazz elements. His creative songwriting mind has been toiling away on new compositions during recent years as a backing musician. Now, he's back on the road as a solo artist and looking ahead to an upcoming recording session.
Just settling into Dallas after years of residing in Austin, Omarr is touring with a new set of songs, and is interested in seeing what works and what doesn't in front of audiences before he takes the songs into the studio. Awake will make local stops in Dallas and Greenville over the coming days, and spoke with Matt from the road.
