Devin Shaffer is a musician and multidisciplinary artist based in Chicago, Illinois. Interlacing otherworldly folk with ambient drone, field recording, and found and archival audio, Devin’s sound is best described as auditory collage. On her debut LP “In My Dreams I’m There” - released in June of this year on American Dreams Records - Shaffer wields tender falsetto vocals, finger picked guitar, synthesizers, and field recordings to tell a surreal story of yearning for impossible utopia. In both her recordings and live performances, Devin brings listeners on a traversal through different sonic environments, with poppier moments emerging from seas of ambient drift.
