Dev’s music is a fun sexy, mix of pop, R&B, dance and hip-hop, all delivered with a distinctive, unique voice. Born in Manteca, CA to parents of Mexican and Portuguese decent Dev has always had a cultural awareness that has seeped into every part of her style including her music. Signed to Republic Records in 2010 Dev quickly became the next pop star with edge after Far East Movement used her song “Booty Bounce” in the international hit “Like A G6.” Dev went on to have a Top 10
record in the UK with the well received “Bass Down Low” and a Top 10 record in the US with “In The Dark.” Dev has been featured on numerous other songs including JLS’s “She Makes Me Wanna,” The New Boyz “Backseat” and more recently Martin Solveig’s “We Came To Smash” featured in the movie Pitch Perfect. Currently, Dev is working on the follow up to her debut album The Night The Sun Came Up. The first single from her forthcoming EP Bittersweet July is the Hitboy produced “Kiss It” featuring Sage The Gemini.
An island girl born and raised in Guam, Pia fell for music at the age of eight, performing in school productions and singing along to artists such as Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and Beyonce. Choirs and formal vocal training helped sharpen her skills and she built an online following by posting cover songs on YouTube (she continued the latter after moving to Los Angeles in 2010).
At a 2013 photo shoot for apparel brand Pink Dolphin, she met the company’s CEO, Neima Khaila, who later became her manager. He introduced her to Abou Thiam, known for his work with multi-platinum artists such as Chris Brown, Kanye West, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, Akon, Trinidad James, T-Pain, and many more. At the age of 16, Pia became an entrepreneur, partnering with Thiam to form the label Wolfpack Entertainment.
“I grew up in an environment that allowed me to develop artistically with help and guidance from many people along the way,” says Pia. “I want to show everyone that people from small places can achieve their dreams, no matter how big they are. I can only hope I’m making my family and my island proud.”
