May Devun’s soul-stirring voice holds listeners captive with an emotional dynamism publicly described as “sensual, intense, and potent" (Contact Music), and her distinctive songwriting traits fit it skintight. She binds evocative lyrics with thematic pop and R&B styles suspended over waves of industrial elements that stem from her roots as an acclaimed rock guitarist, altogether forging an experience that is said to beg the repeat-button. Defined by major press outlets including Huffington Post, Music Crowns and Vents Magazine as “epic… honest… hypnotic… and necessary,” the SoCal-native has established herself as the quintessential songstress with “the look, the feel, the presence and the vibe.” (Sexee Mag)
In summer of 2019, May Devun teamed up with producer and mixer Mark Needham (Imagine Dragons, The Killers, P!nk) and assistant mix and tracking engineer Tyler Spratt, to remix a previously acclaimed track, “We Walk Alone." Proceeding with her new song, "Say the Words," the project expanded to feature the string-work of composer Patrick Warren (Adele, Lana Del Ray, Taylor Swift, Sara Bareilles), and the acoustic drum-work of Matt Chamberlain (Pearl Jam, Fiona Apple, Chris Cornell). "Say the Words" was released on November 8, 2019, and more studio recordings are in progress for release in early 2020.
