Andaiye & Devine Nature (Jazz/Soul/R&B)

It’s somewhat ironic that Devin “Devine” and Philippe “the Haitian Sensation” met at a dance marathon at DeMatha High, a school better known for its athletic prowess than its musical skills. But highscool would prove to be fertile ground for developing musical relationships as well as developing their own distinctive sound. In the shadow of our nation’s capital and influenced by its home grown sound, Go-Go, Devin and Philippe honed their skills blending Go-Go- with P-funk and sprinkling that with Hip-Hop, Soul, Acid Jazz and House.
Devine Nature would lend their production and writing skills to various talented artists like Toni Blackman, Daughters of the Cipher, Marcell and the Truth, and Andaiye Scott to name a few. They have also shared the stage with well established industry heavies like The Roots, WuTang Clan, Regina Belle, Ricki Lee Jones, and Fertile Ground among others. Devine Nature released their first CD “Devine Nature presents…Neo-Funkalistic Flavaz” in 2004. The music stood out in a watered down climate of Neo Soul and predictable R&B. They won Budweiser’s True Music Live contest hosted by 93.9 WKYS. And were sponsored by Bud for two consecutive years. The band was also written up in Vanity Fairs Music Edition, fall 2004, as a band to look for.
