Deva- powerful battle scarred declarations on "Dear Ocean"

Dear Ocean by Deva (UK) is a powerful life affirming, heart breaking ode to survival (by any means necessary) and fuck you to the infliction that was foisted upon her. It is a big brash kind of Americana blues tinged porch rocker with a passionate vocal performance. Deva certainly has the pipes to belt out any song but it is the broken glass cut rawness tinged with scars and blood in her voice that is compelling. 

Deva was born in London to American parents and raised in Berkshire. Her sound is heavily influenced by both British and American culture and music. About the emotional rocker she shares: 

"Dear Ocean is a song about my relationship with living with Cystic Fibrosis. I've drawn a lot of inspiration from blues and vocal powerhouses. With this song, I want to reach out to anyone with or without chronic illnesses, who want to rock out."
