Devon Sproule

Devon Sproule’s music welcomes the magical and the tangible.  It celebrates human complication in the language of nature.  It is North American music with weirdo roots.

Since 2007, Sproule’s recordings have been released by Tin Angel Records, based in Coventry, England.  She collaborates regularly with Toronto-based band Bernice and producer Sandro Perri.  In Summer 2015, she recorded songs from a new collection, The Gold String” in Yukon and Nova Scotia.  Besides Canada and America, Sproule also tours regularly in Europe and has traveled with her music to Africa and Australia.

Devon Sproule is a Canadian/American musician living in rural Virginia, raised on eco-villages near Kingston, Ontario and Louisa, Virginia.  The 33-year-old, in addition to being a musician, is a high school drop-out, a birder, and a student of Deaf Culture and sign language. She has been married to producer Paul Curreri for 10 years.

‘Sproule’s lyrics glance off each other arrestingly, juxtaposing images.’
FINANCIAL TIMES

‘Her quirky affectations bring to mind Bjork, and forays into the dark, Michelle Shocked.’
