Omar Garcia - An Unprecedented Talent & Unique Artist


This multitalented artist, who packs an unprecedented lyrical ability, OMAR GARCIA, is here to fill a void that has haunted the music world for a long while with a genuine, creative and transparent proposal. "OMAR GARCIA" is his self titled debut album that hits stores today. This album is a body of work that rattles our expectations, opens our minds and guides us through a journey that will take us to the multiple corners of the artist' soul.

"QUIEN SOY" (WHO I AM) is the first single, a record of his own writing that is driven by a lyrical content that is deep and poetic, but specific and straight forward in its references. In this track the young Puerto Rican poet explores society's immobility, it's resistance to move ahead, to get over old prejudices and stereotypes, a world obsessed with labeling people and constraining them to limited standards and small boxes.

OMAR GARCIA is well known in the "urban" world for his unique ability to switch from Hip Hop to Trip Hop, from House Music to R&B, from Pop to Rock, injecting all this influences with a cleverly poetic lyrical content: deep and fearless, intelligent and stylish, always driven by a very coherently expressed social-political message.

OMAR GARCIA is an artist that breaks any type of mold or stereotype with a distinctive, unique sound that comes as a direct result of almost two decades of a relentless work ethic, non stop production, practice and study. This passion for his craft was what got him on stage at the early age of 14. Before becoming a soloist, OMAR was one half of a duet called OGM & Oakley with which he journeyed for six years, participated in various music videos alongside other artists from the urban genre, he got his first dose of radio and television, toured all around Puerto Rico endless times, traveled to the United States and Dominican Republic, and participated in more than 15 compilation albums such as: DJ Adam Mad Jam 1 y 2 , El Cartel de Yankee, Eddie Dee: El Terrorista de la Lirica, OGM y Oakley Preparados, and much more.

Without a doubt OMAR GARCIA has arrived in the music scene with a strong musical backbone, with a clear and consistent message, with a unique, original, and unprecedented proposal determined to shake things up. OMAR GARCIA has come to revolutionize the urban genre!
