Listeners will get their first taste of that distinctive approach in October 2017 with the release of Deva’s debut EP from Motéma Music. The full scope of her voice and vision will be revealed in 2018 on Run Deep, her aptly-named first album, produced by Scott Jacoby (Vampire Weekend, José James, Coldplay) with two tracks produced by Jarrett Wetherell. The title captures not only her estimable musical bloodline but the finely-
hewn emotions that course through her songs. Deva plumbs her own emotional depths to
explore issues of overcoming adversity, battling one’s own demons and dealing with the
pains of love and loss, alongside wry observations on contemporary romance. She
breathes vivid life into those songs with a knockout voice that combines pulse-pounding
soul with a decidedly modern edge.
