Devall Music


Devall Music delivers a mix of Roots- Folk and Rock n' Roll based Americana from the heart of the Fingerlakes Region of upstate New York. They perform on street corners and cafes as well as full scale music venues and festivals and range from solo acoustic to full band performances.


Devall Music began in 2004 as a solo project for Aaron DeRuyter while on hiatus from the Rochester, NY band "Pompous Pilate". After two full length studio albums and regional tours, the band split and Devall Music become DeRuyter's main focus for live performance and recording. The debut album"transit" was recorded almost completely by DeRuyter over a two year period. After digesting the complexity of the mastered album, he decided that solo gigging would not always do the music justice and with the help of rotating musicians and some old friends, Devall Music became a band. Today, the backing band consists of up to eight members at times. Every show is a different experience. The only constant is DeRuyter. Some acoustic shows are reminiscent of traditional Folk and Roots while others are full on rock-tinged Americana.


2007 -full length debut album "transit" released. Radio play in Western, NY region. Tracks available online through numerous sources. A new full lenght album will be out summer 210 on dunce records.
