OMNI – [Kevin Holliday]

OMNI is a coming together of all of my musical influences,” says Holliday. “Growing up in Bed-Stuy, I remember being at cookouts listening to things like Gap Band. I was a sponge when it came to all the music I heard around me. Artists like Prince and Rick James naturally became very formative for my sound. I wanted to create something that felt like my childhood, but was also uniquely me. “Dynamite” is a prime example of OMNI’s purpose in further telling my story” Kevin Holliday

Brooklyn native Kevin Holliday has released a fantastic new EP titled OMNI. With six songs total there is a short yet blissfully sweet assortment of sounds ranging from kaleidoscopic-funk, alt-indie and hip-hop. Holliday impressively self-mixed and self-produced the record, which speaks not only to his musical capabilities but also a sheer understanding of his own artistry. Truly showcasing his multi-instrumentalist identity, each offering contains its own layer of appealing qualities i.e. bumping basslines. addictive guitar elements & groovy song melodies. Vocally Kevin delivers impeccable performances track by track while conceptually providing detailed snapshots of fluctuating occurrences in his life. “Liar!” is my personal pick as a standout considering the (slower) vibe is much more varied compared to rest, but truthfully the other five songs are equally exceptional.
