Popscure Presents: Opal

POPSCURE PRESENTS TAKES LOCAL & TOURING ARTISTS, RECORDS INTIMATE SESSIONS WITH A FEW SONGS AND CHATS ABOUT THEIR PROCESS, INSPIRATIONS, AND NON SEQUITURS IN BETWEEN

When I first came up with the idea of POPSCURE PRESENTS, Opal Dillard immediately popped up as a possibility. She's a multifaceted artist from my hometown, who makes unique R&B music and pretty much any clothes she wears. Somewhat of an enigma, everyone and myself have been curious to know what she's been working on.

For a special edition of our live sessions, we took away the song aspect and let the auteur speak for herself. Sprinkled between her words of wisdom are clips of her upcoming fashion line, and unreleased music that shows a tougher side -- "the real Opal," according to her.

Special thanks to Mike Washington of Rosewood Chapter for capturing the video, Andrew Briggs for making it all sound crispy, and Opal for graciously welcoming us into her home. I'm excited for this one.
