Meet Devaroux

Today we’d like to introduce you to Devaroux.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Devaroux. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started singing when I was three years old and my family would write little jingles for me to learn how to spell my name and by the time I got to 5th grade I was writing cute songs and showing them to friends. During my sophomore year of high school, I joined a class for audio engineering and the instructor for that class Antonio Fresquez taught me how to do audio engineering and how to produce beats. After I learned that I was in the studio multiple times a day working on recording my music. That class became like my second home. I would spend hours mixing my music to get it out onto SoundCloud and YouTube.

Fast forward a few years and I had graduated high school and moved out to the OC where I was introduced to The Coollab Project in Santa Ana and performed. Ever since then so many more opportunities have opened up to me. I have been asked to perform at many shows, been invited to be on podcasts, radio shows and have been able to collaborate with so many more talented local artists. it’s crazy to think that I’m doing exactly what I was telling everyone I would be doing when I was five years old. I’m extremely grateful to be making and performing my music and even more grateful that I have people who support and love what I make.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
My journey in making music has had a lot of ups and downs just like any artist has. It’s very difficult sometimes. my parents weren’t very supportive of my music and would ignore that I made music entirely for the first few years. my depression has made it really hard for me as well to stay in the scene a lot. Another struggle I’ve faced while making music is balancing my music life with college life, work-life and my personal life, but I think my biggest struggle thus far would be finding myself a solid team to work with who will stick with me through the hardest times and who will want to help me grow and support me just as much as I help and support them.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I mostly write songs and sing as well as perform at shows and other events, however, I also know how to produce, DJ, do audio engineering and live sound. I think what makes me the proudest is just seeing the growth I’ve had since I first started making music. It is very humbling to see how far I have gotten only being out here for two years especially coming from the IE where there really isn’t a music scene.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I believe luck has brought me into contact with a lot of people who have taught me many valuable lessons. All of the hard work and sleepless nights I have put into this along with luck have gotten me very far and I am very blessed with such supportive cousins who constantly help me.
