Coming back from Michigan on Saturday right in time to perform with my sister Leila at The Westerleigh Folk Festival in Staten Island. Our set is at 6:00, but come earlier and check out some of the other amazing local bands! This event is free and child friendly (facepainting, games, children’s performers, and pony rides), so bring a blanket or chair and come hang out in the park with me! :)

Excited to be performing and speaking about musical activism at The Hero Roundtable in Flint, Michigan next Friday, September 19th!

Had a blast playing at Rockwood Music Hall with my sister Leila and my amazing band! We couldn’t have thought of a better way to spend our birthday. Thanks to everyone who came and to Dondre Green for taking these great photos! Special thanks for some of the beautiful gifts and cards we got from fans and friends alike. Totally didn’t see that coming - feeling so blessed. :)

Love,

O

Summer Music Update

Summer is here and there are some really exciting things coming up for my music that I’m thrilled to share with you!

1) Though I did not win the Masterpeace music competition (which would have allowed me to perform in Turkey this Fall), I was selected by the judges as a wild card pick and an honorable mention! Thanks to those who voted - the website was pretty tricky and I’m so grateful to the people who took the time to figure it out. 

2) I’m going back into the studio this month to record my next release! After several months of writing and composing, I have about 5-6 new songs that I feel are cohesive as an EP. Hoping to have a single and some video content ready soon, as well as a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for studio costs and touring! Stay tuned for more updates on that. :)

3) I have two free shows in NYC coming up (including one for my birthday)

4) East Coast tour dates are still being confirmed - but based on fan interaction, my first shows outside of the NYC area should be in Boston and Washington DC. I will also be in the Detroit area in September as a speaker/performer at The Hero Roundtable (similar to TEDtalks). If you do not live in the areas that I mentioned, I’d love to hear from you! I am booking venues and universities all around the country, and I’d love to perform in your town/city, post a successful Kickstarter campaign (knocks on wood).

I’m an indie musician, which means I am able to do what I do because of wonderful people like you. Any suggestions you may have, whether they are for venues, music blogs, and/or contacts/resources I should know about are so appreciated! Emails just saying hello are cool too (omniamusic@yahoo.com). :) 

Much love,

Omnia

All I really want to do for my birthday is play some music! My twin sister Leila (whose birthday is obviously the same day as mine), felt the same way. So we decided to do a joint show at one of the coolest venues in NYC and make it a party! 
Rockwood Music Hall, free, and you must be 21+ to get in (bring ID).
There will be great songs and cupcakes. RSVP on Facebook here: <3

I Don’t Need Your “Compliments”

I would like to walk on the street one day without being reminded of my sex by perfect strangers. 

No, I don’t take it as a compliment when you look me up and down and call me “sexy”. 

It wasn’t sweet when you called me “beautiful” either. 

You make me wish that invisibility cloaks were real. And then you make me angry for feeling as though I am the one who should disappear.

I am a female human. One with songs, and ideas, and an abnormal affinity for cookie dough ice cream. 

The classification of “female” says nothing about me. It’s just biology.

When you treat me like a female, you reduce yourself to nothing more than a male. You objectify us both. 

I only rolled my eyes at you when you commented on my appearance. But what I really wanted to do was to tell you that my presence does not warrant your evaluation.  

 Good day.
