BernieDevins / Press

“Illinois guitarist Bernie Devins solved the problem by thinking of his guitar as a voice, inspired by the Joe Satriani tune, "The Crush Of Love". Doing it all himself, Devins' stripped-down production is based around Cubase SX3 and BFD drums, but he is directing the audience to his guitar anyway, not the underlying instruments. Tracks such as "Hand Over Fist" and "DoubleDown" are driving numbers aimed at the six-string fanatics, whereas "Hear How I Feel About You" is ballad tempo number featuring harmonized lead lines and a trend-defying, immaculate solo. Suggestions might be to ditch the BFD drums in favor of something live (material this heavy demands it), and get outside help with the mixing and mastering. ”
