On the scene since 2018, he is known for lively house sets that aim at bringing love and compassion to the dance floor.

Umami has a strong love for his hometown of St. Louis, where he holds multiple residencies across the city. With a lot of hard work, he has recently begun traveling more for gigs across the country. His production isn’t bound by one genre. From producing electronic/dance tracks for artists like Morganne, to producing hip-hop/indie/house tracks for Noah Fence, Umami is invested in appreciating all types of music. Working in a record shop has promoted his love of multitudes of genres and an addiction for collecting records.

Currently he is working on new music, playing saxophone, and putting out several releases before the end of the year.
