Devin began his musical career as the lead singer/songwriter/ guitarist of Fort Worthâs notorious Hillbilly Café. A neo-rockabilly band, they released four albums. The band won several Fort Worth music awards including Best Country and Best Rock and Roll Band as well as Band of the Year. Several Rockabilly legends asked the band to back them up, including Gene Sommers, Mac Curtis, and Ronny Dawson, and they were invited to tour with Reverend Horton Heat.
Three times Grammy nominated Pat Green was impressed enough to ask Devin to play guitar on the âCarry Onâ album. Legendary actor James Hong (Airplane, Seinfeld) personally asked for three of Devin's songs for his movie "Scandalous Behavior," starring him and Shannon Tweed.

When that chapter closed, Devin went solo, immersing himself deeper in all styles of Americana music. He began concentrating on songwriting. Legendary Texas writers like Townes Van Zandt, Paul Ritchey, and Ray Winkler gave Devin personal songwriting help. While touring with a power trio, the Devin Leigh Band, people began to take notice of Devinâs guitar skills. With the offers too great to pass up, he put his singer/songwriter career on hold and became a full time guitar player. Devin took on a job playing for Dallasâs most popular singers, Becca Daylrymple. There he forged his own unique style, blending old school blues and rockabilly with modern rock and country. He co-wrote âNo Manâs Landâ, featured on the compilation âTexas Unpluggedâ on the Palo Dura Label.

For the past five years, Devin played guitar for Austin based Bleu Edmondson. Bleu has a gritty, southern style that is full of emotion. Playing around 250 dates a year, the band headlines all the major venues from the south to New York City, selling out many of them. They released a live album âOne Voice,â in 2006 to critical acclaim. In 2007 they teamed up with producer Dwight Baker (Kelly Clarkson), to record âLost Boy.â The album, released under Smith Music, was ranked in the top 20 of the national Americana charts, and in the top ten of most Texas Charts. USA Today named the single âLast Last Timeâ as one of the top ten buzz worthy songs of 2009. It was also the number one seller on Lone Star Music for 2007! The record was named "Best Album of the year", while the band was named "Best Texas Band of the Year" at the Oklahoma Music Awards. The Bleu Edmondson Band recorded a live DVD/cod at the legendary Billy Bob's Texas, which was voted "Best Live Album", 2009 at the Gruene with Envy awards. In 2009 the band signed with the prestigious Creative Artists Agency. The most recent single, âFinger on the Triggerâ went to #3 on Cmtâs top twelve countdown. In 2010, Devin colaborated with Dwight Baker again to record Bleu's newest album, "The Future Ain't What It Used to Be."

Solo now, Devin is again fronting his band as well as playing solo acoustic shows and joinging top Texas artists such as Jason Boland and Jason Eady on guitar.

"He's a stud, man, he knows what he's doing for sure. The thing I love about Devin is he plays a much different style of guitar depending on what the song calls for. And he did all of the lead guitar work on Lost Boy and really knocked it out of the park. He's so diverse in what he listens to and he soaks it all up so if we need a real rockin' 80's vibe guitar at a show he'll play that. If we need a real country pickin' kind of thing, he'll do that. And he plays a lot of slide and different kinds of guitars â sounds and tones â he's very adaptable that way.â Bleu Edmondson

"I am very impressed with your playing and potential" -Jeff Purchon, legendary musician and founder of Gig-fx.
