Devin Grant


Devin Grant can trace his love of music back to listening to his parents’ Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel albums as a child. At 12, he won tickets to see Joan Jett and The Blackhearts from a local radio station, a show that served as the spark to ignite his love of live music. He likes to keep an open mind when it comes to music, except where Celine Dion is concerned. As a freelance entertainment writer, Grant has contributed to local and national publications like the The Post & Courier and No Depression magazine, and has interviewed such musical luminaries as Loretta Lynn, The Rev. Al Green, and Mike Watt.
