Madison Theatre at Molloy College Presents... Kevin Devine
Kevin Devine is an American songwriter and musician from Brooklyn, New York, who is known for alternately introspective and political lyrics and melodic acoustic guitar songs.
For nine wildly productive years, since the 2002 release of Circle Gets the Square, Kevin Devine has been tireless and fearless in exploring the possibilities for his music. It seemed his moment had come when Capitol Records released Put Your Ghost to Rest in 2006-but the following year, he was dropped during the label's merger with Virgin Records. Seizing this as an opportunity, Devine committed to building his growing fan base through constant touring, and the results were the most successful and widely acclaimed music of his career with Brother's Blood and Bad Books, a side project with Andy Hull and other members of Manchester Orchestra.
His work on stage and in collaboration with other musicians emerged instantly when he began the actual recording of Between the Concrete & Clouds. "The first time we got into the studio and played 'Off-Screen,' and the chorus kicked in, I knew this was different, and awesome," he says. "The guitars felt jangly and Peter Buck-y, and the chorus leapt up and knocked me on my ass. The band played it the way I imagined it, without me having to say 'I think it should go like this'-and that's the way 90 percent of the sessions went."
