This week's Making Waves artist is L Devine, a big priority for Warner Bros in 2019...
KEY TRACK: Nervous
LABEL: Warner Bros
MANAGEMENT: Major Influence
WHO: Twenty-one-year-old newcomer Olivia Devine, who goes by L Devine to avoid confusion with a porn star who shares her name.
WHAT: Pop, pure and simple. L Devine is signed to Warner Bros, who will no doubt be seeking to propel the Whitley Bay-born singer to Dua Lipa levels of stratospheric importance.
WHERE: Devine was born in the North East but moved to London to follow her musical dream.
A DEVINE INTERVENTION?
Good one. And yes, L Devine has 2019 in her sights. She released the Growing Pains EP a year ago, and the Peer Pressure mixtape and film is out this week. Recent track Nervous, complete with a sleek, LA-filmed video by Emil Nava, laid down an impressive marker.
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?
Devine originally wanted to be a songwriter, and has been honing her craft for a few years now. Sessions with a cast including John Hill (MIA, Rihanna) and Ian Kirkpatrick (Dua Lipa) have shaped a powerful, relatable sound.
WATCH OUT, THEN?
