“When I grow up, I wanna be like Omar” Stevie Wonder

“Still ...one of the best voices I’ve ever heard” Erykah Badu

Stevie Wonder, Angie Stone, Syreeta Wright, Common, Estelle, Incognito’s Bluey Maunick, Erykah Badu, Carleen Anderson, Caron Wheeler, Leon Ware, India Arie, Lamont Dozier, Zed Bias, Pino Palladino, Roger Sanchez, Guru & Jazzmatazz, Maddslinky, Kele le Roc, Mario Biondi - all these people have one thing in common - all are admirers of, and past collaborators with the truly unique, gifted, original artist... British soul pioneer Omar.

The musical history is renowned and the Lyefook 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.

Samia Lye-Fook (Omar’s sister) is a highly regarded vocalist in her own right, and BRIT School alumni. Omar's younger brother, the Grammy winning producer, remixer and DJ professionally known as Scratch Professor has been making jaws drop since stunning the crowd at the 1988 DMC UK Finals with his turntablist skills at the age of 13!

And of course, let's not forgot their big brother... Omar.

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.
