Devin is currently working on an album of unreleased Shitting Glitter songs, following the death of co-founder and lead vocalist/lyricist, Amy Crosby, in February 2021. Devin, Amy, and Von Edwards formed Shitting Glitter in 2001 and Devin remained a member until 2010. He is currently working with other former members of the band to complete the new release, to be titled “Damn Skippy Baby.” The first release from the album is a ballad called “Sistere,” which means ‘to stand still’ in Latin; it was originally written for a holiday show the band played at Cafe Muse in 2007. Here is the video, which was directed by Jasten King.
Recollection 2010-2020 is a 2-disc compilation of Devin’s work over the last decade+ including singles, remixes, and alternate versions. Devin worked with frequent collaborators Brandon Strecker, Hoagie Hill, Sphat-90, and Little Pioneer to remix and remake select songs from his catalog, as well as presenting alternate and unreleased material. The collection includes a new track, “Could This Be Heaven (Frankreich Mix)” by Sphat-90 featuring Devin Tait, and the single “To Be Young & On Downers” with a music video directed by Jasten King.

In celebration of “Recollection: 2010-2020” Devin worked with Jasten King on a “quarantine music video” project for the track To Be Young & On Downers.
The alternative edit of the video for Anyone Can Break Somebody’s Heart (Naked Highway Remix) featuring Wendy Ho was released on Valentine’s Day 2020, one year after the original version was released.
By My Side features Niki Svara on vocals with Devin, and Christopher Freeman on bass. The video from Ravensview Film 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.
Electro-pop musician Devin Tait’s second full-length solo album Art Damage (released March 2019) is available worldwide, featuring the single and video 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, GAYC/DC); Jordan von Haslow; Kraig Hill (Seamonster Sounds); Scott Anderson (Solar City Music); and his longtime collaborator Bradley Jacobson as co-producer.
