Opal Candy are apparently "right for the job" of creating exciting and melodic music; a sentiment that their
fans will echo with unbridled enthusiasm. Breaking into
the Chicago rock scene in 2001, Opal Candy has since played all over the Chicagoland area and elsewhere throughout the Midwest. With emphasis on catchy & melodic songwriting along with accomplished musicianship, OC has gained much notoriety in Chicago for their high energy live show, musical prowess, and multi-faceted vocal attack.
Some listeners have dubbed them "Incubus meets King's X"...others have said "Alice n' Chains meets The Cure, plays a couple more guitar solos...and tries to be slightly more upbeat from time to time..." Whatever it is that Opal Candy is doing, all of their fans and listeners agree that it is honest, exciting and "rockin'"
Their self-titled debut is Opal Candy's first full length offering. This 11 song effort is the manifestation of a wide range of life experiences, musical influences, and above all, a pure "love of the game" of making music. From the opening energy of "Fluid", to the dark and ethereal "Stone", this CD is pure heart and emotion. Take a taste of the Candy and listen for yourself!
