The Ophelias

Agent: Tom Konitzer
Territory: North America / Asia
Label: Joyful Noise



The Ophelias are always in transition. Spencer Peppet (guitar and vocals, she/her), Mic Adams (drums, he/him), and Andrea Gutmann Fuentes (violin, she/her) started the band as high schoolers living in Cincinnati, Ohio, before Jo Shaffer (bass, they/she) joined in 2019. Now the members are spread across the East Coast and Midwest, reconvening in New York or Cincinnati to tour and record. They began as an “all girl band” and are now a joyfully queer and trans band. Ribbon, The Ophelias’ upcoming EP, finds the band fully in the adult world for the first time, with a cerebral awareness of one another that only comes with years of collaboration. The songs explore spaces between right and wrong, good and bad, friend and enemy. Experiences that can’t be compartmentalized: the glowing in-betweens. The band has worked with Julien Baker, played with bands like Indigo de Souza, Hand Habits, Mannequin Pussy, and comedian Cat Cohen, and played festivals like SXSW, Treefort, and Nelsonville.
