TICKETS ON SALE NOW!!
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Opal Blue… a true 90s child, was born on the West Coast, in Vancouver, Washington. She then spent most of her childhood in Charlotte, NC. It was there Opal began writing music in her bedroom at the age of nine. Growing up she mostly kept her singing/songwriting activities under wraps.
Despite her introversion, Opal’s artistic leanings would earn her a scholarship to study fashion at Savannah College of Art and Design’s Atlanta campus. While there, Opal took an interest in visual arts, changing her major to Painting with a minor in Photography. Atlanta’s vast music scene also opened doors for Opal to re-visit music and experiment sonically. She honed her songwriting skills, collaborating with friend and classmate, Internet-rapper Slug Christ of Awful Records. She is featured on a noise-pop/doo-wop single entitled, “Cry.”
After leaving Atlanta in 2012, Opal spent time in New Hampshire taking time to be a mom to her two boys. She would ultimately return to North Carolina, this time settling in Raleigh. This has proved to be a good move, as she is perfectly suited to the diverse, vibrant music and arts scene in the Triangle Region. Exemplifying this, Opal has become a mainstay as the announcer and host at Beyu Caffe every weekend. Her image, style, and delivery make her the face of Beyu Music.
Opal prides herself on being a conceptual artist – focusing on her unique delivery of singing/songwriting and providing her audience with corresponding, stimulating visuals through photography, fashion and other media on stage. She hopes to convey to you “A Vibe” – reminiscent of her West Coast roots, with a whimsical undertone, highlighting her sultry vocal timbre and pillowy soundscapes. Opal’s range of influences is fuel for a one-of-a-kind artist: the stark honesty of Billie Holiday, the female croon of Sade, the jarring thrill of experimental pop, and many other sources of inspiration – all wrapped into a soulful, original whole.
Opal is an emerging artist whose journey you will want to see and hear unfold – as it will be a richly entertaining, evolving journey. No time like the present to join in…She presents to you… “The Opal Blue Collective”.
