Opius Bliss feat. Michelle Walker

Opius Bliss.

With their wide-ranging, eclectic and roots-oriented approach to making music, the new indie power group Opius Bliss defies categorization leaving audiences fully enthralled. Rearranging harmonies of familiar tunes, the members of Opius Bliss dive into an exploratory musical narrative. The Washington Post says of lead vocalist Michelle Walker, "....she has a soul-comforting allure...." With Walker's deep, dark and rich tone, the band draws listeners into a spellbound musical space.

Walker's soothing tone is matched by the hypnotic guitar talent of acclaimed guitarist Jason Ennis, pianist Sean Fitzpatrick, bassist Michael O'Brien and drummer Sean Dixon. With their inviting style, the music moves at times to an acoustically sparse vocal heavy murmur to powerful punch improvisational zeal. The band delivers seductive interludes with gorgeous, harmonies, energetic compositions with an overlay of gospel and blues tinged-soul.

In the short time since their inception, Opius Bliss has begun to grab the attention and praise of concert-goers, critics and talent buyers. The band stretches with wide appeal with comparison's to Tedeschi Trucks band, Gov't Mule, Bonnie Raitt, Cassandra Wilson, Alabama Shakes and Gregory Porter.
