Reverist is the musical creation of Omar Qazi, a full-time medical doctor who turned his creative outlet into a catchy, piano-driven, film-score-esque collection of songs.

While at the University of Central Florida in the mid-2000s, Qazi taught himself to play piano and guitar during his free time, never intending to write songs or pursue a musical career. But when he created the music to “Anaphase” while jamming in his dorm room, Qazi felt proud -- and thus penned more and more tracks over the next half decade in his various apartments. With his influences ranging from synth pop to alt-rock to hip-hop, Qazi eventually honed in on the sound he found on Forever Alight, which he released independently shortly after graduating medical school in the summer of 2013.

After coming back home to Orlando for his residency, Qazi set out to expand the project and met drummer, Steve Addington, after posting an ad on Craigslist. The two met up and had very similar mindsets on what they wanted to achieve together in addition to becoming close friends outside of the band. Addington has been involved with several other projects along the way, ranging from traditional bands to playing Top 40 covers alongside a DJ. While the duo has yet to record any songs together in the studio, Addington’s signature can easily be noticed in their live sets. The two are currently playing shows in the Orlando area and are still adding on members to the project.
