DeVotchKa’s music is emblematic of the diverse cultural fusion this country was built upon. – Westword
“The most intoxicating listening experience imaginable, they take you to an entirely different place, where beauty is personified, a place with expansive skies and wide-open desert terrain, where the setting sun hangs in a state of perpetual arrest, painting everything in its path in vibrant hues of red and orange.” – Westword
TGIF SERIES CONCERT
“For more than a decade DeVotchKa has been melting its sweeping influences into an authentic and totally original blend of rock ‘n roll. DeVotchKa’s first big break happened when KCRW introduced LA listeners to DeVotchKa on Morning Becomes Eclectic. The directors of “Little Miss Sunshine” happened to be listening this fateful day, loved what they heard, and hired the band to write the score for their film. A critical and box office smash, the film was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar and, for DeVotchKa’s soundtrack, a Grammy. The little band from Denver was suddenly known all across the nation, playing large venues and major music festivals, including Coachella, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Glastonbury. The love spread to Europe, Asia, and South America which are yearly destinations for the band.
Since Little Miss Sunshine front man Nick Urata has composed the scores for countless films including Crazy Stupid Love (Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore), Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (Tina Fey, Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman), and Paddington (Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Ben Whinshaw). Most recently, Urata composed the original music score for Netflix Original, A Series of Unfortunate Events, based on the children’s novel series by Lemony Snicket.
