Sean Devine’s voice sounds cracked and worn, as if it has itself been carved from an old battered timber, making it the perfect vehicle for today’s song taken from Devine’s new album Here for It All
a solid and instantly accessible set of country songs that lean to old school influences but have a sufficient edge to find favour with contemporary Americana audiences who like a little retro in their gravy.

Part Jason Isbell and part Rich Krueger, Devine’s voice is perfectly suited to straddle the line between country and folk.
Montana musician Sean Devine brings together the rugged landscape of the West, nine original songs, and a lifetime of personal experience in his fourth album, Here For It All. Devine first met the album’s producer Josh Thompson (Cody Jinks) at a concert hall in Missoula through a mutual friend, singer-songwriter Ward Davis, who introduced Devine as “the Bob Dylan of Montana.” That off-the-cuff comment compelled Thompson to request some demos and eventually to record Here For It All with Jinks’ band at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillo, Texas. Based in Paradise Valley, Devine is a fifth-generation Montanan.

Sean Devine is the Bob Dylan of Montana
Harry Kaplan, Twangrila
Sounds like a wonderful mix of Robert Earl Keen and Bob Dylan. It has a little country, folk, and rock and roll. This guy knows how to write and craft a beautiful song.
Rachel Hergett - Bozeman Daily Chronicle
Country to its core... Devine lays himself before the listener as he tells his story of heartbreak and loneliness.

I hope everyone else feels half as good as me, about Sean Devine's Austin Blues.

With incredible instrumentation and influence of great musicians, Sean's beautiful voice and powerful lyrics takes us on a Devine journey of heart break and heart ache, to recovery, and rally to rediscovery.
