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.
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!
