Omar Apollo Delivers Brilliant New EP Friends

If you’re a fan of John Mayer, you’re going to find yourself quickly falling in love with singer-songwriter Omar Apollo.

While the career of this young up and coming bilingual star has only spanned the course of two years, Apollo, a first-generation Mexican-American, is already turning heads in the alternative scene with a compelling, cutting-edge sound brimming with genuine emotion.

This week Apollo released his new EP Friends, the follow up to his critically acclaimed 2018 debut EP Stereo. The uber addicting seven-track collection incorporates satisfying sonic elements from a variety of genres, including funk, soul, jazz, and pop, and explodes with vibrant creativity, finding the perfect balance of funky feel-good vibes and sensitive moments while showing off the true brilliance of Apollo’s blooming artistry.

In addition to the tear-jerking title track, Friends includes the Prince-ified single “Ashamed” and the ethereal single “Trouble.”

Omar Apollo is currently preparing to embark on his 28-date U.S. tour, which will kick off on April 18 in Miami, FL. Many major cities are already sold out. Check out the full list of dates here.
