Omar Matthews was born in Detroit, MI. He was first introduced to the saxophone by Howard House at the age of eight at Birney Elementary. He was then later taught jazz by Nathaniel’s brother, Ryan Felton. He started to play French Horn at Cass Technical High School due to the fact that there were none in his high school band. He is currently a senior at the University of Michigan in French Horn Performance and Jazz Studies.
He has been with the love of his life, K. Lynn Williams, for almost his entire life. She is an elementary education major at the University of Michigan. Also from Detroit, MI, she has a strong love of jazz and classical music. Lynn is very active in her church, in particularly the dance and youth ministry with her best friend, Pearl. Although Omar and Lynn love music, they cannot see life without God and each other.
