Devon Beck, a 2020 high school graduate, has recently made the move from her hometown in Central Pennsylvania to Nashville to pursue her singing and songwriting career.
Since settling in Music City, she has quickly garnered attention from artists, songwriters, and insiders. On June 17, 2021, Devon's song 'Mirrors' was the "Here For This" Feature of the Day on the The Ward Guenther Show (EP.159) on Apple Music. The Whiskey Jam co-founder also interviewed Devon on June 21, 2021, as part of his Hot Wax Hot Minute feature (EP. 160). Devon has also performed at Nashville's famous 'Whiskey Jam' multiple times. Country star Jimmie Allen also featured her on his Instagram New Artist Showcase and named her as an “artist to watch” after the release of her EP, One Sided Expectations. Devon was also asked to perform at Pennsylvania’s 2020 & 2021 York State Fair by Scott Donato, radio personality with Forever Media’s Froggy 107.7, because “If you have not seen her yet, you will become an instant fan.” After performing, he said "there are not many artists that could captivate an audience for 40 minutes with just their voice and a guitar which is why so few people can do it.... and Devon just did that!"
In August 2021, Devon competed in the Citadel Spotlight LIVE Battle of the Bands Contest and won a spot to play at the 2021 Country Spirit USA festival that featured Miranda Lambert, Brett Young, Maddie & Tae, Jon Langston and Lily Rose. Devon has also been scheduled to open for Joe Nichols, Jon Langston, Everclear, Sam Grow and Nate Barnes.
With her mature lyrical approach and soulful vocal delivery, Devon draws you into her music. Her smooth, distinctive voice envelopes the likes of Maren Morris and Adele into her unique sound. She seamlessly fuses together country and pop flavors in her work, bridging the middle ground between country twang and soulful pop.
Devon’s debut EP, One Sided Expectations, was released on her 18th birthday in July 2020. The four-song recording is an honest and genuine reflection of the heartbreak and turbulent relationships Devon has experienced; however, the lyrics are heartfelt and relatable at any age. The title track doubles as track one. One Sided Expectations leads the listener down a path of letting go of unmet expectations. Track two, Love Me or Get Lost, will make you sway as Devon sings about wanting someone to value her or not to bother. Forgive Me, track three, is a piano-driven ballad that pleas for grace and forgiveness for mistakes made. The final track, Devil in Disguise, delivers a rock sound as Devon calls out past deceptions.
One Sided Expectations was nominated for the 2020 Album/EP of the Year at the 2nd Central PA Music Awards held in July 2021. Devon won the 2020 CPMA award for Best New Band/Artist.
Devon has performed in over 250 shows and actively tours across Nashville, Tennessee and Central Pennsylvania by covering a wide variety of everyone’s favorite covers and her original music.
