" Opus Vitae bursts out of the gate fully formed, sounding like the lofty ideal... "life's work" - (as) the band name suggests."
"...the sunny melodies and love-affirming lyrics of their first single “I’ve Been Wrong” certainly make a case that the band is an outstanding example of Winn’s life’s work."
-The Wild Honey Pie
"Opus Vitae, is an indie rock outfit straight out of Silver Lake. Possessing a delightfully multi-layered and orchestral sound, Opus Vitae is poised to become LA’s latest buzzband."
-LA Music Blog
Opus Vitae arrive with a dynamic, melodic and carefully crafted self-titled EP. Produced by Darrell Thorp (Beck, Radiohead, Foster the People) the Los Angeles based group is led by songwriter Banah Winn. Originally hailing from Portland, Oregon Winn settled in Los Angeles to build a new band and a new sound after playing with a handful of other projects, most notably California’s surf pop group Cayucas. Here Winn finds his own voice. Opus Vitae, translated from Latin as "Life's Work", is a direct outpouring of Winn's ambition, dedication, and persistent internal struggle.
Rounding out the sound of Opus Vitae's raw, driven energy are Montreal native Yan Clermont on lead guitar, and Seattle's Miles Frank and Pat Birney on drums and bass, respectively. These four unique musicians individually bring their own story and spirit to the band. Above all else, the music itself always takes top priority, as experienced in their exceptionally dynamic and honest performances.
