Play the Songs of Omar Delarosa
Matisse and Carrots is the moniker of 23-year old Omar Delarosa. He is a bit like Paul McCartney during the early days of his solo-career when he recorded home-brew pop songs playing all the instruments himself. Delarosa plays all the instruments and puts them together on the computer. But unlike Paul McCartney, Delarosa has no major (or minor) hits on the radio, he just has a myspace page. Nor is Delarosa English, he's actually Latin-American. Nor does Delarosa's career stretch back to the 60s, he wasn't even alive until the 80s. Delarosa wrote these 10 songs between 2006 and 2008 and recorded them in his apartment during the summer of 2008 with a little help on vocals from his girlfriend Caeley Lauren. Even if they may never be radio hits like McCartney's songs, he doesn't mind. He just hopes you enjoy the songs and sing along to them in your car or in your iPod or the gym. They can be enjoyed anywhere, really.
