deVon R. Gray, composer and multi-instrumentalist, is best known as dVRG in the acclaimed live rap/hip hop band, Heiruspecs. Lesser known are his classical and chamber music works, film scores, experimental collaborations (SPCO Liquid Music Series), arranging credits (Poliça, The Cloak Ox, Allan Kingdom, Chastity Brown), session work, and production. Gray, has studied orchestral conducting with world renowned artists Manny Laureano (MN Orchestra) & Donald Palma (Orpheus Chamber Orchestra); and composition with composers Lee Hyla & Michael Gandolfi, to name a few. Redefining versatility, dVRG draws inspiration from an enviable record collection, from Claudio Monteverdi to Shuggie Otis, and communicates through nuanced sounds; a musical polyglot disguised as a lone star…ready to super nova.
I've been writing (music and lyrics) to heal myself. There is power and magic in music and I don't seek to understand it, I simply live to feel it. These are new musical offerings. Please listen with open ears and hearts and minds. Yes I sing. Joining me are my friends James Everest (guitar & bass) and Davu Seru (drums).
