Join SCC for a virtual performance and Q&A session with R&B powerhouse and Indiana native Omar Apollo.

“Apollo’s music stands out in the generosity of his lyrics and the vulnerability of his performance.” – ROLLING STONE

In just a few years time · Omar Apollo has gone from teenage strummer to one of the most hotly-tipped R&B artists of his generation. The Indiana-raised Mexican-American singer-songwriter picked up a guitar at the age of 11 and never looked back. His success began when he had 3000 followers on SoundCloud and his friend paid him $30 to upload his music to streaming services. His single “Ugotme” quickly gained traction · and to date has accumulated over 30 million streams in the US across all platforms.

After two back-to-back sold-out headlining tours · memorable festival appearances at Camp Flog Gnaw and Lollapalooza · and a network television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers · the now 23-year-old Apollo has transitioned from the freeform D.I.Y. creativity of those beloved earlier records towards a more focused development of his sound. He’s making deeper connections between his music and his Latin roots while laboring over each song in ways he never would’ve before. Part redefinition · part enhancement · the autobiographical new material he’s been working on for his upcoming projects promises to bring him to another level in his career.
