Devon Howard wants her "Forever and Always"

(November 26, 2021) It never goes out of style to hear a song promising a love that will last until the end of time, because that’s what everyone hopes for. Singer, songwriter, and producer Devon Howard may have had that in mind on his new single, “Forever and Always.”

This record – which has a 90’s R&B flavor - showcases Devon’s crooning style, which is sometimes compared to Babyface and El DeBarge.  “Forever and Always” has been called a “throwback feel-good track with a modern sound.”  This is fitting for an artist whose body of work is described as “a suite of songs that feel reminiscent of old school, classic love songs yet still retain relevance in today’s market.”

Devon caught the music bug at an early age, being greatly influenced by his father, Melvin Leonard Brown, who was a songwriter for some groups in their hometown of Baltimore, MD.  Later, Devon joined R&B quintet Me-2-U and contributed his songwriting to the group’s debut album RCA Records in 1993. On that project, Devon worked with music industry heavyweights, Vincent Herbert (Aaliyah, Tamar Braxton) and Ron Fair (Mary J. Blige, Keyshia Cole).

In the years since the group disbanded, Devon released his own music nationally and internationally, having his first music video directed by the famed Chris Robinson (Alicia Keys, Monica, Jay-Z). He also won The Heineken Music Initiative/ASCAP Foundation award for songwriting and served as an opening act for the likes of SWV, Mario, Joe, and Dionne Warwick.

You can get a taste of Devon’s balladry below by checking out “Forever and Always,” which comes from his forthcoming album, Morning Son, due out March 8, 2022.
