I have been so overwhelmed with the positive feedback I am receiving from frands and music blogs. You all have made all the long nights spent over the course of 2.5 years working on this album worth it! Check out some of my favorite reviews below:
I hope you guys are enjoying listening to my new album Soundproof! While working on the album booklet with my brother (who is a very talented graphic designer!) we realized that the original ‘Thank You’ note that I’d written was too long, and we had to shorten it to make it fit. The original note had personalized thank yous to very special people to my heart. I’m posting the original ‘Thank You’ note after the jump. Thank you all for all your love & support!
As I’m finally wrapping up the album after 2 and a half years of work and listening to all the songs back-to-back, I realized how much of myself I reveal on this album. I also noticed a subconscious pattern that connects all the songs together. This pattern touches on so many social issues like feminism, guilt, and shame. If anybody asks me “Who is Omar?” I would tell them to listen to this album and they would find all the answers that they need. It is me telling my truth with utmost honesty and transparency.
Streaming live chat with all my friends/fans to celebrate the release of ‘Soundproof - Part One’. I will be performing songs from the new album acoustically + chatting to all of you. You can tell me what you think of the new album as well. ;)
I have missed you all so much and I can’t wait to talk to you! The chat will start at 8 pm GMT (London time) on Wednesday, November 7th. It will take place at the following places:
This is definitely a moment to remember for me! It’s actually DONE. Soundproof Part One is complete and I am so excited to listen to all the songs in one go for the first time. I remember when Resurrected was done and I felt this incredible relief and joy. This feels like that all over again.
