Elizabeth Devlin, combining an enchanting, lilting voice and Autoharp, is a NYC singer-songwriter with avante-garde-folk sensibilities; she defies traditional song structures, weaving small worlds where magic and fantasies collide.
Devlin's vocals and musical dynamism have been compared to Coco Rosie and Joanna Newsom and her poetic lyrics to that of PJ Harvey and Leonard Cohen. The new album, Orchid Mantis, released in February 2017, received 4.5/5 from Impose Magazine. Orchid Mantis, Devlin's third full-length album, is the follow-up to previously released albums: For Whom the Angels Named (2011), Ladybug EP (2011) and All Are Relative (2009).
After completing a tour down to SXSW 2017 and back, Devlin toured France in May, returns stateside for a North-Midwest summer tour before returning to tour Eastern Europe in the Fall. In 2018/19, Devlin plans to release her fourth full-length album, My Father's Country, and will continue touring.
