Omar Apollo (born Omar Velasco) is a 22-year old, first generation Mexican-American singer from Indiana, who began writing and recording his own mix of jazz, R&B, funk, alternative, soul, and pop music from an early age. The DIY pop auteur fuses the sultry sounds of Prince and D’angelo with Mexican soul and traditional corridos to beguiling effect. Citing influences including: Benny Sings, Los Panchos, John Mayer, Elliott Smith, Cuco Sánchez, Paul Simon, Gary Numan, and João Gilberto, the self-taught singer songwriter released his first single ‘Ugotme’ in 2017 which went viral overnight and marked Apollo out in the new generation of artists to watch. Two subsequent EPs have followed along with back-to-back sell-out headline tours throughout North America, making him one of the most exciting acts breaking out of the States right now.
Local Hong Kong fans now have the chance to catch this exciting, new talent, live with his full band as he makes his debut in the territory as part of his very first Asian tour.
