Opportunity Arts is thrilled to welcome Final Confession as our newest Affiliate Member! The band is composed of 4 Michigan musicians: Kaity Walstad from Flint, Adam Crawford from Lansing, Royce Lloyd from Grand Rapids, & Collin Huston from Muskegon. More than a show; an experience. More than a song; a message. Final Confession strives to reach their audience in a profound and relatable way. Honest and raw lyrical themes pair with high-energy, charismatic live performances to create a uniquely symbiotic relationship between artists and fans. Final Confession hopes to help others feel loved and cared for, even when they feel nobody is listening. What motivates the band the most is their unparalleled passion for the art of music.
Final Confession released their first full-length album in 2020.

In November 2022, Final Confession released a new single and cinematic video entitled "The Cycle", which demonstrated heightened levels of creative maturity for the band. Paired with a new and ambitious marketing strategy, this release triggered exponential growth and acclaim for the band. Final Confession kicked off 2023 by releasing a sophomore single and music video, entitled “Beyond The Veil”. This track took a heavy dive into uncharted territory for the band and pushed the limits of their precedent style.
