"What a pleasure to find a young band that really gets the blues. Deep and true tothe roots. Really digging them. Glad they’re on the scene.” -Bonnie Raitt"Love them!

They are great!"- Elvin Bishop "

HowellDevine plays with the original feel, intent and spirit-it knocks me out tohear them play such quality blues." -Charlie Musselwhite This is the kind of blues you don't hear anymore. The raw slide guitar played by Joshua Howell evokes the Mississippi Hill Country greats such as Fred McDowell and RL Burnside. The rhythm section of drummer and percussionist Pete Devine, along with the bass Joe Kyle Jr., breaks from the norm in blues, providing rich and complex textures integral to the music rather than a simple backing section for a soloist.The result is a sound which stands in stark contrast to the typical blues heard in bars these days and would more likely be shaking the floors of a Southern juke joint some 70 years ago. HowellDevine brings life back to that sound, infusing the rural blues with their own unique style.
