Born and raised in Coastal Massachusetts, Oomah migrated to Denver in 2011. The sonic landscape that Oomah created is a synthesis of place, self, collaboration and emotion. After garning success in high school under the alias Miniweapon(2009), Jake Hall decided to pursue oomah a project Extricated from the motives of main stream EDM, something he felt was more connected. In his words I wanted to make something personal, something that was an extension of myself. I didnt want to keep trying to create a product, because it didnt feel right to try and force art. I felt If i continue doing something solely because I love it, it will support me, not immediately and maybe not monetarily, But with joy and the gratification of doing what I love, and making others happy in the process. To quantify the sound of Oomah imagine the sounds of Lapalux, thrifworks, and russ liquid. Then imagine them all doing a tune together, somewhere in the middle you would find Oomah. His use of jazz chords, big etherial pads, and crunchy gear churning percussion create a musical journey of intrigue, groove, and relaxation.
