About Us

Opus One Studios is a socially conscious enterprise that offers creative products supporting worthy causes. Our products are both digital and physical, generally falling into categories like Music, Books, Games and the like. We are unique in that 100% of our profits are donated to a specified beneficiary charity for each product. Our business model for this is Newman's Own products. "Profits" do not mean that all of our development and marketing costs must be recovered before we generate profit per se. From the very first unit sold, we will donate 65% of the gross margin on that product to the designated beneficiary. In some cases, it may turn out that we never recover the development and marketing costs. In that sense, Opus One Studios is a philanthropic venture. We hope you enjoy our products and will help us support these worthy causes.

JUST RE-RELEASED

Whitney originally wrote this song in response to the back-to-back killings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, and Philando Castille in Minneapolis in 2016. Josh produced it shortly afterwards. It does not escape us that as we re-release this song in solidarity and mourning in 2020, we have come full-circle, back to events in Minneapolis, amidst numerous deaths in the four-year interim. This song is not meant to be instructional to Black people, but rather an attempt to provide perspective to non-Black audiences about the plight that we continue to face amidst systemic racism.

World War II Songs You Never Heard is an EP mini-album of three songs originally written in 1945-1946, and only now, some 60+ years later recorded for the first time. With lyrics by Betty Blanchard and music by Jimmy Rogers, these songs capture the events surrounding the end of that all-engulfing war. The recordings feature vocals in 40's style jazz vocal renditions, with echoes of the Andrews Sisters. The new recordings feature Diane Michelle as vocalist with instrumental tracks by Richard Leiter.
