Devon Mayson

Devon is a singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist whose unique style is shaped by influences from the musical worlds of Country, Folk and Pop; her debut Album ‘Lie to Me’ was released in the Summer of 2016 to critical acclaim, reached #3 in the UK Country iTunes Chart and resulted in Devon being named ‘Best UK Newcomer’ at the B&G Country Music Awards.
Following the album, she embarked on a six week tour of the UK and Europe supporting Caitlin Koch.

Described by Andrew Marston, BBC Introducing, as “Beautiful songs from an artist who’s been our BBC Introducing Track of the Week on so many occasions”; Devon’s contemporary style of country has gone on to become a favorite with BBC Radio 2’s Whispering Bob Harris, resulting in her recently being invited to record a second ‘Under the Appletree’ session. “Having recorded more than 400 sessions over 4 years, to stand out from the crowd is no mean feat – but Devon certainly did that. With her sensitive songwriting and soaring vocals, she possesses a rare ability to portray difficult and controversial topics in a way that makes them accessible and personal to the listener, with a level of musicianship and control that makes her a force to reckon with.” – Miles Myerscough Harris

“British Country is on the rise, but this piece of British country music comes heavily laced with raw emotion and integrity rather than sprinkled with the pop fairy dust of more famous offerings.” – Ian Ambrose, Maverick Magazine.
