Pop-Soul music is currently all the rage, and L.A.-based David And Devine are riding that wave of music being popularized by high-profile artists including Adele, Cee-Lo Green, Janelle Monae, and Bruno Mars, to name a few. In a world where the old record business is crumbling and hanging on by a thread, the soulful duo consisting of Candace Devine (vocals) and Dave Yaden (piano-vocals) are the new school - having enjoyed radio airplay for their song "Leave The Light On" while being signed to top Hollywood talent agency ICM and working with a well-known L.A. music manager - all without the benefit of a major label deal.
Dubbed "The new Bonnie and Clyde of Soul" by one scribe, David And Devine's body of work includes well-received sci-fi/thriller-themed video "'Til The Sun Comes Up" featuring actress Mariana Klaveno of HBO's hit series, True Blood. Another standout track from D&D is the uber-poppy "Get Up Everybody And Dance." Blues-Pop is another genre synonymous with David And Devine, similar to what one might expect to hear if, say, Elton John and Aretha Franklin formed a band.
It's easy to see where the great songwriting emanates from: Both Yaden and Devine compose music for TV and film scores, with "NCIS/LA;" MTV's "Real World;" and AMC hit "Breaking Bad" among their recent scores. Additionally, each have written, recorded, and performed with many high-profile acts including One Republic, Christina Aguilera, Lady Antebellum and "The Voice" finalist, Tony Lucca.
