Kevin Devine is amazing. He has been one of my favorite artists ever since I saw him open for The Get Up Kids in Tampa three years ago (along with Mansions—see my interview with them!). I have seen him three times, and it is never enough.
Kevin recently released the album Between the Concrete and Clouds in September of last year. If you haven’t already checked it out (come on…), you definitely should. I don’t know how he does it, but he continues to produce music that is exceptional and addictive. I’m still listening to it, and I snatched it up as soon as it was released.
I was just given the chance to interview Kevin at his show at The Masquerade in Atlanta this weekend. This was pretty much a dream come true for me, as Kevin is an artist that I truly admire and feel honored to have featured in Vinyl.
So go ahead! Check out the interview below- we get into his album, tour, inspirations, what’s next, and updates on the new Bad Books release. Enjoy!
Emily is an over-enthusiastic lover of music, books, movies, fashion, and culture in general. Her love of music spans across all genres (what is a genre anymore? she waxes poetic to herself), though she was nursed on true punk and will never understand “redneck country” music – tractors are not and cannot be sexy. Emily currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and considers herself to be a great wit, though she is still waiting on validation from a credible source.
