In 2006 Deanna Devore recorded and co-produced her first seven-song EP with Bjorn Thorsrud
(Smashing Pumpkins, Dandy Warhols), on which she played nearly every instrument with some
backup from drumming heavyweight Matt Walker (Morrissey, Garbage).
Her voice, guitar playing
and songwriting carry a lyrical sensitivity, a maturity and sophistication that spans across
electro-dance, alternative, acoustic, Brazilian jazz and orchestral territories.
With an ever-expanding song catalogue, Devore and her band have headlined and shared sold-out
local, regional, and national fest stages such as Summerfest, CMJ, NXNE, and 80/35.
She has opened up for jazz/pop heavyweight Jamie Cullum, electronic mastermind Bonobo,
as well as Lapalux, AM + Shawn Lee, Kat Edmonson, fellow Canadians Basia Bulat and Juno
Award-winning Lights. In 2013 Devore released her second EP “X Number Of Days”. She wrote,
performed and produced all the songs on the album and embarked on a solo tour last year in
support of it.
She is currently finishing up her third album which is slated for release in
the fall. Extremely versatile, whether playing solo acoustic with her darkly poignant and
mesmerizing sound, or showcasing her more electronic side with her sultry down tempo groove,
Devore continues to be a consummate musician and prolific songwriter.
