Devon Sproule & Friends At Strange Brew says
May we present ourselves...Devon Sproule w/ special friends Ethan Azarian & Jeff Johnston, Linsdey Verrill & Dan Grissom

Austin, I've missed you so! No more 1/2 price Gourmand's nachos all to myself. No more stinky Tim fetching sticks at Pleasant Valley. No more seeing beautiful Austin friends every day...

BUT! Thanks to Vanessa having another baby, I've got a great excuse to come down for a few weeks, and Strange Brew had this night open and Lindsey has booked the perfect billmates and oh BOY, I'd love if you guys could make it.

Tickets are here:

Doors are at 7:30pm. I think we've got an hour and a half, so Lindsey & Dan will probably play 30min, Ethan & Jeff 30min and then we'll do a Dev set -- some songs solo, some joining forces.

“I’m imagining a golden string that is connecting everything but especially, beings where love has been. I’ve imagined it again and again so often, it isn’t even imagining, it is making it happen.”

Devon Sproule’s music welcomes the magical and the tangible. It celebrates human complication in the language of nature. It is North American music with weirdo roots.

Since 2007, Sproule’s recordings have been released by Tin Angel Records, based in Coventry, England. She collaborates regularly with Toronto-based band Bernice and producer Sandro Perri. In Summer 2015, she recorded songs from a new collection, “The Gold String,” in Yukon and Nova Scotia. Besides Canada and America, Sproule also tours regularly in Europe and has traveled with her music to Africa and Australia.

“Sproule’s lyrics glance off each other arrestingly, juxtaposing images.” (Financial Times). “Her quirky affectations bring to mind Bjork, and forays into the dark, Michelle Shocked.” (Village Voice)

Devon Sproule is a Canadian/American musician living in rural Virginia, raised on eco-villages near Kingston, Ontario and Louisa, Virginia. The 33-year-old, in addition to being a musician, is a high school drop-out, a birder, and a student of Deaf Culture and sign language. She has been married to producer Paul Curreri for 10 years.
