*It’s been seven years since International R&B/Soul Recording Artist Devon Howard officially released music.
He’s back with his new CD entitled ‘Return To Love.’ Independently released through 313 Music Group, this radio ready, smooth suite of love songs pays homage to the era of classic R&B music where such songs of love were common. The first official single ‘Could This Be Love,’ is a surefire hit with its’ smooth melody and catchy groove.
Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Devon got his start in the music industry writing and performing with local R&B group Me 2 U, who recorded their debut CD on the RCA label. He then went on to perform with the group Diversiti and eventually ventured out as a soloist, releasing music in the US, Europe and Japan. Soon thereafter, he won the Heineken/ASCAP Initiative for songwriting.
Famed video/movie director Chris Robinson shot the video for Devon’s breakout hit single ‘Other Side of the Bed,’ which has played on VH1 Soul, BET and other video outlets around the world. The single played in over 16 markets in the US and gave way to opportunities for Devon to perform around the country, sharing the stage with artists like Dionne Warwick, Ginuwine, Joe and Eric Benet.
With all of his accomplishments, Devon finds time to give back. He has been an advocate for foster children in Baltimore for well over ten years. He recently produced compilation CD featuring local recording artists to help raise money to open a day shelter for homeless youth and young adults. He has performed for and given donations to various charitable organizations including the Red Cross and America’s Harvest.
‘Return To Love’ is really just Devon returning to the music he loved growing up. He loves creating music that inspires relationships, heal broken hearts or could just simply play in the background as the soundtrack to your life. This CD is a classic from start to finish.
It’s available now on most digital outlets including Amazon, iTunes and CDBaby.com.
