'Violince',the Dunda Chief Records debut CD of OPPERA,is a stunningingly intricate journey through a beautifully crafted musical landscape that includes many elements from classic rock,classical music,and a heavy dose of pure radio friendly pop tied together in a way that is extremely fresh and innovative.
Singing like an angry angel and looking better than ever is none other than former Columbia Recording Artist 'Martika'. Martika had several hits during the late 80's and early 90's, culminating in the Billboard Charts number one smash 'Toy Soldiers'. 'Violince's heart wrenching ballads and epic rock songs definitely showcase the former 'pop diva' in her full glory! Martika has lost none of her hauntingly pure talent that catapulted her into the spotlight and to the top of the charts. With an army of alt-rock bands goose stepping to the same beat, OPPERA has side-stepped the pitfalls of sounding like everyone else, and created a wonderfully detailed world of their own that you really must hear to believe.
About the Artist
OPPERA consists of former Columbia Recording artist 'Martika', who scored numerous hits, culminating with the Billboard topping, number one smash 'Toy Soldiers'. Martika was one of the first female Latin artists to hit it big on the pop scene and for years afterwards, many followed in the footsteps of her meteoric rise to stardom. Martika created a name for herself early on her career by starring as 'Gloria' in the hit Disney television show 'Kids Incoporated'. She then moved on to appear in many television shows and movies. Martika's love for music, and the chance to control her destiny, led her back into the studio to repeat her success story, but this time with a partner in crime. That partner in particular, is virtuoso guitarist and producer Michael Mozart. Michael Mozart has been on the music scene, but has been quietly helping others become successful. Creating a trademark style and sound that are evident on their debut CD 'Violince', Mozart has garnered years of experience from working with some of the most influential, Hall of Fame Musicians in the field of Rock, Pop, and R&B music. Classically trained, and formally trained in the School of Rock, Mozart has excelled at mixing the two seemingly opposing lifestyles together to form a brilliantly faceted production which sounds as hard as diamonds. Mozart's unbelievably prodigious talent on the guitar, almost overshadows the fact that he has played every single instrument on OPPERA's debut CD.
OPPERA is the best of two worlds that have collided together to form the nexus of a potentially landmark new act.
OPPERA's name definitely fits these two talented individuals.
