Omega is an eclectic female singer-songwriter and performance artist from Toronto, ON with a distinctive lower- register and an amazing skill for arranging. Her sound is a fusion of R&B/hip hop and dancehall. She began to perfect her artistic craft from the age of 4 training in classical piano and by age 9, she furthered her love for music and performance with formal vocal lessons and dance training in tap, ballet, dancehall and hip hop. Her early years include opening for acts such as Danny Fernandes, and performing as a dancer with the South African cast of Umoja at Toronto’s Elgin Theatre.
Most notably, her latest singles “Whine Masta” and "Nostalgia" have been hitting the airwaves. You may even recognize her voice from feature hit single “Wishy Washy”, as featured on sister Haviah Mighty’s Polaris award winning album. Or you may have come across her viral wedding dance performance video floating around on YouTube, with over 1.5 million views.
You can expect her live performance to encompass smooth sultry vocals, vibrant movement and a militant aura. As an integral member of Mighty Gang, Omega wears multiple hats bringing together energetic stage performances as singer-songwriter, producer, and creative director.
