SPOTLIGHT ON REVOLT: Devin Kirtz "My Day"

Get to know the upstart and check out his video in rotation on REVOLT.

Bio: Argentine/American, future soul artist Devin Kirtz was born and raised in Long Beach, California. His upbringing featured soul and oldies, which Devin grew up with by listening to artists like Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder and then on to Neo-Soul's best, including Lauryn Hill. Although Devin has been singing since he learned how to talk, he first made a name for himself in sports, signing a contract out of high school to play professional soccer. After a few short years, he left the game to put his skills towards his true passion: music. Devin's charisma quickly gained the attention of international mega-brands, leading to multiple endorsements and traveling the world to host events, perform music, and showcase his freestyle soccer skills to crowds of up to 100,000 people working with brands such as Nike, Red Bull, Budweiser, Chevy, Kia and Cheetos.

Captivating, smooth and the perfect blend of soul, pop, and R&B are all ways that artist on the rise Devin Kirtz could be described. His latest single, "Move" was beautifully paired with a sleek, black and white music video shot in the California desert, directed by Rob Witt and Alex Delgado. This caught the attention of Power 106 DJ Felli Fel and many other DJs, who went on to play the song on heavy rotation. His music spread globally when tracks were picked up by H&M, Nordstrom and Hollister & Co., the latter of which included it on their holiday playlists that were distributed worldwide.

Devin has written/recorded with some of LA's top producers such as BattleRoy (Bruno Mars, Eminem, Demi Lovato), Marley Waters (Tinashe, DJ Mustard) and Paul Couture (Iggy Azalea, Pitbull, Shwayze). In addition to his own music, Devin has also written for other artists, including Cody Simpson, Jordin Sparks, Quincy and Jason Mraz to name a few. Growing up on the beach with a strong love for soul and hip-hop music, Devin was the perfect fit to be featured on “Ms. Fortune,” the most popular song on Shwayze's most recent album Shwayze Summer, which reached #6 on the iTunes hip-hop charts.

Devin has multiple national tours under his belt, playing sold-out shows in top markets such as New York, Dallas, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Devin also held a six-month residency performing at Hyde at The Bellagio in Las Vegas, as well as playing Labor Day Weekend at The Palms with Kendrick Lamar, LL Cool J and Ashanti.
