Debra Devi

JamBase calls rock musician and The Language of the Blues author Debra Devi “a supersonic fret-burner who writes hauntingly memorable songs.” Metal Hammer adds, “Her compelling voice reminds us of PJ Harvey and Sheryl Crow, while her guitar playing brings to mind the incomparable Jimi Hendrix.” Live, Devi leads a “ferocious guitar-driven band equally adept at sprawling psychedelic jams and terse, soulful rockers" (New York Music Daily.)
Of her self-produced debut album, Guitar International raved, “After the fifth time through Get Free I was left with only one question: How in the world have I never heard of this artist before?” Get Free got great reviews overseas also, and was featured on Italy’s iTunes home page for two weeks. Devi became a Fender Girl Rock Nation Artist and the first female guitarist on Guitar World’s Lick of the Day app.
Devi’s love for the blues led her to write The Language of the Blues: from Alcorub to Zuzu (foreword by Dr. John), which earned back-cover praise from Bonnie Raitt and Joe Bonamassa and won the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award for outstanding book on music. Devi explores the blues further on her Huffington Post blog and weekly “Language of the Blues” column on American Blues Scene, syndicated on Buddy Guy’s Blues and Music News. She's been interviewed as a blues expert by NPR's All Things Considered and The BluesMobile, and lectured at A. Schwab in Memphis, Delta Blues Museum, NYU, Jersey City Theater Center, Luna Stage in South Orange NJ and other locations.
This fall, Devi is releasing new singles & videos from her upcoming EP Run Over by the Love Bus. A long-time yoga practitioner, her favorite mantra is lokah samasta sukhino bhavantu: “May all beings everywhere be happy and free.” Visit her website HERE
