Pomo is a Vancouver-based multi-instrumentalist and producer who makes electronic music influenced by hip-hop, house, and funk music from the ‘70s and ‘80s. He grew up in Port Moody, BC, and cultivated his tastes and sound through the Vancouver electronic music scene before moving to Montreal for some time, joining the likes of Kaytranada, Ta-Ku, and STWO on the HW&W roster.

Since then, Pomo hit his stride in the electronic dance music market, garnering millions of listens online with his multifaceted productions on handful of original songs and a battery of remixes for some of dance music's biggest players. With that hype has come recognition from renowned music outlets like BBC Radio 1, the Fader, Complex, Vice's THUMP and Noisey publications, Triple J, Earmilk, Majestic Casual, and more.

Apart from his own releases, Pomo has produced tracks for many artists including Mac Miller and Anderson .Paak. Of late, Pomo has brought his live show on the road, traveling around Europe and USA alongside Disclosure, bringing his unique grooves to places like London, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, Sydney, and even Bangkok.

His debut EP, The Other Day, won a Juno Award for 2016 Electronic Album of the Year. When asked about his next project, Pomo says he’s “very excited about how the new album is turning out. Huge thanks to Creative BC for helping make it happen.”

Creative BC is proud to support Pomo as part of the BC Music Fund’s Sound Recording Program.
