From Buffalo, New York, Omeri is a singer-songwriter who took his musical inspiration from R & B and pop songs of the fifties. His mother and grandmother were always playing those hits on the radio in their home.
The local record label Three 2 Go Music “gave him the opportunity to put his compositions in the form of an album.” The artists who have most strongly influenced his musical choice include Lauryn Hill (of ‘The Fugees’), John Mayer and Darius Rucker, and the charismatic frontman of the American rock band “Hootie & The Blowfish. These influences can be heard in the eight songs Omeri recorded for “Day Dream’n,” which, as the album’s title track, was released as the first single and can be seen and heard in the accompanying video.
We hear some catchy melodies and great vocals on the tracks of this barely 27-minute debut. “Guess I’ll Be Waiting” is infectious both in dance rhythm in terms of sing-along, and that actually applies equally to the rocking “Read Your Mind”.
Also on this record we hear two different versions of the same songs, with title track “Day Dream’n” and the love song “One Night” which has now also been released as a single. In the quiet acoustic R & B song “Do not Look For Me” we can actually hear the best of this artist’s vocal abilities.
“Genuine Love” is in our opinion the least powerful song on this album, but it can be regarded more as a secondary edge remark, because we think this young guy Omeri has a lot of surprises in store for us and that we will probably experience him again soon.
