Debra Devi is a blues-rock guitarist and singer/songwriter who blends pop, rock, jam and Americana into memorable songs flavored with her masterful guitar playing.
Devi's upcoming EP, A Zillion Stars Overhead, includes Jorgen Carlsson (Gov't Mule) on bass and Rob Clores (Jesse Malin, Black Crowes) on keys. Recorded by John Agnello, mixed by Sylvia Massy, the EP will be released in spring 2020 on True Nature Records/DMM.
Devi is the first female guitarist invited 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 references the ‘70s with an understated retro vibe,” notes Hardrock Haven, “but instead of sounding dated, her sound comes across as timeless.”
Devi is also the author of the popular blues glossary, The Language of the Blues (foreword by Dr. John) which won the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award.
“Debra Devi is a supersonic fret-burner who writes hauntingly memorable songs, blending the cleverness and intricacy of a good jam band with the catchiness of vintage power pop.”
