The New Jazz & Blues Rooted NYC based power group OPIUS BLISS Tour in Summer 2016.
(Published: July 01, 2016)

Press Release

New York, NY, July 1, 2016: OPIUS BLISS, the New York City based blues and jazz rooted power group, release their summer 2016 tour schedule. In the short time since forming, the members of the Opius Bliss have been growing an impressive fan base in their hometown and spreading their love for American Rooted music with shows planned along the East Coast all throughout the summer of 2016. With their eclectic blend of jazz and blues to soul, rock and funk, this is an electrifying band on the rise.

In just the short time since their inception, the band stretches with wide appeal getting comparison's to Tedeschi Trucks's band, Gov't Mule, Bonnie Raitt, Cassandra Wilson and Alabama Shakes. The band has a similar wide-ranging, diverse roots-oriented approach with the members of Opius Bliss diving into a musical space that is uniquely their own. 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 is spellbounding.

All members of the band are New York Jazz scene veterans for the past 10 years. Michelle Walker has been touring under her own name internationally with a recent performance at The Java Jazz Festival in Jakarta, Indonesia on the same bill as Patti Austin, Kurt Elling, Monty Alexander, The Yellowjackets, Chris Botti, Sting and more. There is a uniqueness to Walker's soothing tone that is equally matched by the hypnotic talent of acclaimed guitarist Jason Ennis. Pianist Sean Fitzpatrick has worked with the New York Voices, bassist Michael O'Brien and drummer Sean Dixon who has teamed up on projects with Me'shell Ndegeocello, Aloe Blacc and Kellylee Evans round out this highly charged band. The music moves at times to an acoustically sparse vocal heavy murmur to powerful punch improvisational zeal with an overlay of gospel and blues tinged-soul.

You can catch Opius Bliss live in concert tonight July 1st at the famed Greenwich Village watering-hole, The 55 Bar from 10:00pm to 2:00am.
