Ex Little London, Portsmouth based song writer, musician and studio engineer Dev has been producing music in various guises since he was a teen with a cult following which continues to grow with every release. Known for his interest in making his own unique sound, with songs often incorporating many different elements all while relishing the underground and whiskey-soaked regrets. Dev's never the sort to manage a comfortable life, he defined it himself as "a series of soaring highs followed by dark and empty pits of never-ending despair". This reflects in his series of Punishment Essay albums. After focusing on studio work following his bands appearance as the prestigious Sonisphere Festival in the UK with many of his heroes he's been persuaded to promote more of his music to a wider audience.
