THE DEVA MAHAL INTERVIEW
By Jake Feinberg

Deva Mahal is part of my generation. A generation that grew up better than their parents and had accessibility to see and hear and access more information then ever before.

In some respects if your an artist from our generation, because of this access, you tend to emulate and try and sound like this guy or that, sing like him or her, get a nose job and sing about the shallow hipsters who are now using hair on their body to fill in their patchy beards.

Deva, like myself, is trending towards the authentic individualism of pure music with her band Fredrick’s Brown. When she gets up on stage, like her dad, she exudes the music from all her pours. She sings, plays percussion and tries to borrow from the soul/gospel acts that came before her while finding her own unique voice that creates identity.

Identity in the digital age with a inflexible music industry leaves only one thing left. The Soul.
