"Devin White Talks Debut Album, Making Pop Music in D.C."

I often write about Washington, D.C., as a saturated rap region, where everyone born after 1985 seems to rap or make beats for their friends.

And that's not to knock aspiring MCs and producers; in fact, that stubborn zeal makes the city tick. Strangely, though I'll come across the occasional pop artist, it's rare to find an aspiring pop star.

So how about a pop artist with a stage show that includes 11 dancers and a choreographed dance routine? That can't happen in D.C., can it? Tell that to Devin White.

"I'm just big on theatrics," said White, 21, a graduate of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts. "I feel like pop allows you to do that—to get that big sound and all of that big imagery. I try my best to create music in general that people will respond to."



Until now, White's electro-pop projects have garnered only modest support. Most recently, the Virginia Beach native released his debut album, iCRed, through his website. He also plans to release the album through iTunes, Amazon, and other digital outlets.

Devin White was Born September 8th 1989, In Virginia Beach, Virginia. He developed a love for music at the tender age of 10 and when most kids were mastering cursive handwriting, He was studying the gracefulness and etiquette of some of today's most seasoned entertainers. His love for music led him to musical theatre for much of his early childhood and he eventually attended the renowned "Duke Ellington School Of The Arts" with a focus in Theatrical Arts. Though acting fed his fetish for stage performance, he could not escape his desire towards music. Devin is passionate about being involved in every aspect of creating. From mixing to mastering to mic levels and melodic arrangement, Devin takes the driver seat.

Devin is constantly creating and learning and is responsible for the creation and engineering of every track he's recorded. "I think it should be mandatory that an artist develop a understanding and comprehension of working behind the scenes of their music. No one can create what you have in your mind but you. Whether your choice is artistically the most feasible is besides the point, an artist must take their craft in their hands and be completely responsible for the success or failure of each and every artistic endeavor."iCRed" is the first digital release from upcoming Pop recording artist, Devin White. The Interscope Records distributed release sports top notch Dance and R&B chart worthy anthems, including the release's first single, "Pulse" which garnered over 6,000 hits in less than a month of its official release. Other high points of the album include the Smooth and Sultry midtempo, "Rollercoaster", the bass heavy dance classic, "Let's Rock" and the gritty, techno driven "Like A Slave." Filled with rich melodies, intriguing concepts and a broad international/Urban appeal, "iCRed" is only the beginning of Devin's musical exhibition.
