Debra Devi - Author - Rocker - Guitarist
DEVI (pronounced “Davey”) is an exciting new rock band from Jersey City, led by singer/guitarist Debra Devi, "a supersonic fret-burner who writes hauntingly memorable songs” (JamBase).
With brothers John Hummel on drums and Kevin Hummel on bass, Ms. Devi leads “a bad-ass power trio with looks, swagger, a sense of humor and blistering chops.” (Midwest Record)
The band's debut album, GET FREE (True Nature Records/Redeye USA), has earned Debra comparisons to singers Sheryl Crow and PJ Harvey and guitarists Jimi Hendrix and George Harrison. She’s become a Fender Girl Rock Nation artist, and the first female guitarist to record for Guitar World’s Lick of the Day iPhone app.
