Technically, Kevin Devine is not an indie band so much as a singer-songwriter. You’re all gonna have to forgive me though, seeing as the segment is called “Indie Bands You Should Know.” I first heard of Kevin Devine as a member of Bad Books, an indie supergroup that he is a member of along with Andy Hull of Manchester Orchestra. So one day, I decided to search his name on YouTube and see what popped up. I listened to the song “Cotton Crush” (where Jesse Lacey sings backing vocals) and was astounded at how brilliantly Kevin was able to combine acoustic songwriting with the noise of punk-rock. I listened to more of his music and discovered that I had actually stumbled across one of my favorite artists in a long time. Check out some of his best songs below.
