After his thrilling concert here last year we are delighted to welcome back the ‘father of UK Neo Soul’ for what promises to be another incredible night of glorious music.
Omar has been one of the major voices on international soul scene for over two decades. With seven albums to his name – and over half a million record sales along the way, his massive and much-loved hit There’s Nothing Like This announced the arrival of a major new talent when it smashed it way through UK Singles Chart back in 1991. Encapsulating what was to become the new sub-genre of soul, his fresh sound combined Latin, funk, reggae, soul, jazz and orchestral arrangements and established him as a major player on the neo soul scene
Always pushing the boundaries of soul music, over the years he’s worked with artists as diverse as Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, Kele Le Roc, Angie Stone and Common. His recent album Sing (If You Want It) is considered to be a modern soul classic. In 2006, the Urban Music Awards presented Omar with the Best Neo Soul Act and Outstanding Achievement Awards. In 2011 he was nominated as Best UK R&B/Soul Act at the MOBOs and this year he received an MBE for his outstanding services to music.
Touring on the back of forthcoming album The Man (featuring guest artists Zed Bias, King P, Dru & Perez and Live Tropical Fish), we are delighted to welcome this major name in British Soul to The Band.
Support tonight from Pieces of a Man – the fantastic 5-strong R&B/soul outfit from Manchester who draw their inspiration from the vaults through to the present day neo-soul heavyweights.
