Imagine you're preparing a list of today’s top female blues/rock guitarists. No doubt you'll include Bonnie Raitt, Samantha Fish, Susan Tedeschi and Ana Popovic. If you don’t include Debra Devi, your list is not complete. ” - Bill Graham

New Live EP Jamification Station Vol. 1 Reaches #5 on Relix/ Radio Chart Top 30

Debra Devi plays "dreamy blues-rockers and blistering psychedelic jams" (Relix) flavored with her soulful voice and expressive guitar playing. 

Devi's live EP, Jamification Station Vol. 1, captures her Jersey City NJ band at full throttle. The EP reached #5 on the Relix/ Top 30 Radio Chart, staying on the chart for three months.  

Former Gov't Mule bassist Jorgen Carlsson joined Devi on her previous EP A Zillion Stars Overhead. Americana Highways calls their collaboration "exciting and mesmerizing."

Devi has opened for Joan Osborne, Jesse Malin, Ana Popovic, and more. She recently co-headlined the Haverford Music Festival with Joe Louis Walker and East Pete Blues Fest with Greg Sover. 

Live, Devi leads "a fierce guitar-driven band equally adept at soulful rockers and sprawling jams" (NY Music Daily).  She endorses Homestead Amplifiers, which supplies amps to Gov’t Mule, Jimmy Herring and Susan Tedeschi.

Devi's book The Language of the Blues: From Alcorub to Zuzu (foreword by Dr. John) won the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award, and high praise from Bonnie Raitt and Joe Bonamassa. Devi has given her popular "Language of the Blues" talk at festivals, universities, theaters and venues, including Crown Guitar Festival in Montana, A. Schwab's in Memphis, TedX Jersey City, NYU and Danny Clinch Gallery.
