Devon Sproule is a Canadian/American musician living in rural Virginia, raised on eco-villages near Kingston, Ontario and Louisa, Virginia. The 34-year-old, in addition to being a musician, is a high school drop-out, a birder, doula, and a student of Deaf Culture and sign language. She has been married to producer Paul Curreri for 11 years. 'The Gold String' by Devon Sproule will be released on Tin Angel Records in spring 2017.
Devon Sproule’s “Gold String” is North American music with weirdo roots. Recorded in three different Canadian provinces — Yukon, Ontario, and Nova Scotia — the short, lush LP features backing from Toronto dream-poppers Bernice. The deep, sparse “Drawing Circles” is a song by Sproule’s Tin Angel labelmate Ed Askew. Two songs are co-written with Mike O’Neill (Inbreds) and mixed by Sandro Perri. Sproule’s husband Paul Curreri sings, plays, mixes, and produces.
