Coming to West Sussex this week, former X Factor contestant Janet Devlin will be performing at Worthing Pier as part of her My Opium Tour. Devlin recently released her latest EP Little Lights through crowdfunding website PledgeMusic, the same platform that she released her debut album Hide & Seek in 2013. Last month Devlin unveiled her latest track Outernet Song, which reached number 7 in the UK charts.
First 'discovered' on X Factor, Devlin's Northern Irish charm has been spread to the masses for over 5 years now - and she's only just turned 22 this month! With a history of songwriting going back to when she was 5, Janet has always been creative but her introversion caused her to originally make music in secret even in her own house, writing songs in the shed away from earshot. Despite being raised on the music of Foo Fighters and RHCP, Devlin's music has always leant towards the pop side of things, with her first album of ballads and pop songs showcasing her stunning vocal control and touching songwriting style. Devlin has a dedicated widespread online following - forget Beliebers and meet the Devlinators!
Devlin has collaborated with a great selection of artists, including Newton Faulker and Jack Savoretti. Her YouTube channel has over 300,000 followers and is filled with vlogs, interviews, music videos and poems (she is a lady of many talents). Her latest video release (below), 'Outernet Song', is a parody of the social media society that we live in today and how people are so consumed with how they appear online - very similar to the theme of the first episode of Season 3 of Black Mirror. Check out Janet Devlin at Worthing Pier on Thursday 1st December. BUY TICKETS HERE. You can also get her Little Lights EP on PledgeMusic.
