Omar Perry

Omar PerryBorn in 1968 in Jamaica, OMAR PERRY had the privilege to have as a father the legendary Lee « Scratch » Perry.He grew up seeing the greatest artists involved i the advent of reggae that could have had the benefit themselves of the genius of Lee Perry while recording at "Black Ark" studio : Max Romeo, Junion Murvin, Bob Marley and The Wailers.

While touring with Horace Andy in 2005, Omar met Guillaume « Stepper » Briard, a talented musician and producer, who saw in him the potential of the new generation. They decided to work together on the production of his first album « Man free » released in 2007 and followed by « Can't Stop Us » in 2009,
« The Journey » in 2011 and « Be Cool » in 2014.

After more than a decade going around European scenes with a rare energy and working side by side with the greatest stars including his father, Lee « Scratch » Perry, Omar Perry marks his return in 2018 with an album entitled « New Dawn ».
Omar takes a different path, with rhythms and lyrics more back to roots than ever. This singular album is simultaneously spiritual, disobedient and authentic.

Several video clips and singles are already available: « Living Legend [Jah Live] » and « Sound The trumpet Feat. Dub Inc ». The album released on May 25th 2018. To promote this new opus, you will find Omar Perry sur scène, together with his new musicians from Soulnation Band from April 2018, and in summer festivals. A nation-wide tour of France will take place in Autumn 2018.
