Kevin Devine

Singer/songwriter Kevin Devine rose through New York's indie rock and emo circles in the early years of the millennium, first as the frontman for emo band Miracle of 86, and later as a solo act. Thanks to albums like 2003's Make the Clocks Move and 2005's Split the Country, Split the Street, his introspective and emotionally urgent songs about love, life, and politics won a loyal fan base that followed him through a brief stint as a major-label act. Following his 2009 standout Brother's Blood, Devine collaborated with members of Manchester Orchestra as Bad Books, a project which went on to release three albums over the next decade. He continued releasing solo albums throughout the early 2010s and in 2015 began a split-single series called Devinyl Splits which over the next four years saw him working with artists like David Bazan, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and Jesse Lacey. He also released another solo full-length in 2016's Instigator.
