David Devine: Singer-Songwriter

Songwriting Projections 2019

 And in other news I am getting my songs evaluated and I even spoke today to a professional songwriter who has penned songs for Kenny Chesney, Kid Rock, and many others  and he evaluated my songs especially "Cloud Number Nine" where he said the lyrics were great! He felt it would work well in movies and television  And he liked “Rollin’ On The Ocean” and told me he really liked it and told me “to get it out there” and how it could work in the bluegrass genre! So here they are "Rollin' On The Ocean" and "Cloud Number Nine" and another tune "Cup of Coffee by The Window" right here on the jukebox!  https://daviddevine.bandcamp.com


My goal is to publish my songs, and solicit them to other artists, record companies, as well as license agencies for movies, and other programing  opportunities. 


I have also registered my (songs, poems, and plays) with The Writers Guild of America West in finding work with talent agencies for movies, television, and commercial possibilities.

Cloud Number Nine

Here's the video that I made of "Cloud Number Nine" sounds great live too! 

A Hundred and Fifty Dollar Car

A song inspired by the intergrity and spirit of my timeless Toyota Corolla. Soon every problem that needed repaired became a rhyme, and every situation became a bridge to another verse  leading me to see how life is alive within everyone and everything!

Roger and Me

I was introduced to Roger Miller at  an early age and it forever changed the way I looked at the world.  He garnered Grammy’s for his hit single “King of The Road” as well as pen other great humorous and heartfelt numbers.

I met him at Harlan Howard’s Birthday Party at the BMI parking lot. He was a hoot! We shared stories about old jalopies and the ride they gave us! 

I think he might have liked this song!

I was in Nashville in Spring 1991 and I was able to meet some wonderful people. One of the most endearing was the onetime manager of the Grand Ole Opry Mr. Ott Devine. And although we were not related except for our love of country music he believed in me and felt I had what it took to make it. He took me to the backstage of the Grand Ole Opry where he said he wanted to introduce me to his friends where he still was revered and respected by so many of the staff and Stars! I still remember that night and how good it was to have spent our time together.  

 




Poetry Moments

The One and Only Red Gerard

image35

This poem is about the youngest winter Olympian to ever win a gold medal snowboarder Red Gerard and his journey from his miniature snowboarding park in his backyard to the top of the mountain at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic winter games! https://www.snowboard.com/news/red-gerard-inspires-poetry/

The Here and Now

image36

You may find the here and now

along the road below the clouds

underneath a frozen stream 

as clear as crystal rolling dream

that wanders like your busy mind

and puts you in this place in time

where your heart has ears

and your soul has eyes

at the foot of where your nature lies

with all the grace that time allows

that walks you down the here and now.

Dear Mr. Emery

image37

When I went to Nashville I had a chance to read my poem on TNN’s “Nashville Now” and the longtime host Ralph Emery. When I wrote on my blue card why I wanted to be on a popular show,  I wrote that I had a poem about a die-hard Nashville Now fan! And so when Mr.Emery called my name I went nationwide with my poem. And when he asked me I said my father and as he held the microphone my heart was beating outside of my chest as I started to read...


Dear Mr. Emery/My Dad just loves your show/Why I bet he’d fall out of his chair if you just said “Hello”/ He sits there every evening till it’s time to hit the hay and reminisces with you all the songs of yesterday/And when the show gets rollin he jumps up to his feet/And plays along with Hoot and Fred and he don’t miss a beat/ and when the song is over and you say “We’ll be back with more” that’s when he takes his hat off and he throws it on the floor./Well, I just thought I’d tell ya the way some fans can be/When they live in Pennsylvania with their heart in Tennessee...( And then Mr. Emery turned to the camera that night and said “Hello Dayton”! and the place lit up with applause! ) (My brother Chuck said when Mr. Emery said “Hello Dayton” He said Dad had a tear in his eye. I knew what it mean to him.)
