Clashing more inventive textures than a blazed Anna Wintour, Osquello’s sonic palette mixes soul, jazz, hip-hop, and smooth, hardly-trying delivery. ~ NME
Born in Leeds and raised in london , the young vocalist and producer encapsulates a visionary approach far more nuanced than typically seen of a musician his age than his age. Informed by formative years spent studying his father’s music equipment and record collection, Osquello – birth name Fabiano Lewis – has cultivated an eclectic style built upon this widespread study and love of music in all forms. An autodidact in the purest sense, Osquello’s passion is self-evident. Osquello began his journey playing 500-1000 cap shows supporting the likes of Ratboy at the 02 Forum, PLK (french polish rapper)and Declan McKenna while producing and working with the likes of Bawo, Clairo, Brockhampton, Desta French and Nayana IZ. Jumping from Kerri Chandler to J Dilla, and everything in between, the 21-year old delivers a seamless array of genre through his music, all brimming with his own distinctive voice.
Releasing “Osqstock” mid-way through 2020, Osquello unleashed the fruits of six years worth of labour and love to the world. A vibrant carnival of sounds and influences, the album quickly caught the attention of none other than Goldie – the legendary British producer and Metalheadz record label boss – which culminated in a collaborative EP titled “Something Behind Me”. He ended the year selling out the iconic venue , jazz cafe , independently with no promoter or management . Osquello’s new album “Romero” drops in may 2022.
