DESCRIPTION: Opal Agafia & The Sweet Nothings is a (Ozark Mountain Soul) Roots n Roll group from Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Lead vocalist and songwriter, Opal Agafia, entered the music scene in January of 2015. Shortly after playing in local joints with various musicians, Opal Agafia & The Sweet Nothings, developed into a full roots band. Together the group puts on a high energy show while focusing on soulful lyrics and instrumental combos. Spring 2016 saw the release their first album, "One Down, Forever To Go." In 2018, Opal Agafia release her sophomore album, "Share What You Own."

“I’m not looking to reinvent the wheel. I just want to remind people why the wheel was such a good invention in the first place,” says Finnigan. He might be invoking a golden era of soul music, but Finnigan captures a timelessness on this album that transcends the “retro” label so often cast on music with a gritty aesthetic. Partnering with Terry Cole and his rising label Colemine Records was a key part of this project for Finnigan who has been involved in over a dozen Colemine releases as an engineer, producer, instrumentalist, and singer. Finnigan plans to tour heavily in 2019 behind the album release.
