Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist OPLIAM creates music that crosses numerous genres. The phrase “alter-native rock” is sometimes used. OPLIAM has performed in Australia and New Zealand as part of worldwide tours.

All Roads Are Good, OPLIAM’s third studio album, was released in May 2022. Throughout the rest of this year, he will be on a national promotional tour for the new project. 

Additionally, “Indigenous America,” his debut book, was released by Penguin-Random House in 2022.It is part of a brand-new, challenging nonfiction series for young readers that explores the real history of the United States. On his father’s side, OPLIAM is Native American, and as a musician and writer, he has never lost sight of his roots.

NPR, Chicago Reader (Best of 2021), The School Library Journal (Starred Review), Digital Music News, WFMT, Music Observer News, among many other publications, have all highlighted OPLIAM’s work.
