Watch : Omar Apollo unveils brand new single ‘Trouble’


Today, Omar Apollo returns to share a new single. “Trouble” is produced by Blake Slatkin and Omar himself, with additional production by Teo Halm and showcases the tender vocals and songwriting that is poised to elevate him into the mainstream with his new music to come. The new track is the first offering of new music from Omar following his contribution to the Skate Kitchen soundtrack with “Today” featuring Teo Halm, and builds on the success of his critically-acclaimed debut EP Stereo. The song’s heartfelt accompanying visual, directed by Aiden Cullen, follows the close relationship between Omar and his younger brother, as he contemplates the impact of his decisions through his brother’s eyes.

After dropping out of college only 2 weeks in, Omar Apollo, a 20-year old, first generation Mexican-American singer from Indiana, began writing and recording his own mix of jazz, R&B, funk, alternative, soul, and pop music.

Omar released his debut EP this past summer featuring songs in both English and Spanish
