Devon is a 21-year-old multi-instrumentalist from the sleepy town of Newnham in the Forest of Dean. His ear for an infectious chorus and his energetic live performance has taken him from writing songs in his parents’ house to stages across the UK. This year he released the single I DONT WANT 2 B UR FRIEND, launching as BBC Radio 1 Indie Show's 'Next Wave', and since has had multiple further plays on Radio 1, along with support from John Kennedy at Radio X. The introductory track on UMOD has notched up no less than 1/4 million streams thus far across all platforms. Following multiple reputable tips in RotD’s Ones To Watch and Compass features, the accompanying music video launched with a premiere on TMRW magazine, showcasing Devon's eye for fashion and his energetic live performance. He has finished this year with 2 successful headline shows, including a gig at London's Camden Assembly, and a much coveted performance at SWN Festival in Cardiff.
UMOD will be releasing at least 3 singles from Devon in 2020, starting with indie-pop banger 'BELONG 2 U' in late January. This will be followed by singles in May and September, supporting his very busy gigging schedule. Having already grown his live following at 2019 events including Truck Fest, current 2020 targets include all major inner-city festivals (Great Escape, Live at Leeds, Dot to Dot, Liverpool Sound City etc) along with further support tours across UK and Europe. Singles will again have a strong streaming and radio push, capitalising on current tastemaker support and growing into playlist additions across credible specialist and into the crossover mainstream that we know he is destined for. All of this will be documented and promoted across Devon's very engaged socials, showcasing his witty and unique personality which has helped him attract and maintain his dedicated fanbase.
