With the release of the Ms Fortune EP, Johnny Opus takes a new approach to some classic genres to give the record a life all it's own. Lush with addicting progressions, a raw but soulful vocal style, and persistent folk pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of singer songwriter anthems. 

The first single, “Hero's Journey", immediately grabs you with it's infectiously honest lyrics, followed by a classic folk style and it's ability to build and breathe as it plays on.


"The hero's journey is the path we all take through out our life both individually and as whole. It outlines, in detail, a story structure in which the hero starts in a neutral place, leaves to accomplish a mission, meets the struggle climactically and is forever transformed before returning home, " explains the songwriter of his single.

Although the single speaks volumes for the EP, to get a real understanding of where Johnny Opus is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.

 

"The theme behind the Ms Fortune EP can be described as being given a gift or vision without the understanding as how to manifest it while reality seems to put up walls every step of the way. Almost as tho the universe is teasing you and life is a cruel joke. 'Hero's Journey' represents the album in just that way, my Journey and this EP is my ship." says Opus of creating the record.  
 

The music journey for singer songwriter Johnny Opus began at the age of 15 when his father started teaching him finger picking on an acoustic guitar. From there, Opus went on too learn and play on his own. While attending Cabrillo College to study music, he ended up falling in love with a new instrument. The piano. In the years following Opus would win a number of piano scholarships and ended up graduating from SJSU with a Bachelors of Music Composition. 

 

Upon arriving home after graduation, a shoulder injury disabled Johnny from playing piano again. Realizing he could play guitar while lying down, he spent his time falling in love with his first instrument once again. As he spent time playing, writing, and creating, a feeling began to build inside of him. An almost spiritual push towards the knowledge that he had more to offer this world. He decided then to move to Austin TX with his sisters and did just that. 

 

Although Johnny Opus has been passionate about music his entire life he feels as though his journey has only just begun.


Ms Fortune is available now for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets and the artist is always working on new material and refining his technique for upcoming releases.
