Electro-pop musician Devin Tait has released his second full-length solo album “Art Damage“ and premiered the video for the single “By My Side“. The album seamlessly covers the spectrum from Tait’s 80s electropop influences (Human League, Howard Jones) to his dreamsynth\chillwave inspirations (Chrvches, Neon Indian) and features a bevy of his favorite talents including: LGBT icon Wendy Ho; Rayssa (Demi Lovato, The Voice); Chris Freeman (Pansy Division); Jordan von Haslow; Kraig Hill (Seamonster Sounds); Scott Anderson (Solar City Music); and his longtime collaborator Bradley Jacobson as co-producer. Get it now via all major distributors including iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, and Bandcamp.
The new single “By My Side” features Niki Svara on vocals with Devin, and Christopher Freeman on bass. The video from Ravensview Films was directed by Danial J. Smith.
A fiery and fearless singer/songwriter, Devin Tait blends acoustic cabaret pop with electronic, new-wave inspired rock. Equally as comfortable behind a keytar as a drum kit, Tait has a knack for blending upbeat, feel-good anthems with more serious themes while keeping dance beats in the forefront. An Angeleno at heart, Tait hails from Kansas and has performed from Iceland to Portland and just about everywhere else over the rainbow.
In 2016, his band, Devin Tait & The Traitors, released the album “Mixed Signals” featuring the singles “Now I Know What I Want,” “You Leave Me,” and “All Mixed Up.” They released an EP titled “Spectres” in 2014.
His debut solo album, “It’s Never the Way You Imagined It,” was released in 2011, featuring the singles “Alien Nation,” “Tape,” and “Winnipeg Beach.”
He was a founding member of the queer punk band Shitting Glitter, from 2001-2010.
Tait is available for songwriting, performing, remixing, scoring, video directing/editing, and producing.
