B.DeVINE or DeVINE as she is often called is an emerging Jacksonville, Florida based singer-songwriter
/spoken word artist who’s lyrical and vocal style stir up an influence reminiscent of musicians such as Floetry, Jill Scott, and India.Arie. What makes her different from other artists is her ability to fuse multiple
genres seamlessly and her love for wordplay. "Musicians have the ability to change lives or moods with their words and their music. That in itself is a powerful thing."
She has opened for Ja Rule, Mr. Cheeks, Khia, & more. Recently she has opened for National recordingartists such as; 2Chainz, Jagged Edge, Chrisette Michelle & More!
DeVINE wrote/co-wrote three songs that appeared on Tony White's debut CD, Street Love. She also recorded and performed the CD's intro, "Honeydripper Lady" and was featured on "Rather B" another
popular song from the CD. The album is still currently available on iTunes for purchase.
In late 2010, DeVINE finally decided to embark on her debut project. A decade in the making, she carefully selected poems written for what she still hopes will be her first book, to be a part of a musical
spoken word project. After completion, DeVINE along with a few others from TyTeWork Entertainment, quickly realized that there was very little exposure for the type of music they created. Armed with only
an idea and ProTools, she decided to form her own genre of music, affectionately named Pornetry. The name was created due to its infusion of intimacy-based spoken word with smooth melodies. To put it simply, it is Erotica set to music. Literoticism, another term coined by B.DeVINE, is the ability to create and/or heighten sexual pleasure through literature and sound. DeVINE says, "I want people to feel sexy
and free when listening to the music I make." When asked if she can pinpoint her favorite song she has recorded or written, she says its rather hard. "Each song I've written and recorded holds a piece of me inside. There was something I heard, experienced or saw that inspired me to create it and that memory is embedded within my lyrics". That is the memory she hopes to share with each person her music is able to
B.DeVINE released EP "SoulBareHer" to the world in 2011, and temperatures got a tad bit hotter thanks to this seductive entertainer. She released the Tony White produced “Some Kinda Way” written and
recorded by DeVINE within 2 hours after a night of fun. Along with countless units sold, her music has also been featured in a film "Loverboy". "DeVINE Entervention" was the song featured in the horror film by Keeka Productions. She has perfomed all through Florida and her current single, "Some Kind of Way" spins nightly on WJBT 93.3 The Beat by Easy E & iHeart Radio. Recently, “Love Pain” produced by 250Plus was released to radio and is currently spinning in The Southeast and moving fast.
If there was one artist DeVINE would have loved to collaborate with, it would have to be Michael Jackson. "He was a consummate entertainer and his musical influence can be felt throughout my generation and beyond". That is the type of influence she is on her way to create. She wants to create a
legacy where people feel that she was fearless in her writing and her perfomances. "I like the rebellion of living outside the box, especially when it comes to my lyrical content and delivery." With a lack of financial
means being a major hurdle and making something longer to accomplish, it definitely has never made her consider not pursuing music as a career. It instead has made her more focused on working harder and adds value to every bit of progress of her team. She is supported by The LMS Group and managed by CEO Mrs. Dana Lewis. "Until my last breath, I will press forward towards my dreams. Her grandmother, who recently passed away, would not have it any other way. With that amount of focus and drive plus a dedicated spirit, B. DeVINE is well on her way to spreading her
angelic melodies with the world.
