Born in California just outside of Fresno, then moving to Kentucky around the age of 13, the independent Christian Rock artist Devin Williams grew to love various genres of music. Growing up in a household filled with musicians, Devin was captivated by music and entertainment at an early age. As a kid, Devin admired old school favorites like Ray Charles, Elvis, Michael Jackson, Willie Nelson, and Kenny Rogers. Although you will find fingerprint influences from bands like Soundgarden, Papa Roach, Shinedown, Breaking Benjamin, and Skillet in his music, Devin has forged his own distinctive Modern Rock sound.
Forming a cover band at only 15-years old, they played several hometown gigs and loved every minute of it. As Devin began listening more intently to how artists write their songs, he began to understand how they told stories through musical lyrics. Studying music performance in Florida during his college years, Devin put together a rock band and played concerts all over central Florida, and then eventually made the move to Music City.
Devin is a seven-time BillboardTop 30 Christian Rock artist and is releasing his latest single “Every Eye” Friday, March 19, 2021.
