Omar Pedrini, after his very successful experience with the Timoria, began his new artistic career in 2002. Already in '96, he had experienced solo sailing with the musical-literary album "Beatnik – Il ragazzo tatuato di Birkenhead", still having numerous activities outside the band, including the artistic direction of Brescia Music Art from '97, a contamination festival between Arts.
In 2004, he made his debut as a soloist at the Sanremo Festival with Lavoro Inutileand receiving the special prize for best lyrics. On the eve of the tour, his path is interrupted due to a delicate operation after having suffered an aortic aneurysm. Omar does not give up and soon resumes his activity, first as a Rai author and later also as a host of Nu-Roads on Rai 2. Always for RAI, he also writes Milan in Music and begins his activity as a composition and realization teacher in 2005 of a pop song for a Master in Musical Communication at the Catholic University of Milan. Several months from the operations, Omar resumed his live activity in the summer of 2005, also collaborating with other members of Timoria, including Enrico Ghedi (keyboards) and Filippo Ummarino (percussions) and other artists from the world of music, cinema and sculpture. In May 2006, he released his third solo album, Pane burro e Medicine, and participated as a protagonist in the short film Un casale, due gessetti e tanti ricci by Claudio Uberti. The same year, he started his charity activity alongside AMREF Italia. He continued his artistic activity in the years to follow and in 2010 released a new album La capanna dello Zio Rock, described by Pedrini himself as a nice disposition, with all the best of Timoria and some unpublished pieces. In 2013, he worked on a new album, with strong brit pop sounds, recorded in Manchester after a meeting with Noel Gallagher and the producer of Oasis. The album features the influence of Paul Weller, the proximity to the working class and the common roots of British rock, from The Who to the Beatles, to Pink Floyd. In May 2014, Omar received the FIM AWARD as the best Italian rock artist in the context of the FIM, Genoa International Music Fair. In 2017, he published for Warner Music Come se non ci fosse un Domani; the album comes out three years after the previous work and marks a new beginning for Omar, his third time as he himself has defined it. After the release of the reissue of Viaggio Senza Vento by Timoria, Omar Pedrini held an incredible concert at the Fabrique in Milan. The surprises for 2020 have just begun.
