Bio

Devorah is many things.

She is a singer coined ‘The cathedral voice inside a tiny church’.

She is a songwriter, who has been acknowledged and praised by some of the greatest minds, including Leonard Cohen who prior to his death in 2016, praised her publicly and privately.

She is patient and calm, unwilling to bend for the ever-changing musical landscape.

She is somewhat antiquated- a painter as much as a woman of music.

In the last few months Devorah has quietly been performing around Australia, and the whispers of her presence are growing.

In August Devorah will be releasing her first single ‘Wrong Time’.

It’s withdrawn production and story of unrequited love is an engaging first offering.

Recorded by Lawrence Greenwood (Whitley) in a shack on the South Coast of Australia, completed by Benjamin Riley and Xavier Dunn, it’s simple complexity was often hard to find.

The single shot video, Shot by Yoav Lester, perfectly compliments the song, slowly revealing a depiction of the choking feeling that comes from heartache.

Beautiful vocals (as expected) with a sense of longing that is as much magic and it is sorrow. This is definitely a tune to listen to whilst eating a tub of ice-cream or a block of chocolate to.
