M-OPUS are Jonathan CASEY (keys, vocals) and Colin SULLIVAN (guitar, vocals), a progressive rock duo from Dublin, Ireland. The duo have played together in original and cover bands for 15 years, but established M-OPUS in 2014.
Under the stage name Arch STANTON, CASEY had previously been a member of the David CROSS Band (ex-King Crimson). Together with CROSS, they released two albums, “Closer Than Skin” in 2005 and “Alive In The Underworld” in 2008.
Since then, CASEY became a successful composer for orchestras, with performances all over the U.S., China, Australia, Bulgaria, France, the U.K. and on TV and film.
CASEY and SULLIVAN started M-OPUS as a platform to perform and write original music in their favourite style, symphonic rock of the 1970s. They have a live line-up, which includes Darragh DENNIS (bass) and Mark GRIST (drums).
Their first album is “1975 Triptych” on Rude Chord Records, out on February 2nd 2015. They plan to release albums that each represent the sound of a certain year. Their next release will be ‘1978’.
