Quinn DeVeaux spent his early childhood living with his grandmother, a former jazz singer, twenty-five miles outside of Chicago in Gary, Indiana. The birthplace of the Jackson 5 had long since slipped into post-industrial economic decline and the ambitious DeVeaux, while still a teenager, headed west with just a guitar and a golden voice. Eventually he found his way to San Francisco, CA where he was a founding member of the Blue Roots, a short-lived but near mythic group that operated out of the Mission District at the turn of the millennium. Alongside DeVeaux, the group included Lech Wierzynski and Nansamba Ssensalo, the pair who would go on to form the California Honeydrops, and bassist Nate Brenner of the Tune-Yards. Quinn would release a string of well regarded albums in the ensuing years, garnering accolades from the Bay Area music press and gathering fans on the dance floors at his high energy and “joyous” live shows. Rock critic Ian S. Port praised DeVeaux for “distill[ing] decades of American blues, country, soul, and gospel into a funky sound that feels as authentic as it does refreshing.”
