Artist Watch: Getting To Know All About Reva DeVito

Monday, September 19, 2011

Don'tcha kind of hate being behind on great underground artists? There are so many (thank you Internet!), and so little time in the day to discover them all. I say this as a "under-paid" music blogger who gathers up musical 'late hall passes' like no other. If only I had a personal assistant.... So when I fell upon Reva DeVito and her track, "Baby What You Do To Me" I was at first floored at how wonderful the song was and how Reva's voice sounded. Then I was angry with myself that I'm just now hearing about this Portland, Oregon chanteuse. Missing out on great music is just a total crime!

To play catch-up, last year she released the five song EP, The Catnip Collective. Immediately Esthero came to my mind as it's the perfect little antidote for a chill-out-max-n-relax evening but with a bit of spunk in there. Along with "Baby", "Nasty Stuff" and "Boogie Damn" are grooves that shouldn't be missed. Reva is currently in the process of working on her debut LP, as well as working with fellow Oregonian producer/DJ, Roane Namuh on a joint project. The first installment, "Should Have Known" was released just this week for interweb consumption. Very good stuff to be heard here.
