"We make art to witness that we are not alone and that God is still speaking." - Devon Love
Hello, Devon! Thank you so much for joining us today. First things first, I’d love to know, how did you first discover your passion for music?
Devon: I started piano lessons at five years old under the direction of my parents. I really was not driven to practice and the instrument made little sense to me. I wanted to try again as an adult. During the pandemic, I was furloughed from my job so I used the unemployment funds to put myself through piano classes and lessons. In short, I showcased potential as a child but really didn't do music professionally until I was an adult.
What three words would you say best summarize your music as a whole?
Devon: As a whole my music is becoming soulful, piano-driven and emotional.
I see you come from a musical theater and gospel choir background! How has this influenced the music you make today?
Devon: The musical theater really shows up in the recordings whether I want it to or not. I have recieved positive comments about songs sounding like they should be on Broadway. Singing with an all black gospel choir as teenager is where I really feel that soul influence come across in my singing.
Tell me about your latest single and emotional ballad "Lost In Time".. what is something very special about it?
Devon: "Lost In Time" is really about a relationship that was special to me that simply didn't last the test of time due to outside forces pushing us in different directions no matter how much we both wanted it to work out. I think that song will mean different things to different people as time goes on. It's about knowing and remembering the good times even though it didn't work out. That feeling can be said for so many different situations in life. My job as an artist is to help people come to understand their life, situations better and help people understand their feelings better.
What is your interpretation of being an artist? What does it mean to you?
Devon: Being an artist is not just a job it's something to have strive for in all areas of life. After I finished my vocal warm-ups last night, I started painting in my studio. A real artist is here to receive messages from the divine. Music and the arts have to be someone's calling. Otherwise, it really becomes too difficult to keep going if you don't understand your purpose.
Who are your top three musical influences?
Devon: I am influenced a wide range but if we can only do three then : Lorde, Kiko and Ollie Wride. There's definitely way more influences than that.
Do you feel being a singer and performer has always been your calling?
Devon: No! I think people have life through evolution. I believe that nobody stays the same in life and your interests change. You can love doing a certain thing/job become burnt out. I have a natural gift for singing but that doesn't mean I HAVE TO be a performer if it no longer brings me joy. I plan to do music my entire life because it is the only thing that has made my personal suffering and emotional pain even remotely tolerable to live through that is why most people do music.
How do you want your music to help or affect other people?
Devon: I think every artist hopes to help people in some manner. But, I hope for even just one person that my song can help you get through a rough day that you could have been having. I'm here to mirror your emotions and your feelings back to you so that can move forward with the validation of knowing another human being has had the same experiences in life as you. We make art to witness that we are not alone and that God is still speaking.
Most artists say that through their art they learn more about themselves, heal injuries… in what ways has music helped you?
Devon: Music has provided a great deal of structure and organization to my life. I have to be so meticulous and organized to self-release a single on time with no help from a label. I am seeing the benefits of on the personal end being able to hold myself accountable. Accountability leads to better results in all areas of life so I've evolved in the process of making this music.
What is the next “big thing” the world can expect from you, Devon?
Devon: I am striving towards a lot of different things. There will be a new song in 2023 that gets dropped. A lot going on private that is not time to discuss but things are really good.
