Odessa

Odessa began her singing career in Denver, Colorado, USA at the tender age of thirteen, by the time she turned seventeen she had become a popular local celebrity! She kept company with some of the greatest musicians on the American circuit. At the age of nineteen she formed her own band ‘Reinbeau’ that toured throughout the USA playing every state with the exception of Hawaii. In 1982, while in Oklahoma, she was chosen by the Tulsa radio station KVOO to appear in a national country music contest at The Grand Ol’ Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. During her career as a singer and bass player, she had success with record albums in Texas, Oklahoma and California, writing most of her own material.  After the break-up of Reinbeau, Odessa successfully resumed her solo career, playing and singing in Texas, Louisiana, Georgia and Alabama. In 1994 Odessa crossed the ‘Pond’ to settle in Derby, England, where she became popular in the Midlands. Finally a move to Wales prompted her retirement from the music industry to concentrate on a business career. Having established her commercial enterprise, she has now resurrected her first love…music. She now brings pleasure with her mellow tones and varied sets to audiences in England & Wales. In recent years she has found enjoyment in entertaining audiences as a DJ. Join in on her shows at www.omcrn.com

Lance Hawkins

Singer, songwriter, disc jockey, country music historian, Lance Hawkins does it all. With a deep love of country music, Lance has spent a life time researching and enjoying the genre by interviewing and sharing the stage with some of the true legends of all time. Born on December 16, 1961, Lance’s family were fans of country music and instilled their love of the music in him. Lance’s great uncle owned a night club in Ventura, CA which featured many country acts including Johnny Cash who lived in nearby Casitas Springs. Cash occasionally, would come into the club to try out songs he would potentially take back to Nashville to record on the patrons. Growing up, he embraced the music while developing his hobby of record collecting. Currently Lance has a vast collection of recordings dating from the 1940’s to present day. In 2010, after many years of performing in Southern California, Lance took over as lead vocalist/rhythm vocalist of the San Diego, CA based band The Palominos. With two CD’s under their belts, The Palominos have become known as true crowd-pleasers. OMCRN is happy to have Lance on board with his weekly show Country Party Time.
