What is your stage name?
My stage name is Devon Fouch

Is there a story behind your stage name?
Really my stage name was built off inspiration, for example Kendrick Lamar middle name is Lamar. Drake is Aubrey’s middle name. So I went with the more authentic approach and not hide behind a character.

Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration from anything great. Also impact. impact plays a huge role in things that inspire me personally.

What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
The role for music in the early years of my life was more like coping. It also allowed me to get my thoughts out because I never really was the social butterfly so writing was just the best way for me to communicate my reasoning. It just came more natural.

Are you from a musical or artistic family?
Yes I have a lot of talent in my family. I’m not the first for sure.

Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?

I would say Michael Jackson in my early years. Also Kanye West. Nas. There’s so many layers of that inspiration.

How did you learn to sing/write/to play?
Just practice. Studying people who were already good at it. I also just had a curiosity that kind of kept me digging deeper and deeper into the craft. But mainly practice and constantly learning.

What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
I believe my first concert was Fabolous. That was dope seeing someone I listened to lyrically do what he does best in person.

How could you describe your music?
I describe my music as timestamp E.Ps. One moment it would sound like one thing because that’s what I’m inspired to make in the moment. The other moment it could be a whole total one off from what I made the previous release so yeah, I would describe it as a timestamp. It’s my urge to always want to be different than staying in a box.

I describe my music as timestamp E.Ps.

Describe your creative process.
It’s not a set in stone process because again it allows me to think and create outside a certain routine but the most consistent thing I can say is a certain level of freestyle being implemented in my craft. It’s gets my creativity going in a way.

What is your main inspiration?
Main inspiration is impact. I would give it to inspiration and family for sure. I want to impact the culture and also take care of the people that I love.

What musician do you admire most and why?
I definitely admire Michael Jackson. He left such a great legacy. I remember when he passed away it didn’t feel real to me. I didn’t think he could die. Plus he had such a dope balance with social impact while keeping it entertaining. Very gifted.

Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?

Yes, when I first started I was more of a bars only lyricist type of person. Then I evolved more into hooks, notes. I have more of this zoomed out or full court kind of awareness rather than just the bars and metaphors alone.

Who do you see as your main competitor?
Myself for sure.

What are your interests outside of music?
Family and books. I love to learn.

If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?
The balance between stepping up to the plate digitally while keeping the integrity of the music intake. I want to maintain the quality of my outputs while making sure it’s received.

If you could change one thing in the music industry, what would it be?
I would say the monopoly that the Big 3 have on streaming platforms as far as editorial playlists. I believe they need a mandatory amount of independent unsigned artist like a percentage of these artist should be able to get on editorial playlist consistently. That’s just my opinion.

Why did you choose this as the title of this project?
Devotion On The Rocks is my collaborative project. It’s about love and it’s a tropical vacation on a project. It has a chill vibe but it’s love so yeah. It’s dope imagery.

Existential is a single off that project and it’s inspired by the concept which is I can’t exist without the woman of my life. It’s just raw and it’s truth.

What are your plans for the coming months?
My plan is to focus on the marketing rollout within a set budget so the project is received well in its respected market.

I’m currently in constant Collaboration with Cubanis. A phenomenal Dance Hall master within his craft. That’s just where I’m at currently. Shout out to That New JT, also phenomenal.

What message would you like to give to your fans?
I want them to know how much I appreciate them and I value their support. They keep me going. I’m hoping my music is causing some kind of impact on their lives. That’s really what I want to do for them, because other artists have done that for me so, yeah I love them.
