The award winning ROOF GARDENS Live! WINTER SERIES A presents a Neo-Soul special with the Father of British Neo-Soul Omar and support from THE INCREDIBLE MISS Terri Walker...

OMAR

Designated by many as the father of British neo-soul (though his impact extends over to U.S. shores as well), singer/songwriter/producer Omar began as one of the U.K.'s most promising R&B hopefuls with his early-'90s international hit "There's Nothing Like This." However, unintentionally avoiding pop stardom, he chose never to compromise his artistic credibility, and because of that, people like India.Arie, Erykah Badu, Angie Stone, Gilles Peterson, and his biggest idol, Stevie Wonder, have all endorsed him as personal fans (with the prior three naming him as an influence). Although he gets thrown into the R&B category, Omar has no real definitive boundaries. In interesting new ways with each album, he has molded soul and urban music to fit his wide variety of influences, including ragga, hip-hop, funk, jazz-pop, rock, and Latin/Caribbean dance. Despite the lack of chart success, his original techniques have garnered him a strong legion of followers in the U.K. and a devoted fan base in diverse regions across the world.

"When I grow up, I wanna be like Omar" - Stevie Wonder
"Omar is one of my favourite artists.. ever" - Erykah Badu

TERRI WALKER

In 2003, Terri Walker took her native London with authority. Untitled, her Def Soul debut, featured 14 slices of hot-buttered neo-soul that relaxed comfortably between tradition and the latest thing; it was an immediate hit, and Walker soon found herself vying against Beyoncé Knowles for Best Album honors at that year's Music of Black Origin (MOBO) awards.

Walker studied opera as a child, and pointed to this training as reason for her fluid, effortlessly shifting vocal style. By 17, she was actively pursuing music. She had designs on a career as a soul singer, modeled after influences like Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, and Mica Paris. However, the big sound at the time was U.K. garage, so Walker found herself contributing vocals to tracks from types like Shanks & Bigfoot. All the same, she never lost sight of soul goal, and eventually hooked up with a stable of producers who were thinking the same thing. By 2002, traditionalism and organic sounds were making waves with hip-hop and urban soul audiences, and Terri Walker's sound fit right in. Untitled dropped in early 2003, featuring collaborations with Mos Def and Blueblood, and the accolades started rolling in.

Fab venue and really good night. Terri was amazing and was so down to earth, mingling with all and sundry after the event. Can't wait to get the album! Drinks were really pricey though - but to be expected. Definitely worth attending and I would return. Bea visited The Roof Gardens on 06 Jan 2016

What an excellent night, both Omar and Terri smashed it. They were Fantastic singing through their known tunes and upcoming tracks. Great atmosphere and event location both mingled with the crowd and showed true appreciation to the audience. Delphina visited The Roof Gardens on 31 Dec 2015
