ABOUT ME

SINGER | COACH

"It's all about freedom. I want to feel free when I'm singing, and I want to help other artists unlock that for themselves. But most importantly, I want people to feel free when they're listening to either of us."

-Devin Velez

At the end of the day, Devin considers himself to be an artist through and through. Whether in the studio, a writing session, or on a stage, Keith Urban said it best… “Devin, you were born to sing!”

 

Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Devin has been singing since he was two and a half years old. From sitting in the sound booth with his mother, who was also a singer, to singing at church and in choir, all the way to the stages of Hollywood on American Idol, Devin has honed his craft and expanded his genres and styles throughout the years.

 

After finishing 8th place on Season 12 of American Idol, Devin went on to sing for private events, went into the studio & started songwriting with and for others.

 

One of the best parts about being a performer is getting to meet and collaborate with other artists/people. Devin has shared the stage with icons like Mariah Carey, Frankie Valli, Smokey Robinson, Gospel’s Candy West & American Idols like Kris Allen, Melinda Doolittle, Rayvon, Malaya,… the list goes on!

While off the stage, Devin performed and held interviews with Jay Leno, Ryan Seacrest, Live! With Kelly & Michael!, Extra with Mario Lopez, Good Day, Chicago, L.A., & even more while on tour!
