TUNE Apollo Hill - Poison
Apollo Hill is the moniker of Orange County (California) based 25 yr-old R&B/Alternative artist and producer Paolo Ombao. Having lived in 5 cities in the span of a decade, Apollo Hill's sound is an amalgam of influences cultivated from America's East Coast to Midwest to West Coast, ultimately blurring the boundaries between R&B and alt/rock. An outlet to tackle his experiences with isolation, racial prejudice stemming from his Filipino heritage, anxiety, relationships, paranoia and more, music has become something much more significant for Apollo Hill. With a stutter that has often made communication difficult, music is Apollo Hill's sanctuary, a place where he has always found a way to connect with others.
"Poison" is from Apollo Hill's forthcoming debut EP, VIVID WORLD XPRS PT. 1, releasing June 19th, 2020 via Roshambo Recordings.
"Orange County's Apollo Hill uses spacey guitars and a fluid approach to melody as the backdrop for a moment's escape on 'Poison.'" - The FADER
