DAMRITE

 


Devon “Dam Rite”  Ashley is an extremely talented drummer and producer.  His reputation as a session and live drummer carries weight around the world.  He is also a great composer of organic and electronic scores.  He recently completed work on all the production for Kate Lamont’s self titled album.

Devon currently resides in his hometown of Indianapolis aka Naptrapolis.  He grew up in Haughville from a very musical family.  His sisters are great singers, who perform with him in SoulLoveUniverse and various other projects Devon has his hand in.  He also plays  with his little brother Jay Jones.  Jay is a great keyboard player, writer, producer and R&B singer.  Devon is helping produce his new album that will be coming out in 2015, so we’ll definitely keep you all posted on those developments.

Devon is also like a big brother and mentor to me (Spread) and many other artists that came up in the artistic desert that is the city of Indianapolis.  It’s good to see the the music scene becoming more vibrant each and every year, but none of it could’ve happened without trailblazers like Dam Rite aka Devon Ashley.
