Singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Omar Velasco’s music draw from a broad range of influences; it pays homage to the greats of the past – like Stevie Wonder, Shuggie Otis, Joni Mitchell, and Milton Nascimento – while avoiding the triviality of nostalgia.  It allows the richness of music from around the world – across eras and genres – to give it depth and diversity while maintaining clarity and poignancy.  It is music that is difficult to classify, yet has a familiarity that is easy to digest.  Velasco’s productions possess a transcendent quality that transports the listener to distant and beautiful landscapes, while the lyrics anchor the song in the simple, heartfelt poetic ground.

Based in Los Angeles, Omar Velasco has toured and collaborated with artists such as Jonathan Wilson, Jim James and My Morning Jacket, Gardens and Villa, and many others.
