MEET THE MOST WELL BEHAVED BAND OF THE YEAR: DEVIN MOSES AND THE SAVED

Well behaved you say? Well, one could define that as one who has never been arrested, and Devin Moses can claim that fact. They’re too busy performing to get in any trouble. Their music has echoed the streets of Pittsburgh at various festivals around the area along with most of the local venues such as Mr. Smalls. In June they dropped their self-titled EP, which is full of heartfelt and energetic Americana and makes you feel all sorts of good.

We are SO excited to introduce Devin Moses and the Saved to the MIC MVMT! This folk, rock/americana band consists of Nino Albanese on lead guitar, Scott Mervick on drums, Chris Trepagnier on bass, Derek January on rhythm guitar, Evan Issac on keys, and Julie Shepard on violin and backup vocals. Let’s take a look behind the scenes...

Give us your introduction and origin story, please!

Devin Moses released his first album (The Lawrenceville Sessions) in the summer of 2014 in Pittsburgh, PA. After that, Devin began to put together the band now known as The Saved. It includes Nino Albanese on lead guitar, Scott Mervick on drums, Chris Trepagnier on Bass, Derek January on Rhythm Guitar and Julie Shepard on Violin and backup vocals. All of which were prior experienced musicians from other previous musical projects in the Pittsburgh, PA area. Devin Moses & The Saved released their first LP, Hit To Hurt, in the Summer of 2015, which was more stylized from the genre of folk rock with a heavy country influence. After completing the album, the band performed at bars, festivals, clubs and theaters such as Mr. Smalls Theater, Spirit, R.A.N.T. Festival, and the main stage at Deutschtown Music Festival, as well as opened for Doug Paisley (CAN), Joan Shelley, The Commonheart and Wreck Loose.

What do you love most about your indie music/creative career?

I enjoy making the art, and the art community that is Pittsburgh.

What are some of your struggles as an indie musician/creative, and how do you hope the IMBM can help you?

I am interested in writing better songs and properly producing these songs. Outside of that, I am interested in allowing my current project to receive more exposure, and since I have just put out an album that I believe does show off the projects current potential, this is what I am primarily interested in right now.

Any advice for up-and-comers who want to do what you do?

Do exactly what you want, set short term goals, be proactive and pragmatic, and, if you expect anything from music, you expect too much.

What is your indie music/creative careers Definition of Success, in spirit of the IMBM?

I want to continue to make better music than I did on previous projects.

Anything else you want to share? Crazy stories, fun facts, or favorite places in Pittsburgh?

I love Pittsburgh because I have never been arrested here. Also I’m a Northsider.
