Ode To Omni
Stemming from the city of Philadelphia, Ode to Omni is a contemporary collective lead by Marcus Myers in collaboration with 16 artists. Unlike a traditional music group, OTO is a transformative project that continuously incorporates new instrumentation, sounds, and genre types. The result is a blend of music that appeals to various tastes but carries a continual concept and drive.
During the fall of 2011, Marcus Myers endured an injury that caused him a hiatus from playing music. This period, as Myers recalls, was a period of both pain and growth. During time away from his instrument, Myers composed through reflection, maturing, and enlightenment. As an outcome of personal development and a devotion to omnipresence (God), Ode to Omni was assembled.
With unique backgrounds of training, experience, and musicality from the artists under OTO, the collective builds a powerful message of inspiration and spiritual growth. The project is driven by the significance of self-reflection, challenge, and the joy that can allow listeners to connect to something beyond musical notes.
Full-band project from Philadelphia singer-songwriter, Ryan Weidman.
