Omar Pedrini



Omar Pedrini was born in Brescia on May 28, 1967. He makes himself known in the musical environment for being the leader of Timoria from the beginning to the indefinite break announced by the group in 2003. However, he has numerous activities outside the band, starting with artistic direction since 1997 of Brescia Music Art, festival of contamination between the arts.
His solo debut was in 1996, with BEATNIK, released when his band was in full swing. In 2004 VIDOMAR comes out, anticipated by the participation in Sanremo with the song “Lavoro useless”.

In June 2004, on the eve of the tour, Pedrini suffered the rupture of an aneurysm and was hospitalized and urgently operated. The convalescence of the disease took him away from the scene for some time: he began to deal with music again in 2005, appearing in summer festivals, and directing the Valtrompia MUSIC Art festival.

After engaging in parallel activities (television author, lecturer at the Master in Musical Communication of the Catholic University), Omar returns to the music he played in 2006, starting to work on a new record. BREAD, BUTTER AND MEDICINE sees the light in May 2006, published by the historic Carosello label.
In 2009 he made a song for the soundtrack of the film by Pupi Avati “The youngest son” in which he also plays a cameo. On June 23, 2010 a new album called LA CAPANNA DELLO ROCK ROCK is released, a sort of collection with two unreleased tracks. Three years later, CHE CI VADO A FARE A LONDON? Is released, released in January 2014 and anticipated by the single of the same name.
