Biography

There are multiple artists who use the name Devlin:

1. A rapper from London, signed to Island Records.

2. A gothic metal band from Sweden, last signed to Napalm Records.

1. Rapper from United Kingdom:

It’s taken a handful of years for Dagenham resident Devlin to take his deep, dedicated lyrics out of the confines of East London and prove his worth across the North/South border. It’s now not unusual to watch Devlin causing carnage on stage in Northampton or booking shows in Amsterdam.

At 18 years of age Devlin has what can only be described as a cult following of supporters that value his intelligent and evocative lyrics, in a pool of MCs that all too often spawn monotonous and lacklustre rappers. A diamond in the rough, Devlin’s road to success began at O.T. Recordings where he still currently resides with label-mates Dogzilla, Shotz, Syer, Rachet, and Deverlish amongst others.

Devlin was first brought to O.T’s attention when he hit the airwaves on a local radio station at jus 13; even then it was easy to see he had real talent. Devlin would go up radio as much as he could with whoever would let him on, he was also writing and recording songs with friends and local producers at a very young age. It wasn’t very long before he built up a good reputation in the area. A few years later he was brought to Dogzilla’s attention again, this time by a mutual friend, Dogzy decided to give Devlin a chance and took him to the studio to check him out and lay some vocals.

    Agree with The Artist Box. He's been around for years and it's his own name (James Devlin)

    But also, LFM should sort their multi-artists out, not artists searching for every fucking band name under the sun to just get a record out.

    And, who cares? Unless your Iron Maiden and you are a cock like Bruce Dickinson is and trademark your name, then others can use that name, thanks.

    Leyasu : Your facts are well wrong there this guy was on the scene since he was 13 years old and he was born in 1989. So, he wasn't making music in 2004. And it isn't "stealing" his name is Devlin.

    @OkamiFan1 - I wonder when all these shitty rappers will stop stealing names from metal bands, considering the Devlin metal band has existed since 1994 - only about 20 years before this shitty little ''rapper'' turned up =)

    Incredible beats, but all of his lyrics seem trite.

    Man when will these lame ass metal bands learn STOP STEALING NAMES FROM MC'S especially since metal is just noise and some talentless hacks screaming.

    Отличный исполнитель! Для меня он является "вратами" в мир английского грайма, с которым я знакомлюсь только сейчас.
