Devin White is an R&B musician and talent scout for Rel Carter, Roc Nation executive and nephew of rap icon Jay-Z. Together they launched ‘The Culture Tour’ in 2017, a national platform designed to educate upcoming creatives on the inner-workings of the music industry.Devin previously served as executive assistant to Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation records A&R division and currently curates artistic programming for an array of non-profit organizations and label affiliates. Delvin has hooked up with SaVannah for ‘Don’t Forget The Love’.
Their take on ‘Don’t Forget The Love’ is more melodic and even has something of an orchestrated quality, but it bubbles with a modern sheen thanks to its R&B music leanings. This collaboration produces memorable results with this release, a likely preview of the quality we should expect from both Devin and SaVannah.
We decided to catch up with both for an interview..
What inspired you to get into music?
Devin: JayZ and The Jacksons. I always loved all parts of the music business not just the stage.
SaVannah: I fell in love with performance first and very early on as Young Nala in the Lion King. As I got older it just stuck with me.
How would you describe your music?
SaVannah: We are different in this way (laughs). I think Devin is more mellow than me. Very groovy and funky. He loves adult contemporary.. I do too but I’m a tad bit more ratchet then he is (laughs).
What you say is your recording and writing style?
Devin: For this record specifically it was all about the feeling. You figure out the energy you’re trying to convey and then you make sure the lyrics are supporting it.
Where would you like to see your career in 5 years time?
Devin: Time is a magical thing so I don’t like to jump ahead of it too often but I know the music I’ve made will touch millions because that’s what it was created to do. That level of conviction to believing in what I do wasn’t always there.. but I own it now.
SaVannah: I love dance and it’s my first love so I know it will be spiralling around music with a bigger concentration in dance.
Where can music fans listen to you?
Devin: Everywhere.Search our names and we are there waiting forYou 😉
