Who are we?
After tantalizing listeners with a taste of what they were capable of in 2015 with the release of their Terra EP, the Australia- based duo of Alex Champ & Nadav Tabak continued to chart their own unique & extraordinary journey towards success. With the incredible response to their lead single “J.A.M.” going viral and racking up an astounding thirty-million hits across their various social media platforms online, it was instantly clear that Alex & Nadav were on to something special with their music as Opal Ocean, and they immediately set forth to craft a professional career & legacy that they could proudly call their own. Through their intricate technique and intensely mesmerizing, psychedelically-tinged spin on the acoustic sound, Opal Ocean unleashed a monumental set of captivating songs for their full- length debut record Lost Fables in 2016, which would go on to establish their name across the globe as they toured through Canada, New Zealand, and Europe. From significant highlights & achievements along the way like their crowd-funded single “Mexicana,” being featured at festivals, doing interviews, receiving critical acclaim from all corners of the map, and the release of their second album The Hadal Zone in 2020 – Opal Ocean surged throughout the scene with music that spoke volumes on behalf of their chemistry & authenticity. It wasn’t only the fans at home in Australia anymore – it wasn’t even only the fans they’d gained from their tireless tours around the world – the industry itself began to take notice too; the legendary Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater lent his time & talent to support them on “Polycephaly” from The Hadal Zone. Opal Ocean has been thriving as hard as ever, playing the Formula 1 race in Abu Dhabi’s Grand Prix in 2021, securing yet another official endorsement with Godin Guitars of Canada, and released new music. A stunning set of five covers unlike any other, played as emotively as this dynamic duo ever could – the Fish Food EP arrived mid 2022 with a lineup of songs that has Opal Ocean exploring the music of Joe Satriani, the White Stripes, System Of A Down, Infected Mushroom, and Pink Floyd. They toured through Europe the following summer in support of the Fish Food EP with stops in musical hotspots Spain, Germany, France, Switzerland, and Malta to headline the Earth Garden Festival in 2022 – Now they are fully equipped and ready to do it again in 2023 to make this the most memorable chapter of their career to-date. Join them as they take their music right across the map & back again to make 2023 an equally unforgettable year.
