Odette Mercy and her Soul Atomics are the real deal! Take Motown, Verve and Stax, shake’em up and add a little grit… and then a little more grit… Odette is a unique soul sister who brings the heavyweights of soul together and will be headlining the Omeo Stage on the Sunday with the Indian Ocean behind her.
Grab a bite to eat from the food trucks close by, a refreshing late arvo drink at the bar and then get ready to dance.
ABOUT ODETTE MERCY & HER SOUL ATOMICS
Super tight, dynamic and with a reputation for one of the best live shows in WA, 6-piece soul act Odette Mercy & Her Soul Atomics are like a gritted up old Stax record come to life. OM&hSA have been no stranger to life’s lessons and heartbreak. Entwined with a pervasive thread of social commentary, their experiences and reflections form the foundation for their writing; songs which are brutally honest, but tell a personal story of love and life through soul-filled heavy groove.
Odette Mercy and her Soul Atomics have a list of nominations under their belt. From WAM(West Australian Music) awards in the Urban Music category in 2017/2016/2015/2014/2013/2011 to their recent national nomination in NLMA(National Live Music Award) for Best RnB/ Soul Act 2018/ 2017/2016, and then to‘Ofa’s nomination in the state rounds for Best Live Voice. 2018 saw OM&has take out WAM for Best Urban and Odette Mercy took out Best Vocalist.
This is the original music project of Johnny Nandez and Odette Mercy. Booking their very first gig in 2008(a month-long weekly residency) without a single song written, resulted in a 6-piece soul ensemble complete with guitar, rhythm section, horns and two sets worth of original songs. It was a long-time ambition for Nandez and the first foray into fronting an original band for Mercy.
