Opal Canyon is a place where modern country finds psychedelic escape, featuring Debra DeMuth, Dave Houghton, Bob Hennessy, Ray Mason and Jason Smith. Debra DeMuth’s voice with an emotive, old-time resonance is featured vocally and Dave Houghton (of indie-rock groups, Fancy Trash and The Reejers), adds a dissonant vocal harmony along with his well-mastered guitar playing which can sway between delicate to furious in an instant.
DeMuth and Houghton previously teamed up as duo, And the Neighbors, with Opal Canyon they have added a full-band of talented, experienced musicians. Celebrated artist, Ray Mason, of the Lonesome Brothers and The Ray Mason Band offers his bass playing prowess, Jason Smith who has played drums for Chris Smither and Erin McKeown adds drums and percussion and Bob Hennessy who has played with Treefort and Ware River Club adds in electric guitar, mandolin, piano and organ.
Opal Canyon will be releasing their new album, Beauty and loss, in Spring of 2019. It is the first for Opal Canyon and was engineered by Justin Pizzoferrato at Sonelab Studios and mastered by John Golden of Golden Mastering. It will be released digitally as well as on vinyl.
