How does Xavier Omär want to be remembered? As a risk taker. A classic voice. An artist who blurs musical lines. A fearless dreamer. And with these big goals, the singer-songwriter isn’t wasting any time. His EP with Sango titled Hours Spent Loving You and The Everlasting Wave are bringing critical acclaim from fans and the industry. In December 2017 Xavier wrapped his first national headline tour, the sold out Pink Lightning Tour.
Xavier takes pride in his songwriting ability and is most excited by the reward of evoking specific feelings in his listeners with his music. He draws inspiration from artists of all genres, including James Blake, Anderson .Paak, Pharrell, and Kanye West.
Xavier Omär grew up moving across the country and as far as Japan, but he claims San Antonio, Texas as home. Music balanced out the highly structured lifestyle of his military family, as his mother and siblings sang and played drums and piano, and his father was a writer, producer and the minister of music at church. He wrote and produced his first song at 12 years old, recording it in his basement on a 4 track tape recorder. In 2012, he hit the ground running with his solo career and hasn’t stopped since.
