This week’s British Country Airplay’s Artiste of the Week commencing Sunday 9th December 2018 is...
Devon is an independent country singer, songwriter and multi - instrumentalist based in the beautiful Cotswolds, which is an area in south central England.
Devon’s unique style has been shaped by her influences from the musical worlds of Country, Folk and Pop. Inspired by her own emotional journey, her lyrics will resonate with anyone who has experienced the joys and pains of love.
Her debut single ‘You Only Love Me When You’re Drunk’ and her album ‘Lie To Me’ were released in the Summer of 2016 to critical acclaim, reaching #3 in the UK Country iTunes Chart and resulted in Devon being named ‘Best UK Newcomer’ at the B&G Country Music Awards.
Following the album, she embarked on a six week tour of the UK and Europe supporting Caitlin Koch, generating new support wherever she went.
Described by Andrew Marston, BBC Introducing, as “Beautiful songs from an artist who’s been our BBC Introducing Track of the Week on so many occasions”; Devon’s contemporary style of country has gone on to become a favourite with BBC Radio 2’s Whispering Bob Harris, resulting in her being invited to record a second ‘Under the Appletree’ session at C2C Festival last year.
Devon also supports two charities, Fly High Billie and The Royal British Legion. Both had singles released in aid of them, including her 2018 Christmas single ‘Silent Night’.
The video for this was shot last December in the middle of a muddy field in her home town of Woodham Ferrers, with the local community. And Devon is asking if you could share it, to help spread their message far and wide.
Currently in the process of writing her second studio album, the former Miss England finalist, continues to build her following through regular live performances; her beautiful and soulful voice, combined with her emotional and raw writing, makes her an artist you do not want to miss!
“Having recorded more than 400 sessions over 4 years, to stand out from the crowd is no mean feat - but Devon certainly did that. With her sensitive songwriting and soaring vocals, she possesses a rare ability to portray difficult and controversial topics in a way that makes them accessible and personal to the listener, with a level of musicianship and control that makes her a force to reckon with.” ~ Miles Myerscough Harris
“British Country is on the rise, but this piece of British country music comes heavily laced with raw emotion and integrity rather than sprinkled with the pop fairy dust of more famous offerings. These eight songs, all written or co-written by the lady herself, all come from the heart and detail life and love, losses and indiscretions, and find me a person who can’t relate to those.” ~ Ian Ambrose, Maverick Magazine.
