Devin's cool, rowdy guitar rock makes a connection between '70s Detroit rock & roll and '50s Memphis rockabilly. In 2009 the native Brooklynite (full name Devin Therriault), who cites Johnny Thunders and Iggy Pop as his strongest influences, wrote his first songs while working his day job at a shipping warehouse, self-recording a demo soon after. The demo reached Frenchkiss label founder Syd Butler, who recruited Devin to the roster in fall 2011 and released Devin's debut EP, You're Mine, that November. Devin spent the next few months writing songs for a full album and in February 2012 toured with tough roots rockers Heartless Bastards. His debut LP, Romancing, arrived that April.
