Al Devon Short Info

Former, and founder member of north-east band The Jar Family, Al Devon is a singer-songwriter with a vast array of self-penned material which oozes the truth. A completely ‘guards down’ artist who writes and performs with zero inhibitions. A rare talent who’s songs send the listener on a journey with a poetic and honest assessment of love, turmoil, political scepticism, humour and irony, all delivered with a distinctive vocal that can’t be mistaken.

Far from one dimensional,Al writes both heartfelt ballads and upbeat catchy indie-folk songs. In the 5 years spent with The Jar Family, Al wrote a total of six of the songs on the bands two released albums – Poolie Strut, Skipping Beats, Getting Better, Waiting There, Never Know Me and Spreading Out The Pain.
