Album Notes
“Be Yourself,” takes a different approach to children’s music, using funky drum and percussion grooves as the foundation to teach children about the importance of individuality. The CD empowers, uplifts and inspires children to embrace and celebrate what makes them unique.

The Uncle Devin Show is an interactive musical experience for children by the Children's Drumcussionist - Uncle Devin. It uses percussion instruments to cultivate the minds of children and takes them on a magical journey through the Land of Percussion - a dynamic cross between DC's Trouble Funk and Schoolhouse Rock. Uncle Devin allows children to hear, see and play different percussion instruments.

Uncle Devin is a national leader in the children’s music industry. His “Uncle Devin’s Drum Tales” CD won a 2013 Parents’ Choice Presentation Award and his children's book, "The ABC's of Percussion with Music CD," was named a 2015 National Parenting Publication Awards Bronze winner. He is also a Teaching Artist and Artist Roster member with Young Audiences/Arts for Learning - Maryland, where he performs Assemblies and Residencies in schools throughout the state.

Uncle Devin is also the founder of I Am WEE Nation, an online music radio station for children of African descent and beyond. It provides age and culturally appropriate children's music of different genres beyond the mainstream, including Hip-Hop, Funk, Jazz, Go-Go and Reggae, through free online streaming that culturally affirms and nurtures our future generation.

Uncle Devin has been performing as a drummer and percussionist for over 30 years, playing with local and international groups such as Fertile Ground, Soul-In-Motion Players, Bottomland, the UMBC Jazz Ensemble, the Lafayette Gilchrist Project, Sense of Urgency Band and Godisheus International Funk Band. One of Devin’s greatest musical moments was when he accompanied on drums the Great Dizzy Gillespie during a 1985 Jazz Workshop in Baltimore, MD. Devin’s vast experience as a social justice organizer is expressed in his music.
