In early 2011, Devin found himself outside the Long Island home he grew up in, watching it engulfed by flames. With a desire to pursue his dream in music, left with no possessions and no home, Devin migrated to Brooklyn looking to pave the way for his performing career.
Possibly hitting every open mic New York City had to offer, Devin soon found himself with his first club residency at the late “Somethin' Jazz Club.” There he created and developed his band “The Secret Service.”
Devin worked the New York City club scene, developing monthly residencies and selling out multiple shows at The Metropolitan Room, Rockwood Music Hall, The Bitter End, Sullivan Hall, McKittrick Hotel & Ella Lounge. While at the Metropolitan Room, it was there he garnered press from Broadway World, New York Times & Huffington Post for his show “Mixology.” In 2014, Devin received “Hot House Jazz” magazine's Best Male Vocalist award.
While building his robust New York following, Devin started developing and conceptualizing his self-produced full length record, “Shaken Not Stirred,” A conceptually structured piece, Devin began experimenting with elements of movie scoring infusing it with his piano based songwriting.
“I wanted to bring back the art of the full album, while each song has its own singular appeal, cohesively they tell a story. I take a very visual approach to writing, and sonically I imagined a piece that would take the listener through an epic tale of lust, love and the pursuit of destiny.” - Devin Bing
In June 2016 Devin released (Part I) of “Shaken Not Stirred,” which he received a Global Music Award. “Shaken Not Stirred : Deluxe” is set to be released January 20th, 2017.
He's also the subject of the upcoming documentary “Climbing New York,” which depicts the artist’s journey working up the NYC club ladder to New York’s most acclaimed jazz venue Dizzy’s Club-Coca Cola in Lincoln Center.
Devin can be associated with R&B songwriting legend Lloyd Price, opening a series of shows for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee.
Devin's music and natural charisma speaks for itself. Energy and exuberance, complimented by a classic sophistication that would appeal to even the most discerning palette, he combines the swagger of a bygone era with his own charismatic brand of urban jazz. Every evening with him promises a scintillating journey of smooth vocals, elegant beats and a seductive air of elegance that leaves his audience spellbound.
