B.DeVINE jokes that if Prince and Jill Scott could have created a love-child it would have been her!
A singer since she could remember and a songwriter since she entered puberty, DeVINE found herself drawn to all types of music, from R&B to House and anything in between. She met Al Ross, an arranger and producer formerly with 33 1/3 Productions, who eventually introduced her to Tony White, another... talented Jacksonville native, who would become her mentor and self-proclaimed biggest fan. Over the next ten years, the two of them would collaborate by writing and arranging their own music.
After working countless hours in several studios around the city and lending background vocals for numerous local artists, she was chosen to headline the last concert performed in the Jax Coliseum before its implosion. She opened for Ja Rule, Mr. Cheeks, and Khia. More recently she has opened for National recording artists such as; TGT, Avant, RL of Next, 112, K.Michelle, & more!
B.DeVINE wrote/co-wrote three songs that appeared on Tony White's debut CD, "Street Love." She also recorded and performed the CD's intro, "Honeydripper Lady" and was featured on "Rather B" another popular song from the CD. The album is still currently available on iTunes for purchase.
In late 2010, DeVINE finally decided to embark on her debut project. A decade in the making, she carefully selected poems written for what she still hopes will be her first book, to be a part of her first musical project. After completion, DeVINE along with a few others from TyTeWork Entertainment, quickly realized that there was very little exposure for the type of music they created. Armed with only an idea and ProTools, she decided to form her own genre of music, affectionately named Pornetry, due to its infusion of intimacy-based spoken word with smooth melodies. To put it simply, it is Erotica set to music.
B.DeVINE is excited to share her EP, SoulBareHer & latest single, LovePain with the world... temperatures may get a tad bit hotter thanks to this seductive entertainer.
In addition to Tony White of TyteWork Entertainment, various producers have contributed to her upcoming project, such as The PhenomaDon Melvin "M.Geezy" Goggins of WinSquad, Melle Mel of 250Plus Productions/Team Bigga Rankin, 2Slick of NiteRider Productions, & more!
SoulBareHer...the four-song EP & LovePain, the single; are now available for purchase on all major digital music sites (i.e. iTunes, Amazon.com, CDBaby.com)
