Come to H2 Uptown to enjoy live music by Melanie Devaney. Described by the San Diego Kensington News as “a real gem,” her music is “At times country, at times pop, she’s like a mix of Carole King and Emmylou Harris with confessional lyrics and heartfelt music to spare.”
Melanie Devaney is a folk-Americana singer-songwriter from the small town of Epworth, Iowa (pop. 1,700). Clasically trained in piano and holding a degree in Creative Writing, her songs are stories from her own life’s adventures and the cast of characters she has met and created along the way. With a personal mission to “create beauty and change on song at a time,” Devaney strives to use to her music to inspire others to make the world a little better through simple acts of compassion and understanding. While her music can, at times, make her come across as vulnerable, Devaney is anything but weak. When called for, her songs exhibit a commanding strength and power that can take audiences by surprise. Devaney combines the values of her rural upbringing – integrity, authenticity and hard work – with her intellectual passion for learning. The result is elegant music that is nonetheless enjoyed by audiences from all walks of life.
