Odario is a storyteller, a hip-hop junkie and a lover of many musical soundscapes. He is embedded in the beat and submerged in the bass. His solo project expresses all of these qualities; tackling the many sides of poetry. Odario’s parents grew up in a small village in Guyana. The music will reflect the raw heat of South American villages as well as the unique and intimate migration to the north. Odario is known for his work in Grand Analog (as songwriter and frontman). His distinctive voice and insightful lyrics have been part of the Grand Analog sound since their debut album, Calligraffiti, in 2007.

As a performer and personality, Odario wears many hats and describes himself as a raconteur, an actor and a DJ. He’s currently hosting CBC Music’s afterdark program. Odario has also been featured on a number of other artist’s tracks including the Halluci Nation single Ba Na Na with Haviah Mighty. In 2020, he released his debut solo single, Low Light (In This Space), featuring Dawn Pemberton which received significant airplay on tastemaker Los Angeles radio station, KCRW. That same year, Odario also toured across Canada opening for Bedouin Soundclash and released his Good Morning Hunter EP. Produced and co-written by film composer Todor Kobakov, the EP was described as “cinematic hip hop.”

Always pushing himself creatively, Odario recently collaborated with Edmonton jazz band “with a beat aesthetic,” Good Information, and the results will appear on the first day of summer. New single and video, “Do Nada (Chaix Remix), will be released July 21st on The Confidence Emperors record label imprint.
