BIOGRAPHY

Omar Wilson is no stranger to the music scene and has been performing in NYC and CT clubs for over a decade. He’s opened for artists like Boys II Men and The Neville Brothers. Growing up in Norwalk CT Omar’s influences included Sam Cooke, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Lauren Hill, Mary J Blige and old-time soul acts like the Delfonics. His music speaks to his own personal experiences growing up in an urban environment bridging the gap between Hip Hop and Soul.

Growing up 30 minutes from New York City, church members at the Calvary Baptist Church in his hometown of Norwalk noticed his ability to have a spiritual impact through his singing at the age of only 7. While performing regularly in New York, fans gravitated towards his unique, gritty vocals. It was at that point that Omar realized what he was born to do, Soul Music. Omar is a 3-time Apollo winner and was named Best R&B Male of the Year for 2 consecutive years at the Underground Music Awards held at BB Kings in NYC.

Through his journey and struggles Omar has finally come to understand his role as one of the industry’s top new Soul singers. He’s recorded with Multi-Platinum selling artist Angie Stone and DMX featuring them on songs he wrote. The track he recorded with Miss. Stone is ‘Get to Know You Better.’ Angie Stone was quoted saying “Working with Omar Wilson came naturally and he is one to watch!” DMX is one of the only rappers to have 5 consecutive albums go number 1 on the Billboards and rarely recorded with singers. Omar and DMX released a single called ‘Faith’ and they connected on the track instantaneously which is audibly tangible.

Omar’s personality and voice is contagious. He leaves a long standing impressions wherever he goes, sings and with whoever he meets. Get ready to experience Omar Wilson as he is soon to release his New single “Passion” coming this fall.
