Check out Dev's new CD, Balboa!

"Wonderfully diverse and unusual..." The Boise Weekly, Boise, Idaho

"Master of the mouth-bow." Berkeley Daily Gazette, Berkeley, California

"...an impressive and masterful performance." Private Eye, Salt Lake City, Utah

"...a singer with a powerful voice." Chicago Magazine, Chicago, Illinois

"...folk circuit veteran, Dev Singh did an eclectic set that featured his wonderfully expressive deep, warm voice and satisfying accompaniment on guitar, dulcimer and the mouth-bow. Dev has a commanding yet warm stage presence, a voice that is deep and rich like Richie Havens but with the quaver of Buffy Sainte-Marie, and he is an excellent guitarist, featuring strong percussive picking, rich bass notes, and a nice ragtime feel. He started off with an upbeat dulcimer tune, then did a funky blues, followed by Woody Guthrie's 'Do Re Mi' done in ragtime style, with a great ending. He did a unique version of 'Mercedes Benz' on the mouth-bow, a pygmy instrument he heard of through Buffy Sainte-Marie, and explained that you cant smile while playing this instrument because it makes you go out of tune. It's difficult to keep from smiling, though, watching a man of large proportions playing a pygmy instrument. Then there was a Beatles song. But the highlight was a deeply moving song Dev wrote about a man in Vermont fighting a freeway being built on his land, with the stirring refrain, 'This is where I was born - this is where I'll die." Jack Bohl, Portland Folklore Society: Coffeehouse Reviews
