Grace Weber’s Music Lab w/ The O’My’s
January 25, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm
About The O’My’s:
Comprised of two gifted musicians, The O’My’s channel their experiences and perspective into gritty, polished music that grabs listeners with its sound, and holds them with its content. Nick Hennessey and Maceo Vidal-Haymes, two Chicago natives, man the keys and guitar respectively, with Maceo handling vocal duties. Maceo, a master writer, pens all lyrics himself, leading to emotion laden songs that resonate deeply with listeners. Constantly evolving with their sound, the duo have grown and progressed with each one of their projects, pushing their boundaries and challenging themselves with each release, and their new album ‘Tomorrow’ is no different.
