There’s no denying it. You can’t help but gravitate to Deva St. John’s single ‘Reckless’, like moths to a flame. Exultant, melodic, attractive – the single is a intense rock that cleanses you from inside out, with pop edges and dynamic vocals.
Said Deve: “I grew up as a working actor. As much as I loved it (and still do) I felt like I couldn’t really explore who I was or who I could become. Unwavering commitment, regardless of how damaging it might be, seemed like the only key to success. When I finally got the courage to also pursue music, it felt like a very reckless choice. I committed way less energy to acting and was getting a lot of angst out in the songwriting. I was worried it would affect my employability.”
Deva’s story of self reliance, moments of interpolation, but an ultimate push for accepting sacrifice and the final rewards, is a story of all of us.
A soul, existing in this ocean of humanity, we try our best to live and also, distinguish.
Constant struggle that invites us like, ‘moth to a flame’.
Refreshing and nostalgic, Deva’s music frees herself and her awareness. We should follow.
