Opelousas (Opper-loo-sas), is a feast of grit and glory featuring a roux of KERRI SIMPSON’s powerful raw vocals, ALISON FERRIER’s dirty stripped-back electric guitar, amplifed fiddle and smooth vocal tones, peppered with ANTHONY “Shorty” SHORTTE’s swamp-soaked percussion. This powerhouse plays pulsating rhythms from the belly of the blues.
Their debut album “Opelousified” won them the 2019 Music Victoria Blues album of the year award. The album co-produced by Jeff Lang who also created film clips for their singles ‘Dear John’’, “James Dean’ and “ Third Jinx Blues”. The resulting gumbo is a tasty treat for audiences far and wide.
“A joyous debut collaboration from three of Australia’s highly respected musicians, Opelousas have whipped up a gumbo of stripped back raw blues, highly rhythmic & riff orientated, rollin’ & tumblin’ straight out of the swampy Mississippi Hill country, above the Delta. I just love the sound and material. Can’t compare it with any other Aussie band, I believe.” Helen Jennings OAM PBS 106.7FM
