Apollo’s latest album explores love and heartbreak. He candidly shares, “I’m still really in it,” referring to the relationship that inspired the album. This vulnerability, a hallmark of Apollo’s music, often encompasses love’s melancholic and intimate aspects.

Despite the emotional weight of his music, Apollo maintains a light-hearted perspective, admitting that some tracks reflect his more carefree, less committed side.

Hailing from Hobart, Indiana, a small town where challenges were abundant, Omar Apollo discovered solace and a means of self-expression in music. The strong work ethic instilled by his parents and the grit he developed through early jobs ignited a passion within him to create music.

Looking back on his humble beginnings, Apollo fondly remembers the lively mariachi sounds that filled his community and the early songwriting sessions with his cousins, experiences that laid the groundwork for his artistic path.

As Omar Apollo embarks on his most ambitious tour to date, traversing multiple countries and states, he takes a moment to introspect on how his life experiences have influenced his music and sense of self. When he takes the stage to perform his emotionally charged tracks, he finds that the feelings flow into the music. “It just turns into a song,” he says.

Despite the deeply personal nature of his work, he derives joy from performing and forging connections with his audience, finding a sense of release and community in the shared experience.
