OMNIA is much more than "just a band" - it has become a complete life style, philosophy and natural-"religion" without leaders or rules. OMNIA sings of personal freedom and personal responsibility, of ancient Celtic values of right and wrong. A song of global ecological awareness and the spiritual connection between humans and Nature. OMNIA is a song of "thinking outside the box"...
This world is dying... The mutant monkeys have gone completely insane... as a species we need to shut the fuck up and listen to what Nature is telling us...
Shaman Steve Sic and Harp Fairy Jenny (aka Stenny) with their graceful outlandish clothes, strange hairstyles, dreadlocks and head/body covering ritual tattoos are both deeply religious people with an encyclopedic knowledge of musical instruments, the Natural world, Northern European indigenous culture and the animistic / shamanic rites, music rituals and nature religions of the world. Their Pagan/Bohemian philosophy is very free and non-dogmatic though heavily based on the cool bits of most ancient Indigenous Religions, the scientific knowledge about our biosphere and how it functions and (of course) the everpresent search for original ART and BEAUTY.
Stenny abhors the commercial, mad lifestyle of modern society, and live a very simple life in the forest, free from television and the media. They have more connection to the natural and spirit world than to "normal" human society (which they themselves view as insane and philosophically diseased).
Through years of study and practice SteveSic has become a natural-"Shaman" as well as a musician (this is like a crazy spiritual teacher / medicine-man/ philosopher / jester all rolled into one). Because of this SteveSic and his wife Jenny are able to put their own psychic and emotional energy into their musical performances. This may sound a little "mumbo-jumbo" to you, but this basically means that an OMNIA concert or CD has the added effect of having this whole band of talented pagans sharing that energy and spreading it out to the audience in a modern, yet timeless ritual which is understood by all who enter their universe, "the World of OMNIA".
OMNIA turns any concert into a form of shamanic ritual, making all willing members of the audience part of it. From gigantic burning Wickermen at rock festivals to tiny delicate rituals for nature ... all is ritual, all is for nature....Because OMNIA's form of nature religion is purely intuitive and non-dogmatic (there are no rules...do as you please), it is for all those who respect life and recognise the duality and balance in all things natural, those who can still see the fairies in the woods and smile.
Through this kind of attitude and depth of conviction on stage, the musical voice of the band "comes alive" for those special members of the audience who can think "outside the box" ... it speaks to those sensitive souls who feel "out of place" in this world of crazy monkeys, mass media lies and corporate law. Those who realise all is not what it seems... inspiring them to be whatever they want to be, to break through the restrictions of this mad modern culture and be free.
