WHO IS MISS O
Miss O is the Italian-Belgian duo formed by singer/songwriter Odette Di Maio and composer/producer Jan de Block.
Odette and Jan met in 2004, by chance, in the home-studio of a mutual friend in Belgium. Jan was impressed by Odette’s crystalline voice and after some time he proposed her to write and perform some tracks together.
After a long and intense journey of trying and searching, the universe of Miss O was getting shape, and they released their first album in 2012, “Infection”... And the story began.
