Kevin Devine

Singer and songwriter Kevin Devine has won a loyal following in indie rock and emo circles for his emotionally urgent songs of love, life, and politics. Devine was born in Brooklyn, New York on December 19, 1979. After graduating from high school, he enrolled at Fordham University to study journalism, but in 1999 his priorities turned to music; he began performing solo at coffeehouses and open-mike nights, and soon he and Chris McAllen, a friend since high school, formed the emo band Miracle of '86 (the name came from the unexpected World Series victory by the New York Mets in that year). Miracle of '86 earned a potent following on the New York/New Jersey indie rock scene, but it didn't take long for Devine to begin thinking outside of the band's boundaries. In 2002, he released his first solo album, Circle Gets the Square, and began playing solo shows in addition to his dates with the group. In 2003, he would drop a three-song EP, Travelling the EU, and a second full-length solo album, Make the Clocks Move (informed by the death of his father and the 2004 presidential race), before Miracle of '86 finally broke up. In 2005, Devine released his first post-Miracle of '86 album, Split the Country, Split the Street; produced by two of Devine's former associates from the group, Chris Bracco and Mike Skinner; the album moved back and forth between uptempo rock and quieter, more contemplative songs. In 2006, Devine scored a major-label deal with Capitol Records and, working with producer Rob Schnapf (who had collaborated with one of Devine's key influences, Elliott Smith), made Put Your Ghost to Rest. The album earned enthusiastic reviews, but several months after its release, a merger between Capitol and Virgin Records scuttled its marketing, and Devine was dropped from the label. However, the album soon gained a second life when it was reissued in 2008 by the indie imprint Junketboy, and Devine toured in support of the new release. In 2009, he returned with his next album, Brother's Blood, released by Electric Gentlemen Records; he toured in support of it backed by his sometime touring ensemble the Goddamn Band, and with the group the Manchester Orchestra as opening act. The tour went so well that Devine and members of Manchester Orchestra formed a side project, Bad Books, who who released their self-titled debut album in the fall of 2010. In the fall of 2011, Devine returned as a solo act with the album Between the Concrete and Clouds, produced by Chris Bracco and mixed by Rob Schnapf; it was also Devine's first album is a co-release arrangement with Razor & Tie and Electric Gentlemen. In 2012, Devine reunited with Bad Books for the concisely titled Bad Books II. In early 2013, Devine joined the growing number of artists who turned to crowdfunding to finance their recording projects rather than rely on record labels; he launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $50,000 in order to produce two albums, and the target figure was reached in less than a day. After raising $114,000, Devine completed and self-released two albums in the fall of 2013: Bulldozer, a solo album produced by Rob Schnapf, and Bubblegum, a collaboration with the Goddamn Band produced by Jesse Lacey. Along with extensive global touring in support of the two albums, Devine also found time to take part in a handful of reunion shows with his Miracle of '86 bandmates, one a benefit for survivors of Hurricane Sandy. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Brother's Blood?
So good! Such great intonation and soft vocals! Hipster at heart! Go KD!
Hands down my favorite artist and one of the sweetest, most genuine people you could ever meet.
Kevin Devine can only be compared to Kevin Devine. He is an unapologetic original and that's hard to pull off these days. His is an extremely rare talent that almost makes me believe in God.
Beautiful music and meaningful message. What an awesome combination.

LOVE Kevin Devine! Run, don't walk, to buy his newest CD - Between the Concrete & the Clouds.

Kevin is one of the best artist ever. He not only has a way with words but he is the nicest guy you will ever meet. Get your hands on 'Brothers Blood' it's one of his newest albums and it's amazing! Gotz to love the Kev Dev!!!
Not quite a Bright Eyes ripoff, but pretty darn close.
this s**t is amazing!!!!
Could this guy be any more emo? Thumbs down.
Saw Kevin perform live in L.A., and he was better than his CDs would suggest. I'd go see him in a rainstorm. Without an umbrella. In a Brooklyn-boy minute.

Go Kevin...xxxo o o
he is absolutely amazing, his lyrics are so heartfelt and honest- not to mention they have gotten me through many different ups and downs.
love him!!
nice to make your aquaintance kevin.

I guess I can see the comparisons. . . b u t , Kevin has political edge that doesn't quite come out in Bright Eyes or Dashboard Confessional . He may be somewhat emo, but I feel like its more raw than sappy or poetic. He's introspectiv e and personal. Granted his Circle gets the Square album is a bit too emo and whiny for me. His newer stuff kicks a**.
Yeah, what ridiculous comparison. Obviously, Dashboard Confessional , on their best day, are only half the musicians Kevin Devine is. Who writes this stuff, anyway???
I cant believe anyone would compare him to Dashboard Confessional . How dare you.
kevin devine is amazing. his music is excellent, absolutely excellent and has gotten me through a lot/helped me grow as a person. i've seen him 4 times and have got to praise him for his performances . he's great with the crowd, very very friendly, and is great live. fantastc.

i love him.

Such a cool guy. Saw him a few times when he toured with Jesse Lacey/Brand New. Great music, really gets the crowd going!
I found Kevin Devine when looking for artists similar to Bright Eyes. Once I found him I thought his music superb, and bought his first album. Soon after doing this I got a message from Pandora saying that as I'm in the UK, I can't use their system any more. Not Pandora's fault, more down to the idiotic music laws in the states. Now, I can't stumble across any more musicians as I did with Kevin - worse, all the other artists that would have benefited from my money no longer will. Such a shame.
i love him. i saw him when he toured with jesse lacey and he was fantastic.
hmmm... sounds like a poppier version of Ben Kweller.
not sure if i like it necesarrily.
Fantastic music, and also one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. I've seen him play about 5 times now, and he always takes requests, banters with the crowd, and chats after the show. And, like a true musician, he mans his own merch table, if you buy a record or a shirt, I think it should be FROM the artist!
mevildaygo
he is now signed by Brand New on their record label. Procrastinat e ! Music Traitors.
Goddamn you got hot hot hot!
Sorry but this guy is a Pu$$y!
Also I love Bright Eyes (probably my favorite indie artist) but this guy easily competes
Awesome voice with great lyrics...lov e d it immediately.
simply amazing. i like the red hair too lol
cool. Has a slight Floyd/R.Wate r s feel. Love the bio! protesting the 2004 election!! lol
theporzboy
hmmm...good
good as ballz
