Devan – “Without You”

Born in Toronto, this Canadian singer and songwriter spent her early childhood in London, immersed in the rich, British cultural scene. She began to play guitar and dreams of a musical future emerged. Back in Canada she started performing live, both solo and as a member of the band Wild Rivers. Inspired by varied artists like Billie Eilish and Fleetwood Mac, she debuted with “Almost” in 2020.

Wrapping her personal lyrics about an ex that tries to win her back now her dreams are coming true in a warm and elegant pop blanket, her new single is radiating a wealth of charm and style. Initially keeping it simple with a gentle guitar and her sumptuous vocals, the song soon comes to live with a beefy rhythm. Giving modern production a slight retro edge, this luscious jam is utterly spellbinding.

Devan – “We’re All Gonna Die Anyway”

Toronto-born and London-raised, this enchanting singer and songwriter has been pursuing a music career since she was a kid. As a brazen 10 year old she dropped off a demo at the legendary Olympic Studios, home to Ella Fitzgerald and Stevie Wonder. Blending the genius of her heroes, like Amy Winehouse’s vocal production and Stevie Nicks’ poeticism, she debuted with “Real Shot” in 2020.

Turning down her brazen fire onto a slow burner, her third offering conceives a velveteen, jazzy atmosphere. Mellow guitars and a mild rhythm are the vehicle for her spellbinding vocals, recalling the, climate crisis-inspired, fact that life is short and we shouldn’t let social barriers stop us from telling people how we feel. Mesmerizing, charming and seductive, you want this jam to live forever.
