Devi ("Davey") is an exciting new rock band from Jersey City, led by Debra Devi, "a supersonic fret-burner who writes hauntingly memorable songs" (JamBase). She's a Fender and Engl artist, and the first female guitarist to record forGuitar World's Lick of the Day iPhone app.
Debra's been compared to singers Sheryl Crow, Liz Phair and PJ Harvey and guitarists David Gilmour, Jimi Hendrix and George Harrison. Bonham-style drummer John Hummel and powerhouse bassist Dan Grennes respond fluidly to her every move, forming "a bad-ass power trio with looks, swagger and blistering chops." (Midwest Record)
DEVI's self-produced debut, Get Free, bursts out of the gate with the exhilarating powerpop gem "Another Day" and closes with a six-minute cover of "The Needle and the Damage Done" that ranges from dreamy to ferociously jamming. Crusher UK calls it "exhilarating and contemplative, a first step toward universal recognition for this fabulous band."
Live, Devi flexes its collective chops, "jamming with joy and abandon. If adrenaline, crescendos, and heart-wrenchingly beautiful playing are something you would enjoy, see this band." (Lucid Culture) This is pure rock fudge played by a contemporary Cream--led by a woman.
