So it’s like all your dreams come true when you are
able to assemble some of the best musicians in rock history to come together
and feature on one project but for that to happen you need to be loaded with
talent and Charmian Devi is indeed totally loaded with talent.
Based in Canada, after her father emigrated from London to
Montreal, Charmian Devi has spent her life as a musician, from melodic garage
bands through to lead singer and songwriter for 90s punk band, Wretched Ethyl
who became one of Canada’s most talked-about bands, opening for the likes of
Seattle grunge legends, 7 Year Bitch and punk icons, Nomeansno. Their demise
after four fraught years sadly coincided with the tragic death of her husband –
it was from the burning embers of this dark and harrowing time that Charmian
Devi relocated to London for two years to rebuild her life. Still haunted by
her turbulent past, she returned to Canada and a new Charmian emerged, a
songwriter and musician who was truly able to crystallise her experiences and
express them through her music.

But what happened about the stuff concerning all the
superstar names involved in the project and a little bird or actually the cool
guys at Quite Great PR, told us there was also a top, top producer involved. Ok
well we are goingt to tell you as one things for sure, Folk-rock trooper,
Charmian Devi, doesn’t do things by halves – not content with already writing
two of this year’s most infectious and seething rock songs, she assembled a
band featuring some of rock’s most revered names to do it: guitarist Lenny Kaye
(Patti Smith Group); Tony Garnier (Bob Dylan’s bass player since 1989; Tom
Waits; Paul Simon) and Sonic Youth drummer, Steve Shelley, not to mention the
talented work of Marc Urselli behind the production desk (six-times nominated
and three-times Grammy award winner: Lou Reed; Mike Patton; Keith Richards; ZZ
Top and many more!) Proving her standing among these rock luminaries, Charmian
Devi is your new rock hero.

“Charmian Devi has a unique gift for arrangements and

and fresh effort.” – Michele McManmon, The LA Indie Music Examiner.

a groovy soul that makes your go out to her.” -IndieDial.com

“I really enjoyed recording with Charmian Devi…her
songs remind me of bands like the

Velvet Underground, raw intuitive and in-tune with the
times”

Bassist, Tony Garnier

Dedicated to a life in music and resolutely opposed to
authoritarian regimes and dogma, Charmian is the embodiment of everything rock
n roll stands for: truth; revolution and unyielding artistry. Her latest
single, Radio of None is available on 8th April.

“I’ve really enjoyed producing Charmian because there are
fewer and fewer artists today that play inspired & raw folk/rock music and
are not trying to polish everything to sound more commercial. Her music speaks
the truth and she puts all of herself into her songs. That’s also why I wanted
to use musicians that are comfortable in an environment of spontaneous music
that’s rough around the edges but carries a meaning and an attitude. Patti
Smith, Bob Dylan and Sonic Youth are all raw and unapologetic and make great
rock and/or folk music with powerful lyrics and meanings, so choosing Lenny,
Tony and Steve was an obvious choice because that is exactly what Charmian does
too!”

Three-times Grammy Award-winning producer, Marc Urselli
