Featured Artist - deVience (UK)
The band was established in 2013 as members Gio, Ben, Donnie, Jim and Olli came together with a common passion for making music, the group drawing together differing but seamlessly compatible individual influences which soon combined to form a distinctive new sound. 
The sound of deVience is defined by soaring vocals, traditional rock melodies, swaggering riffs and pulsating rhythms. If you like anything from classic rock to contemporary Noughties beats, your ears will be pleading for more! deVience is a fine blend of classic rock with a current and modern twist. 
So far, the highlight of the band’s journey has been a trip across the pond to Los Angeles where they played to a great reception in famous venues including The Viper Room and Whiskey A Go Go, both in the infamous on the Sunset Strip. deVience has also played at numerous established venues at home in London such as Borderline, The 100 Club and Sound. This is testimony to the fact that this band is destined for great things! 
deVience always bring no less than an electrifying performance to the stage, and make their principal objective providing YOU the audience with a memorable show. We make music not only to satisfy our own musical cravings but the cravings of those of you that yearn for this music as much as we do. To those of you that continue to fly our flag in the face of the bland, corporate dullness proliferating the airwaves: rock on! 
deVience will release their long awaited self-titled debut album on 15 July 2016. The 13 track record has already been described as a breath of fresh air for British rock music. The music is very much classic rock but with a twist that is very 2016. The rockers were recently portrayed as "somewhere between Queen, Thin Lizzy and Guns 'n Roses". 
"We are really proud of our effort and feel that this is a really strong entry into the music industry both in the U.K and worldwide," said front man Giovanni Spanó, who is also a well-respected vocalist on London's West End, "The boys and I have put in an immense amount of effort into the music, the song writing, the production and our live show, and we are very excited to share this with our old and new fans and people who love rock music as much as we do." 
The album features the singles 'Move', 'Take Me Down' and 'Holdin' Me Back', just three of the songs that form a part of deVience's electric live set that literally gets audiences on their feet. All the tracks were produced, recorded and mixed in London by Frankie Torpey and were mastered in Manchester by Bob Cooper. All tracks were composed by band members Giovanni Spanó (vocals), Ben Porter (bass guitar), Donnie Roulstone (lead guitar), Jim O'Connor (lead guitar) and Olli Carter (drums).
deVience - MOVE ('Move' was the first single off the album)
The record has been released through Broken Road Records and is currently available for pre-order on iTunes
