Bio

Opiuo is Oscar Davey-Wraight. Born in the festival paddocks of rural New Zealand, he packed

his bags and headed to Australia at the youthful age of 20 to find meaner, greener party

pastures. Landing in the grimey, colourful streets of Melbourne, he built a emphatic fan base

amongst club and festival goers across the great red land of Australia. Using his positivity as a

catalyst for mighty musical enjoyment, he captivated audiences with his extremely unique

funkadelic bass heavy creations.

His 2010 debut album Slurp & Giggle spread like wildfire across the global underground music

scene, earning him nominations for best album at the Australian Independent Music Awards.

His follow up albums, Meraki in 2014 and Omniversal in 2016, were winners and finalists for the

New Zealand Music Awards in the "Electronic Album Of The Year" category respectively, and

continued by gaining millions of plays and downloads across all the major musical platforms.

Since then Oscar has gone on to be specifically selected to support the most respected names

in electronic music, including Bassnectar, Griz, Pretty Lights and more. He's headlined the

greatest venues in the world, including Colorado's famous Red Rocks Amphitheater with his 5

piece live band juggernaut The Opiuo Band. He has also played every major North American,

Australasian and European festival to rave reviews.

His highly sought after remix works span artists far and wide, from Gwen Stefani to Kimbra, Griz

to Pretty Lights, Koan Sound to Infected Mushroom, earning him respect as a truly versatile

artist, with no specific genre box to restrict his musical endeavours.
