BMI Indie Spotlight: Devin Kennedy

Posted in News on July 13, 2023

Devin Kennedy is an in-demand singer/songwriter and producer from Los Angeles, CA. Raised in a musical household, Devin started playing drums, guitar, and bass all before the age of 10. At 17, he was accepted into Berklee College of Music, where he combined his passion for writing and producing in multiple genres to create a unique blend of R&B/Pop that has become his trademark. Since 2018, he has been releasing successful singles, including “No Worries” and “Something Bout That Feeling,” which featured a re-mastered sample of his late grandfather on the piano. Devin kicked off 2020 with “Happy Yet” and “No Parachute,” which received two million TikTok views within two weeks of release. His artist, production and writing projects have tens-of-millions of streams worldwide and allowed him to collaborate with Ben Platt, Ryan Tedder, David Hodges, Andy Grammer, R3HAB, Jake Miller, Alex Aiono, EBEN, and more. While in college, Devin saved up his royalties from those collaborations to self-fund the release of his debut EP, SunDayDreams, in the summer of 2021. Prior to this release, he joined Charlie Puth, Lauv, Lewis Capaldi, Alessia Cara, Julia Michaels and others as a part of Elvis Duran’s “Stay At Home Ball” to benefit Project C.U.R.E.
