Detroit Free Press: For Detroit musician Nadir, it ‘all comes from the funk’

Nadir_Nader_door-ENT-IMG-7733Originally published in the Detroit Free Press

The multifaceted music of Nadir Omowale is rooted in funk, but it always expands. It takes on the vibes of soul, R&B, rock, dance-pop and mashes it into a diverse blend that’s built on emotion: celebratory sing-alongs, cathartic, guitar-heavy head-bangers and poignant ballads bared with thought-provoking social commentary.

But over the past few years, the Tennessee raised multi-instrumentalist has spent much of his time engineering, producing and collaborating with talent as varied as RocNation phenomenon Mayaeni, spoken word maven jessica Care moore, indie soul stalwart Amp Fiddler, Detroit techno legends Underground Resistance, Midwest Americana queen Jill Jack and a growing client base of young rock, soul, hip hop and even country artists.

Inspiración: Lisa Luevanos Mural Dedication in Southwest Detroit

On December 19 we were honored to attend the dedication of a serape mural created by our good friend and client, Lisa Luevanos in Southwest Detroit. As she told the Detroit News:

Luevanos calls the viaduct mural Inspiración, or inspiration, in Spanish. Her inspiration was her mother and grandmother, both artists, and this mosaic is a fitting tribute to her roots. But she also hopes the piece will inspire everyone who passes by — and that’s a lot of people on this busy thoroughfare. “What I want you to take away is a moment of happiness,” she said. “When people look at it, it makes you happy.”

Congratulations on this fantastic gift to your community, Lisa!
