Omar ColemanChicago Blues Festival | Chicago, Illinois | 2016
“I am a blues guy with my feet in folk, rhythm’n’blues, soul, rock’n’roll, gospel, funk. The stuff I listened to growing up.” Omar Coleman indeed puts “a big dash of soul, something deep down in your bones, in your heart” in his harp and the lyrics he writes on his back porch in Chicago. A big splash of humor too. Still, Born & Raised on the West Side, he is “tryin’ to do right,” he screams – with respect to all the greats he listened to when he taught himself the harmonica.
