Devarrow is our discovery from Canada, which we brought with us from the "Nova Scotia Music Week". Hard to believe that this young, smart guy, who is called Graham Ereaux in real life, has already released two albums in his homeland: "The Coast, The Cottage" (2011) and "The Great Escape" (2015). The EP "Palmer" finally appeared in 2017 and besides the incredible single 'Little Road' also contains other facets of the artist.
This presents Devarrow inimitable live: sometimes melancholic restrained, then impetuously diy: He has a knack for songwriting and melodies, which he has always proven solo on stage. But even with guitar, vocals and kick-drums Devarrow does more than some other bands. That's why The Dead South chose him for first joint shows in the spring of 2017, as well as to travel along as support at their next November tour to open sold-out shows.
A positive quality rating that his Canadian musician friends are not alone with: After first supportslots, solo shows and small festivals in the spring of 2016, and foremost the subsequent Reeperbahn Festival 2017, he continues to convince the audience with his "One Man Band-Show”.
While Devarrow is working on his second album, the news from Europe is falling over: Festivals Focus Wales and trend-setting The Great Escape in Brighton confirm him in their line-up. A good opportunity to put on shows in selected UK cities and to play the new songs.
Devarrow is the stage-name of Graham Ereaux, a Canadian singer-songwriter originally from Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. Known for honest songs as well as energetic, captivating and intimate live shows performed in the raconteur style, Devarrow is quickly becoming an intriguing emerging songwriter. He performs live as a one-man-band, singing, playing harmonica, electric and acoustic guitar, and a cajon as a kick drum.
Devarrow’s most recent release, The Great Escape, is eleven songs built from the sounds of an aged guitar played on damp and cold nights, drum loops created on a computer while in city cafes, and sharp double-tracked vocal inspired by the hiss of city streets. The album was meticulously written in a tiny leaky-roofed apartment while Ereaux spent a winter living in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Devarrow is currently based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and is working on his third album.
