Album Notes
Often compared to Al Jarreau, Barry White & Paul Robeson,
Devin Richards in his debut cd shares his love for music, love and life in this live session captured at the Metropolitan Room in NYC.

"One of the last releases of 2008 has been My Own Voice: An Evening with Devin Richards, a recording of an appearance at New York's Metropolitan Room by this performer who's been seen on Broadway in shows like 110 in the Shade, The Pajama Game, and, most recently, A Tale of Two Cities. Richards has a wonderfully mellifluous bass voice that he uses to excellent effect on a variety of tunes, from the pop classic "Fever" (delivered in not only English, but also Spanish and German) to "Too Darn Hot," which he introduces with some amusing banter about "Shade." Two other exceptionally satisfying tracks are a steamy and jazzy "With Every Breath I Take" (City of Angels) and a deeply moving medley of "Motherless Child" and "Old Man River."

Liner Notes by Tony Winner and star,

"The night Devin invited me to his debut cabaret at the Metropolitan room, I discovered so much more than the solid booming bass baritone I had come to know. Devin was engaging, funny, powerful and touching. A true solo artist. I was thrilled by his innovative repertoire and the ability to make each song truly his own. I was struck by his uncanny ability to connect with the audience in both song and in witty relaxed banter. And then there is the voice. It is a voice with so many beautiful rich colors and such incredible range. He has all of the booming bass baritone depth of Paul Robeson as well as the vocal agility and style of Al Jarreau. Yet it’s all his organic sound. It was his voice. It was truly an evening of discovery for all who were there. For me it was discovery of a part of my friend I had not known. For the audience it was discovery of a wonderful solo artist. And for Devin it was the discovery of his own voice. And what a spectacular voice it is… "

Critics have said:

"Taking an enormous risk, Richards ended the evening with "Ol' Man River" and let it simply soar, singing it with all the power and emotion the song could have. For an encore, he returned to sing White's "Best of Times," letting his audience catch their collective breaths, and letting the concert end on a high note. As debuts go, this was an impressive one, and may this cabaret be the first of many. Mr. Richards has talent and charisma to spare, and certainly belongs in the spotlight."


Devin has a Fabulous Voice!
