The Fort Worth Weekly writes-
"The gnarly beat of a bass drum and powerful hemorrhage of a bottleneck slide on a resonator guitar kicks off in fine style this third album by Fort Worth’s Devin Leigh. The singer-songwriter is a one-man wrecking crew at live performances, and his new set of bluesy self-penned songs provides plenty of opportunity to show off his instrumental wizardry. I imagine people have heard Leigh playing in bars over the years and thought, “Man, this guy is good. Why isn’t he a star?”
Devin Leigh is a multi award winning singer/songwriter/
guitarist/one man band based in Fort Worth, TX. Specializing in blues/Americana. Global Music award winner best emerging artist, national Akademia award, best blues song. He has played guitar on multiple hit songs including: "Blood Red Lincoln", which ranked #1 on the Texas Music Chart; "Last Last Time", ranking in the top #9 on the National Americana Chart, and also on Newsweek's Top 10 Buzz Worthy Songs of the Year; "Finger on the Trigger", which earned the #3 spot on CMT's Top 12 Countdown; "The Future Ain't What it Used to Be", #18 on Billboard; and "Bleu Edmondson, Live At Billy Bobs" DVD, winner of the Gruene With Envy Award. Devin was also featured on Pat Green's "Carry On" album along with other guests like Willie Nelson and David Grissom. Winner, 95,9 the Ranch Pickin Party.

You've got it going on with the level of touring, great website, product endorsements, etc., I wish you the best of luck". Billy Vera who sang the theme to "The King of Queens", wrote "Good work Devin! You have my vote!".

The Fort Worth Star Telegram writes-"Devin Leigh, the Fort Worth singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and co-owner of Hurst’s Stage Notes Music School, has released his third solo album, Chants and Incantations, and it is ripped right from the guts of his home state. A heady brew of blues, Southern rock and rockabilly, Leigh’s songs, produced by Aaron Carpenter at Dallas’ fifty50studios, ride greasy guitar riffs — 100 Miles From Home practically scorches the speakers — as easily as they do finger-picked acoustic runs (You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone bounces along nicely, evoking unplugged White Stripes). His guitar skills alone would merit a recommendation, but when combined with his pleasant vocals, these Incantations are necessary for fans of Americana."
"Devin Leigh probably doesn’t care what constitutes Texas Music. Whether he’s cranking up amplified resonators and using a slide to get a muddy mojo or fingerpicking an acoustic for a fresh-as-a-daisy timbre, his repertoire is as varied as the Lone Star terrain."
