Nadir Omowale says
For the first time in nearly a decade, 13-time Detroit Music Award honoree and former Nashville resident Nadir Omowale returns to the Music City with his powerful band of A-list Motor City musicians. Their Mission: to baptize Nashville with THE FUNK.

PLUS: Stellar Nashville Soul Hop emcee Just One premieres new material from his latest album.

“To label Nadir as a neo-soul artist would be neglecting his rock roots; to call him a rock artist would be overlooking his hip-hop and jazz influences. Fully encompassing all the talents that Nadir Omowale possesses would be comparable to expanding the mathematical term Pi to its last digit.” – The Michigan Chronicle, Detroit, Michigan

For the first time in nearly a decade, 13-time Detroit Music Award honoree and former Nashville resident, Nadir Omowale, returns to the Music City with his powerful band of Motor City A-list musicians. Their Mission: to baptize Nashville with THE FUNK.

The East Tennessee native and MTSU graduate was a fixture on the Nashville and Murfreesboro rock and soul scenes throughout the 90s playing and recording with bands like Me Phi Me, Dancing With Ellie, Jack Johnson, Serious Need, These Are Houseplants, Sherri Sweet’s Stone Garden and as a solo artist under his former name, Kurtis McFarland. Nadir moved to Detroit in 1999 and quickly became a leader in the music community there by laying down his own unique blend of guitar- driven funk, rock and Distorted Soul.

Over the past few years, the multi-instrumentalist has spent much of his time engineering, producing and collaborating with talent as varied as Roc Nation phenomenon Mayaeni, spoken word maven jessica Care moore, indie soul stalwart Amp Fiddler, Detroit techno legends Underground Resistance, Midwest Americana queen Jill Jack and a growing client base of young rock, pop, soul, hip hop and alt-country artists.

Nadir’s music represents the evolution and celebration of an ancient blues credo, in that it tells stories from the heart, for the heart. It is also a reflection of all that is funky and joyful. The soulful vocals wrap up the entire package for an unforgettable listening and live experience. Join Nadir as he continues his journey down the road of honest and contemplative song crafting, conveying to us all just the right helping of magical, musical soul food at exactly the right time.

“[Nadir Omowale’s music is] STONE COLD FUNK, It makes you DANCE, It ROCKS your world, It’s got GREAT LYRICS, It’s got POWERHOUSE SOUL SINGING, It’s got GREAT MUSICIANSHIP, It makes you THINK about the world and it makes you SMILE.” - Soul-Patrol.com
