Grammy Nominated artist/writer, Omniscient has been tremendously busy this year.  Rising to become one of Miami’s most established artists is not easy, yet Omniscient has achieved just that. He has earned the respect of his peers through his extensive resume which started off at local open-mics shows; shortly Hip hop began to take on a new form for OM, and it placed him as one of Miami’s most talked about performers.

In 2004, Omniscient started working on his crew, Flow Official’s E.P. Europe took notice that lead to a brief international tour, establishing great connections, Omniscient returned home with an even bigger vision of the future. However, in 2005 OM took a backseat when he was diagnosed with cancer.  He had to make a choice, knowing very well that time waits for no one, he placed everything on hold to undergo treatment, once he was given a clean bill of health he returned a year and a half later  going in full throttle.

2008 After connecting with Locos por Juana, OM, showcased in some well-respected venues, and festivals which later lead to a GRAMMY nomination. Hard work truly pays off.  His collaboration ‘La Verdad LP’ released by Universal/Machete was nominated for Best Latin/Alternative album of the year.   Omniscient has opened up for legendary artists such as Earth Wind & Fire, Gangstarr, Ludacris, Smiff & Wesson, Tego Calderon, The Roots and countless of other acts.  The man is a force to be reckoned with, and it comes as no surprise that he has pulled yet another successful year in 2013.

You can see OM performing live  on Saturday, August 17, 2013 when he opens up for Mobb Deep at the Stage  in Miami, tickets are on sale now. Also don’t forget to stop by his page to listen to his latest single out today called, “Grape Dutch”.

CasaIdeas!


CasaIdeas hosted their first annual Bloggers Event this past Saturday at the Shops of Sunset Place.  It was the perfect Fall morning to say the least, and I couldn’t think of a better way to start the day then window shopping! I began my morning with some fresh coffee, and a small little tweet saying “I was on my way” by the time I arrived a mob of  Autumn colors and warms smiles greeted me at the door.  One smile in particular stood out the most, and it was delivered by the lovely Amanda, the person in charge of the social marketing aspect of the company.  Jorge the  floor manager welcomed the Miami local bloggers with cold water and goodies bags.  He also gave us a tour of Casaideas while explaining the essential parts of the company piece by piece, wall by floor, and what inspired the ideas for this Falls collection.  The designers of the store decided to take a walk on the wild side by heading into the forest to gather ideas for what turned into their most enchanting and realistic interpretation of what ‘El Bosque” (the Forest) should look and feel like in someone’s home.

Dropped by Tobacco Road

I know that big music names are a good emotional investment. You can always count on them to be there for you when you need it, on the radio, on the television, on some tour coming to your town. But the ones that I’m finding some really good music therapy relief in are the local bands in Miami. Friday night I found myself at Tobacco Road to support my favorite Miami band 7 Seas, and what I encountered was that Spanish rock music is pretty freaking awesome. Have you heard of Avenida Zero? No, well then what are you waiting for?
