Devon



Beaming with the sun-draped acoustic-pop leanings of Colbie Caillat, Grace Potter, and Sara Bareilles, 22-year old singer-songwriter Devon is a rising star on the NYC music scene. Writing and self-producing her music, Devon released her well-received debut album Love & Haight in 2014 and her sophomore album What If I in 2017. Her new EP Songs From The Back Of A Bar was recently introduced with the song “Passing Through,” which is a glaringly poignant prism refracting the unique way in which she sees and feels the world.

Rob Morrow

 

Known for his nuanced acting on hit shows Northern Exposure (which garnered him three Golden Globe and two Emmy Award nominations), Numb3rs, Billions, Entourage, American Crime Story: The People Vs O.J. Simpson, and Designated Survivor, and films including MotherFlintThe Bucket List, and the Academy-Award nominated Quiz Show, singer/songwriter Rob Morrow is making a special appearance in NYC to promote the release of “New, New Face," the debut single from Rob Morrow Band, due out June 15.

The new song was written with guitarist Carlos Calvo, a Hollywood Film & TV Coach who's taught Adam Levine, David Duchovny, David Oyelowo, and many others, to play guitar, and features rock icons Bob Glaub, bassist for Steve Nicks and Journey, and Tom Petty-drummer Steve Ferrone. Morrow and Calvo work seamlessly together creating the band’s original songs which will appear on their forthcoming debut album. Key tracks include the Paul McCartney-flavored “Good As Dead,” the moody Eagles-tinged “Man With Many Names,” the soul-searing “Nobody Wins,” the feel-good, finger-snapping shuffle of “New, New Face," the emotional tour-du-force, "Tyranny of Beauty," which has an epic Grateful Dead sounding outro, and the George Thorogood boogie of “Out and About,” which was featured in an episode of the Freeform show, The Fosters Facebook
