About Opal Canyon
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. Sheryl Hunter of the Recorder notes, “DeMuth has a sweet country folk vibe that nicely contrasts with Houghton’s edgier punk background. Together, they combine
their voices and varying musical influences to create a one-of-a-kind Americana sound.” DeMuth and Houghton previously teamed up as a 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 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. Listen to and preorder their
album at their BandCamp. Check out their website at this link and “like” them on Facebook.
