OMAR JABER and 3STRIPE, “Anthem”
“Anthem” by Toronto singer/songwriter Omar Jaber and 3Stripe – which is the new project for singer/songwriter/producer Adam Bertucci – is edgy, alt.rock which is bound to catch the ears of new music listeners if you hear it on the radio. It does indeed have all of those anthemic qualities, including a gritty, unique vocal by Omar that weaves a story that you’ll want to hear more to get to know all of the words. The tempo is taut, with a lot of potential room for fist pumping, and the overall sound is tight, as reliable as Adam’s past productions, including “In The Mood”, which he co-wrote with fellow Torontonian Veronica and went gold recently in Belgium. “Anthem” is definitely one for college and alternative radio stations to get to know better with a potential for a long playlist life. It also comes to you as part of Omar’s recent self-titled EP.
