Omer Fedi Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education

Omer Fedi was born on 25 March 2000, in Tel Aviv, Israel, the son of famed Israeli drummer Asher Fedi, while there’s no information about his mother. He grew up in Israel, where his father took him under his wing and taught him how to play drums at an early age. As he got older, his musical interest diversified, and he began playing guitar when 10 years old.

After finishing elementary and middle school, Omer and his dad moved to the USA, settling in Los Angeles. There, Omer enrolled at Calabasas High School, and wanting to improve his music skills, he joined the high school jazz ensemble.

He caught the eye of many virtuoso guitar players in and out of the school circle, who encouraged him to pursue a music career.

He won the Outstanding Performer award at the Reno Jazz Festival in 2018 in front of 9,000 other musicians, and before the year ended, he was contacted by songwriter Sam Hook to work with him.

Career Beginnings

Omer accepted Sam’s invitation, and the two started working together. Omer said that before Hook contacted him, he’d never written a song. However, the two teamed up, and he started working on songs every day after school.
