"Debra Devi is a supersonic fret-burner who writes hauntingly memorable songs, blending the intricacy of a good jam band with the catchiness of vintage power pop.”  - JamBase

NEW EP: A Zillion Stars Overhead - 5 new tracks from Debra Devi with Jorgen Carlsson (Gov't Mule) on bass, Rob Clores (Jesse Malin, Black Crowes) and Peter Vitalone on keys, and John Hummel on drums. Recorded by John Agnello, mixed by Sylvia Massy, mastered by Fred Kevorkian.  Release date: March 15, 2020 on True Nature Records/DMM. 

SHORT BIO:  Debra Devi’s growing acclaim as "one of the most remarkable guitarists on the East Coast." (Good Times) has led to recording with Gov’t Mule bassist Jorgen Carlsson, opening for Ana Popovic, Bruce Katz and Marshall Crenshaw, and festival dates from Memphis to Montana. Videos from her 2018 Wild Little Girl EP premiered on The Alternate Root, American Blues Scene, Guitar Girl and The Pop Break

“Devi references the ‘60s and early ‘70s with an understated retro vibe,” notes Hardrock Haven, “but instead of sounding dated, her sound comes across as timeless.”  Urban Politico adds: "Vocally Devi is a dead ringer for Sheryl Crow and her music radiates infectious joy, reminding us of The Black Crowes, Prince, and Little Feat."

MORE INFO: Devi is the first female guitarist to endorse Homestead Amplifiers, which builds custom amps for Gov't Mule, Gary Clark Jr. and Jimmy Herring. She is also a Fender artist. Devi is the author of The Language of the Blues: From Alcorub to Zuzu (Foreword by Dr. John), which is blurbed by Bonnie Raitt and Joe Bonamassa and won the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award. Devi has given her entertaining "Language of the Blues" talk at TedX Jersey City, A. Schwab in Memphis, NYU, Luna Stage and other colleges and theaters. 

Devi has produced two “Jersey City Rocks” concerts at 800-person venue White Eagle Hall showcasing the diversity of the JC music and art scene.  "Devi's set," NJ Arts reported in "Hometown Heroes Fill White Eagle Hall," "felt like a victory lap for the Jersey City rock community. With her powerful vocals, Devi held the near-capacity room in her hand."
