Devi is increasingly being hailed as “one of the East Coast’s most outstanding guitarists”. (Good time) led to the opening of niches for artists like Ana Popovic and Marshall Crenshaw, and Memphis, MT festival dates. Devi is the first female guitarist to endorse Homestead Amplifiers, which makes custom amps for Gov’t Mule, Gary Clark Jr. and Jimmy Herring. She is also a Fender and Shubb Capo artist.
Devi fell in love with the electric guitar as a child, listening to her teenage neighbor play Led Zeppelin while he worked on his car and his brother’s rock albums. “I always sang the guitar solos, instead of the lyrics,” says Devi. Growing up in this Milwaukee suburb, however, she understood that only boys played in groups.
When she saw Bonnie Raitt play in college, Devi could no longer stifle her urge to play. She bought a Fender Mustang from a pawnshop and moved to New York City. There, Devi joined punk groups, touring the United States, Canada and Europe.
As a solo artist, however, Devi created a classic rock sound of Meet the Americana that allowed him to satisfy his love of guitar solos. Devi’s self-produced debut, Get it for free (True Nature Records / Redeye), received high praise from Vintage guitar, Leg, Marie Claire (Italy), International Guitar.
Devi returned to the studio to produce it Little wild girl EP. “Wild LIttle Girl reflects my desire to encourage girls and women to be creative and free, and to realize their potential,” said Devi.
Devi is also the author of the popular blues glossary The language of the blues: from Alcorub to Zuzu (preface by Dr John), who won the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award for Outstanding Book on Music. The book is presented by Bonnie Raitt, Joe Bonamassa, Hal Willner, Ministry singer Al Jourgensen, Ed Sanders, Bob Margolin and Jimmy Vivino.
