New Music- Devil Grass


For those of you who follow me on various forms of social-media, this might seem like old news... but it's time to finally officially announce my new band- Devil Grass.

Devil Grass came together in early September of this year, thanks to the hard work, vision, and determination of our bandleader/ frontman, Michael Roberts. Somehow, within mere months of relocating to Phoenix from the New Jersey/ Philly-area, Michael had assembled a four-piece lineup of players who had all recently relocated from the East Coast. (If you understand the nod to that irony in our name, you win a prize. Message me.)

Devil Grass is a Phoenix-based desert-rock/ dark alt-country act. 

We are-

Michael Roberts- Vocals and guitar (New Jersey)
Joshua Motley- Keys and vocals (Kentucky)
Bernard LeVautour- Bass and backing-vocals (New Hampshire)
Craig Codrington- Drums and percussion (Vermont)

We played a series of three low-key, but super-fun, testing-the-water sort of live-shows over the last couple weeks... Look for information about a more elaborate and larger-scale "official" live-debut soon. It'll be fun, I promise.

As for "sound" and "content," we're going into the studio in mid-January to record our first single (peel your eyes), but in the meantime, check out this teaser-video we put together from some press-kit demos we tracked recently... This one's a cover of a Misfits song.

Follow us on social-media for full and regular updates, and fun behind-the-scenes content...

Enjoy, and let us know what you think! 

Hope we see you at a show soon!
