“Originally from Buffalo, New York, the young Omeri Monroe III passes a turbulent youth in his neighborhood, rocked by the radio that pours all the classics of R ‘n’ B and pop that his mother listens with passion . It does not take long for the kid to be won by the virus of music, to the point of trying his luck at an audition for the program America’s Best Dance Crew. This experience spurred the budding musician who took a guitar, paper and pencil and lay on the score his first album “Day dream’n” .
The label “Three 2 Go Music” includes the funk and pop potential hidden in this project and gives Omeri a chance to play in the international music competition with this first effort already full of promises. With the help of Tim Webb (drums), Frank Nicastro (guitar), Tony Derosa (guitar), Paul Yates (bass), Adrian Lewis and Tonya Williams (chorus), the young Omeri released a short album surrounded by funky classicism And R ‘n’ B inherited from John Mayer, Darius Rucker, Gavin Degraw or Lauryn Hill.
Freshness and finesse are what characterize the songs of “Day dream’n” , Whose beach-right relaxes the nerves from the start. We will find this song in a longer version at the end of the album, probably to plug a little the voids of this little album which actually contains only six tracks. In the same relaxed and carefree genre, “Guess I’ll be waiting” convokes a funk not far from Marvin Gaye or Al Jarreau. “Read you mind” accelerates the rhythm but does not lose the ambient good mood of the album. Omeri’s clear and fine voice gives character to these dainty and happy pieces, which also cultivate a certain gravity on the slower tempos of “Do not look for me” or “One night” .
This first album, Omeri brings together the classical elements of R ‘n’ B, before this genre is overwhelmed by the vulgar horrors and have you seen me in recent years. Here we find the dignity of the great ones, Al Jarreau, Al Green or George Benson.”
