Wendy’s and MySpace Records have teamed up to launch a new Internet series called “Fresh Faces.” Building on Wendy’s motto of ‘You Know When It’s Real,’ the ongoing Web program will include 9 episodes from three different emerging artists showing what a ‘day in the life’ of a budding new artist is like.
Each “Fresh Faces” artist will have its own 3 episodes than can be seen exclusively at www.myspace.com/wendys,
in addition to a 3-song EP available for free download on the site. A new episode will debut every Wednesday throughout the series.
The latest episode, featuring LA hip hop artist IamOMNI (www.myspace.com/IamOMNI) is up now at www.myspace.com/wendys. Previously featured was Charleston, SC alternative pop rock artist Friends For Hire (www.myspace.com/friendsforhire)
Stay tuned for new episodes on future “Fresh Faces” artists, including a Brooklyn based beat-pop band, all handpicked from MySpace Records’ Friends and Family, a group of developing artists MySpace Records helps market and promote.
IamOMNI is the microphone at the mouth of today’s young world. He voices their wants: love of self, the love of another; freedom of mind, freedom of lifestyle, the freedom of adventure and discovery; health and wealth, both financial and spiritual. He ponders their issues and anxieties - the paranoia that is a byproduct of this modern life of HIV and closed-circuit camera, the confusion of living in a world overflowing yet somehow empty. He lives their indulgences: weed, alcohol, cigarettes, sex, caffeine, fast food: a life of lows and highs. He preaches their values: loyalty, independence, dedication, determination.
IamOMNI's sound bridges genres from hip-hop to crunk, rock to soul, and his come-one-come-all attitude and embrace of all styles of music gives him an appeal that scores across the board, regardless of your age, ethnicity or musical taste. And even if you can’t understand a word he’s saying, his warm, deep vocal tone and steadfast adherence to the MC’s First Commandment (move the crowd) are guaranteed to keep his tune in your head way after the song’s over.
