Devendra Banhart Tickets
Devendra Banhart TicketsDevendra Banhart is a Venezuelan-American singer, songwriter and visual artist who was born in May of 1981 in Houston, Texas. Although he was born in the US, he was raised by his mother in Venezuela. As a teenager, he moved to California, where he lived in the Castro district of San Francisco. In 1998, he began studying at the San Francisco Arts Institute but often went busking instead of going to classes. Devendra's first show was held in a church during a same-sex wedding where he performed a cover of Elvis Presley's single "Love Me Tender" in addition to the timeless hymn "How Great Thou Art." He ended up dropping out of school to perform music in Europe, where he opened for indie rock bands such as Sonic Youth.
Back to the USAIn the fall of 2000, Banhart returned to the US and went back to performing in San Francisco and Los Angeles. During one of these performances, a woman named Siobhan Duffy purchased a copy of Banhargt's demo album, The Charles C. Leary, and gave it to her husband, Michael Gira, the owner of Young God Records. From this introduction, the album Oh Me Oh My was born. Under the Young God Records label, Banhart released two more albums (Rejoicing in the Hands and Nino Rojo) and an EP (The Black Babies). In 2005, he changed labels when he signed with XL Recordings and released the album Crippled Crow. Banhart's albums are known to have spawned a movement known as "freak folk." He has been labeled not only as a freak folk artist but his music has also been called psychedelic folk, avant folk, hipster folk and alternative folk. His music is often associated with the "New Weird America" genre, a product of the union of psychedelic funk and folk. Banhart's variation of musical sounds is coupled with sensational lyrics that are often notably poetic.
