Biography

(1999 – present)

Devon Sproule (born 23 April 1982, in Kingston, Ontario) is a Canadian folk-blues musician based for many years in Charlottesville, Virginia, and latterly in Berlin, Germany. She released her first album when she was 16. In 2009 she shared the prestigious ASCAP Foundation Sammy Cahn Award with Oren Lavie. She married American singer-songwriter Paul Curreri in 2005.

A talented singer and songwriter, Sproule began her musical career when she was still an innocent-eyed child. She managed to record two full-length albums and tour with some of the music world’s biggest names even before she hit the age of 20. Her first album drew rave reviews from most critics and put her on the often rocky road toward stardom.

Sproule was born in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, in the spring of 1982. She grew up in a household filled with music and family and friends. She admits some of her influences include Bikini Kill, Frank Zappa, and even some of the classic rock & roll groups her parents loved, like the Beatles. At a young age, Sproule practiced vocal harmony with her father. Later she used his old guitar to strum out her first tentative notes. By the time she was 15, she was putting her musical talents to work, playing in front of local places for change from those who stopped to listen. There was never any other dream in her mind but music, and luckily no one to tell her it was the kind of dream that was out of reach.
