Devon Sproule

Singer/songwriter Devon Sproule was born in Kingston, Ontario, in the spring of 1982 and grew up on a sprawling hippie commune in rural Virginia. She admits some of her influences include Bikini Kill, Frank Zappa, and even some of the classic rock & roll groups her parents loved, like the Beatles. At a young age, Sproule practiced vocal harmony with her father. Later she used his old guitar to strum out her first tentative notes. By the time she was 15, she was putting her musical talents to work, playing in front of local places for change from those who stopped to listen. There was never any other dream in her mind but music, and luckily no one to tell her it was the kind of dream that was, for most people, out of reach.

Sproule recorded her self-titled debut album a few years later, billing herself simply as Devon. That album -- really, her voice on that album -- drew a lot of interest, and in the end landed her a spot touring as a side act with the Dave Matthews Band. For 2001, Sproule released a second album, Long Sleeve Story, under the Three Word Records label. She had some pretty impressive help on her sophomore release, such as drummer Nate Brown, bassist David Saull, trumpeter John D'earth, and bass player Stefan Lessard, who also served as producer for the album.

Sproule pulled stakes and headed north soon after the release of her second album, moving from sultry Charlottesville, VA, to snow-bound upstate New York. The move signaled a change in Sproule's songwriting. Her 2003 album, Upstate Songs, was stripped of the slick alt-rock feel of her previous work and found Sproule returning to her acoustic guitar-driven folk roots. Critics loved Upstate Songs; Rolling Stone said it was "perhaps the sweetest and most honest folk pop album recorded this year." Sproule moved back to Virginia and married fellow musician Paul Curreri soon after the album was released. Her fourth record, a shimmering, country-tinged effort called Keep Your Silver Shined, followed in 2007. ~ Charlotte Dillon, Rovi

It's really a shame Pandora still has so little of her work. She's got such an impressive catalogue.

We lived in Charlottesvi l l e from 2000 to 2002. I worked with her mom. Devon was an early influence on my little daughter, then 6, who met her and hung out with her a couple of times, and bc of her she took up the guitar. Devon was then, and from her music still seems to be, a very open soul. My daughter followed her for awhile until her own music dreams moved her on a path all her own, the violin/fiddl e . I credit folks like Devon for inspiring my daughter's musical aspirations. It's good to see
This is still my favorite of her albums. There is a sweetness to her voice and a spare production which is very lyrical. Devon is awesome.

"Keep Your Silver Shined" is what people need to be listening to.
Why don't you have "Keep Your Silver Shined"?
