Music and Videos 

Brooklyn singer-songwriter Kevin Devine is confirmed as direct support to Say Anything on their nationwide tour this spring. The tour will kick off on March 24th in San Francisco, CA and will make stops across the country before concluding in West Hollywood, CA on May 3rd (tour dates below). The tour features additional support from Fake Problems, The Front Bottoms (select dates) and Tallhart (select dates). Prior to heading out with Say Anything, Devine will headline a short string of dates with The Front Bottoms as support while routing to and from SXSW 2012 (showcase information forthcoming).
“Though I’ve never personally met Say Anything, we have a bunch of mutual friends and former tourmates, all of whom spoke real highly of their experiences touring with the band, and about the open and attentive nature of their fans,” said Kevin Devine. “I’ve had the pleasure of exchanging e-mails with Max over the past couple of months and have found him to be a thoughtful, sweet guy. I think the shows will be a welcome stretch for all of us.”
While down at Deluna Fest, Kevin filmed a “Snapshots” segment for NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly that can be viewed HERE. After the wildly successful festival, Devine returned to New York for a sold out CMJ show at Highline Ballroom (also the official launch event for MECA/inBloom). Kevin teamed up with Musician’s Energy Conservation Alliance (MECA) to become the first musician to use their new app, inBloom, designed by Andy Ross of OK Go and Eytan Oren. (More info on app available HERE). Kevin also recently recorded a CBS Streetdate Session – view HERE
“My collaboration with Kevin at Rob Schnapf’s was an incredibly inspirational music moment for me, and served as a strong reminder of why we collaborate as artists,” said Morgin Kibby of M83. “Subsequently remixing Kevin’s work was daunting… I had to throw all caution to the wind and commit to giving him something unexpected; he was totally game and I’m thrilled he liked the outcome.”

Known for his acoustic musings Kevin Devine’s latest release, Between the Concrete & Clouds debuted at #5 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Without losing his lyrical density, Kevin explored the technical side of creating structurally more traditional pop songs, evident in the shorter tracks on BTC&C. Devine has received numerous accolades from press and fans alike over the span of his nine year career. His discography includes several EPs and live albums, as well as past full-lengths Circle Gets the Square (2002), Make the Clocks Move (2003), Split The Country, Split The Street(2005), Put Your Ghost to Rest (2006), Brother’s Blood (2009), and Bad Books (2010), a side project Kevin worked on with Andy Hull and other members of Manchester Orchestra. Kevin has played with top artists including Bright Eyes, Manchester Orchestra, Okkervill River, Earlimart, and many more, and has performed at the following festivals: Coachella 2010, Bonnaroo 2010, Bamboozle 2010, Lollapalooza 2009, Austin City Limits 2007, and Soundwave 2008 (Australia).
