Following the success of their last single
‘Days With You’
, which racked up over 1 million streams, OMYO (comprised of William Edwards and Tom McCorkell) were ready to flex their production credentials, bringing their song writing to a new level. Mysterious Girl started life as a slow jam, written when the Will and Tom were sofa surfing at the group’s inception. The duo knew its potential as a more up-tempo dance number and worked in conjunction with North London DJ/producer VIHANI, (known for his work with All Saints and Wyclef Jean), to help take the track up a notch. The resulting mix was spotted by Accessorize using the track for their SS17 Festival Fashion TV Campaign, a music placement that recently featured in industry bible Music Week.
Completely independent, OMYO have previously enjoyed support from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, 1Xtra’s Charlie Sloth and the duo were picked as one of BBC Introducing’s “Hot pick for 2017”. OMYO performed very early on in their career at Wireless Festival on the same bill as Drake, A$AP Rocky & Labrinth. Other performances include headlining Nozstock’s BBC Introducing stage last year, and this summer countless audiences have caught the duo’s set at numerous festivals and various support slots for Sugarhill Gang, Soul II Soul and Jocelyn Brown around the UK.
OMYO (pronounced Ohm-Yo) are Tom McCorkell (vocals) and William Edwards (vocals & music) who have been making music together since deciding to follow through on a bet to write a song one New Year’s Eve. Edwards has modelled for magazines like ID, GQ, Vogue, Gay Times & Attitude plus brands like New Look, Nike, Blood Brother and many more. Having found their sound in a mix of infectious synth inspired pop-dance, OMYO’s music has been used in various adverts for New Look, Accessorize and CIFF x Lulu Kennedy in recent years.
