Omar Apollo has been serenading the country with his well-written love songs and one of a kind style. Currently on his latest tour, he’s returning to Chicago for the first time since his Lollapalooza set, coming to Concord Music Hall THIS Thursday, December 5th with Dijon and Silver Sphere for an unforgettable show .
Apollo was born in Hobart, Indiana where he grew up playing guitar and skateboarding. During his time at Indiana University Northwest, he dropped out after two weeks to focus more on the music he was creating. While working a few different jobs, Apollo started putting his music on SoundCloud and gained immediate traction. From there he released his mellow love song ‘Ugotme’ that demonstrates how well he can craft and produce music; the song was picked up by a Spotify playlist and reached 50,000 streams in one night.
His dreamy guitar EP, ‘Stereo’ was released shortly after and put the Indiana native on the map. Omar Apollo gained exposure through the DIY community and popular music outlets right before he began touring. One year later, Apollo put out yet another EP, ‘Friends,’ which shows off his growth as an artist even after a short amount of time.
Most recently, Omar Apollo released a song alongside Dominic Fike & Kenny Beats titled “Hit Me Up.” The song seamlessly blends the singers’ sounds together and demonstrates a brilliant collaboration.
Omar Apollo is also always connecting his music back to his Latin heritage. By staying true to himself and producing music he feels represents the culture he grew up in, he’s been able to become an inspiring voice for LatinX. Recently he released “Frio,” his first song written fully in Spanish that’s a brilliant, poetic ballad that outlines a love he once felt.
Joining Omar on December 5th is Dijon & SilverSphere. Dijon is no stranger to interjecting emotion into his music. Often times his songs make the listener feel a sense of nostalgia for someone they loved long ago. In his most recent track ‘Crybaby’ he sings about being an emotionally vulnerable person set to a stop motion sequence.
Chicago native, Silver Sphere will also be gracing the stage with her LCD System inspired pop hits. Through her music, she spreads a message of positivity and stays true to herself as well as her original sound.
You can catch Omar Apollo live at Concord Music Hall on December 5th with Dijon and Silver Sphere THIS Thursday, December 5th.
