In addition to his musical pursuits, Davu is a published author and a professor of English and African American literature and culture at Hamline University.
"deVon R. Gray may be the world’s last cultural enigma. The multi-instrumentalist, classically trained composer is as comfortable writing orchestral and operatic works as he is churning out jazz riffs and hip-hop swag. And he does it all so effortlessly even he is unaware that he’s working. While many creators spend hours perfecting their craft & skills, dVRG, as he is known, envisions the pen and watches the music write itself. He records and tours regularly with Brother Ali and Chastity Brown." -GreyGhost
