Italian Singer/Songwriter, Devis Gardin is a musical sponge, soaking up his experiences and the stories of others to squeeze and weave into musical tales life & love.
Heavily influenced by his father’s collection of International Pop and Rock artists, he taught himself to play guitar to express the feelings the music he was listening to gave to him. Eventually, entertaining family and friends grew into Devis participating in open-mics and acoustic gigs all around Northern Italy. That persistence led to an opportunity to play amongst great musicians at the world renowned Alcatraz Club in Milan.
Devis was soon discovered by award winning producer, Massimo Caso. “Max really believed in me, so he presented me to his production partner, KNAGUI who’s like this pioneer of Gospel-Soul. Together we recorded and released my debut single, Purple Sockson their imprint GuiMax Productions,” recalled Devis.
2020 has been a test for established artists, but it’s been like a grape press for emerging artists, still Devis has continued to forge ahead with his team in firm support. “Working with songwriter/arranger/producer Vladi Tosetto and Massimo Caso, even virtually, has been like a masterclass and process of growth. Especially because Max brings his virtuoso musicianship and classic Italian songwriting twist that challenges and refines the raw emotion of my music.”
Late Fall 2020 will see the release of Devis Gardin’s second single, Different Love. It’s a heartbreak song juxtaposed on a joyous pub feel soundscape. “Recording was an adventure. Max and I were in the studio in Milan, KNAGUI was there on FaceTime… The energy was very present,” said Devis. “I just hope, when someone asks their friend ‘have you heard the new Devis Gardin single?’ they say HELL YEAH!”
The 45rpm version of Different Love will be released exclusively on Crowd Music.
