The Wrong Omar is a local artist more formally known as Joey Shaheen. His acoustic and electric music style will give you a taste of multiple genres in one such as folk, jazz, and a little rock.
He’s touring this year, and has made many live radio appearances around Minnesota!
This is a review from the Twin Cities Daily Planet : "...They're three pieces—two acoustic guitars, percussion. One fellow is fiddling with sweet-sounding major-seven chords while the engineer fiddles with microphones and wires. At length, The Wrong Omar open with a tune that utilizes the chord progression that guy was playing. It's beautiful with a strong, pointed chorus that compels with engaging urgency....when it hits, it's dead-on, brilliantly inspired....Excellent songwriting. Warm, wry melodies over bright, moody chords...."JULY 10TH- Felonious Bosch
