There is something arresting about Devans music. His songs have been described as melancholic with a triumphant and rebellious edge. Bluesy chords and subdued lyrics are interrupted by powerful and soaring, yet honest, melodies. Like very few others, Devan can capture the simplicity of a beautiful existence, torn asunder by the confusing complexities of life such as politics, social pressure and pop culture.
Vancouver born and raised singer/songwriter, Devan loves life in all its difficulty, often singing about life’s madness with passionate commitment. A love ballad here, a protest manifesto there, he expresses the range of human emotions in a society ripped apart by greed, and heartache, yet he has forged a style of music that is both unique and refreshing. He has an art for performance and is often revered for drawing in his audience with his emotional and gentle commanding presence.
