Devon Sproule's singing is honest and moving, playful and powerful. Her songs draw on folk, pop, and country influences, all in the service of her distinctive, personal, highly melodic sound. Growing up in the rural Virginia egalitarian, intentional community Twin Oaks, Devon started writing songs at a young age. These days she's having particular success in the United Kingdom. David Garland welcomes Devon Sproule to the WNYC Studio to perform and talk about her music.

Wonderful and wow! I know she'll get tired of the hot Austin weather, but she is a breath of cool, fresh air while she is with us! Thanks for a great show!

Ahhhhhhhh. This was so beautiful. Reminded me of the lovesongs of Carly Simon, Cat Stevens and Dave Matthews. Absolutely loved it. Thank you for sharing this jewel with us. Also reminded me of Shawn Colvin too. Godspeed Ms. Sproule.
