Neo-soul, hip-hop, electro, jazz-fusion, funk, reggae....genres dissolve at the flood of groove that is The OM Sound. Founded in BC and based in Montreal, their mesmerizing music continually pushes instrumental and lyrical boundaries.
Their music is inspired by a socially, environmentally, and spiritually conscious message, conveyed through soul stirring lyrics and rich soundscapes, wrapped up with in-the-pocket beats and blow-your-mind bass lines.
Redefining the term “power trio,” The OM Sound sounds more like a hip-hop orchestra than a three piece band. Technical drumming is paired with live electronic percussion, synthesizers, shredding keyboards, and crunchy guitar. Hip-hop verses empower the people and bold, sultry harmonies contrast with rolling didgeridoo rhythms and deep dubby bass lines. The creative use of loop pedals adds yet another layer to their sound.
