JAmusic: How do you think a single such as “I Had Enough” will impact your growing fan base as well as attract new listeners?
OM: I genuinely believe that it may have an impact on many as well as attract new listeners simply because they all fully understand how it feels to have had enough. They might have all experienced the same at some point in their lives or have had to console a friend /relative. For that and/or others reasons they may gravitate to it.
JAmusic: Can you talk a bit about the inspiration behind the single as well as the impression you’d like listeners to have.
OM: Though I've had help writing the song, I'd say I was inspired by the ... courage that so many women, men too; had to muster before finally being able to say "I've had enough," and mean it. I'd like my listeners to always remember to believe in worth of self and allow the inner voice to influence their decisions. May they also always remember my message in the form of song when needed most.
JAmusic: What's the biggest risk you've taken artistically; one that went over surprisingly well and one that might've gone over people's heads?
OM: Making the first step was the most challenging. I'd not consider it a risk. I'd been longing to follow my dreams but the thought scared me immensely. After I had crossed the first hurdle I knew I'd have my work cut out for me. So I've since then been working on my craft, mentally as well. My first few however hadn't made an impact on most as I had hoped it would. I then researched and came to the realization that marketing plays a vital role in ensuring future projects does not go over the heads of the people.
JAmusic: Who's the artiste that keeps you on your toes? Pushes you to go harder?
OM: I'm inspired by far too many and have also a profund respect for those who've paved the way. I'm motivated by great work ethic and a lot of their examples. Believing that I too could be a motivator and influence another through music is what keep truly keeps me on my toes this pushing me to teacher harder.
JAmusic: When you got into the music business where did you think you'd be today or where did you see yourself fitting in at the moment?
OM: I am exactly where I need to be this present moment. I've been fortunate enough to have gotten approval from most engineers that I've work with and the fans who reached us thus far have also been accepting. I couldn't possibly be happier about how much I've grown and continue to.
JAmusic: What's one song that you hold close to you because of a particular line or better yet what's the most philosophical quote you've heard in a song that you hold close to your heart?
OM: “Each day I live, I want to be A day to give, the best of me I'm only one, but not alone My finest day, is yet unknown " always close to my heart. Especially because it's by one of my faves, the incomparable Whitney Houston. Even after a decade those words still linger. Utterly profound!
JAmusic: We live in an era where the average person's attention span is limited to what they want to see or hear. What are you doing differently that will hold their attention?
OM: I am a hard worker. That itself is an admirable quality. People appreciate you more when they can see that all you do is solely for them to love and embrace. (B) Everything under the sun has been done time and time again. However, I will twinkle amongst the stars.
JAmusic: What kind of future plans have you set for yourself as an artiste (to accomplish and maintain)?
OM: My goals are quite predictable. I,e be the absolute best that I can be, in all things that I do. Have tremendous success and growth (as an artist) and remain loyal/humble to my fans and loved ones.
JAmusic: What insight can you give on the power of music and its ability to communicate certain messages verbally and non-verbally? And what do you think your music represent?
OM: Science teaches us that music has enormous power. It quite possibly can play in role in health care. It can reduce stress as well as ease pain. The latter bit of that sentence I can attest to. I'm standing strong today because of music and for that I'd like to ensure that my lyrics can do the same for another human.
