Montreal based artist and singer-songwriter Charmian Devi just released her two latest singles, “No Peace” and “Radio Of None,” two brilliant alternative rock songs that see the accomplished artist at her sharpest and most inspired self, and although that is no extraordinary fact knowing her impressive background, she unleashes her poetry like never before in these new songs.
Described by Bob Dylan’s bassist, Tony Garnier, as songs that remind him “of bands like the Velvet Underground, raw, intuitive, and in tune with the times.”
The perfect listening experience during these crazy Covid-19 times, “No Peace” and “Radio Of None” showcase the unyielding artistry of one of the most talented alternative rock artists of her generation, one who always fought for truth and revolution.
Charmian Devi grew up in Quebec City, and has been dedicated to a life in music from the very start, thanks to her father who brought home the latest Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, and Beatles albums, as well as early traditional folk songs.
She has opened live performances for acts like 7 Year Bitch and No Means No, becoming one of the most sought-after bands in Canada.
She has recorded her latest releases with six times nominated and 3 times Grammy Award winning producer-engineer Marc Urselli, who has worked with U2, Keith Rochards, Nick Cave, Lou Reed, and many more.
The musicians who took part on her latest projects, “No Peace” and “Radio Of None,” are Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith group), Tony Garnier (Bob Dylan and the Band), Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) and Brian Marsella. Devoted to a life in music and a firm opposant to authoritarian regimes and dogma, Charmian Devi is the embodiment of everything rock n roll stands for: truth; revolution and unyielding artistry, and “No Peace,” and “Radio Of None,” are the ultimate proof for that.
