The Devil In California
-from West Oakland, CA
-Brand new music with our brand new line-up coming in 2022!
The Devil In California: Classic but heavy-as-hell rock, you know you’re in for something big and heavy when you first lay eyes on these guys, and that’s just what you get. They bring their own brand of heavy rock, with low-slung guitars, attitude, impeccable musicianship, and soaring 3 and 4 part harmonies that crush with historic rock power and finesse.
Hailing from the broad, cracked streets of West Oakland California, The Devil In California have set out to create new rock music, and bring it to the world. They do that in-between thing. It’s heavy, but not metal. It’s sing-alongy, but not sappy.
In the beginning, Jamie and his musical partner in crime, Matt Stewart laid the groundwork for this heavy, low, southern-influenced rock concept. The “audition”, and immediately subsequent induction of seasoned rock vocalist Tony Malson made them a band, but they still wanted more from this sound. In search of the perfect “big rock wall of guitars”, TDIC hunted for a second gunslinger. While recording their first demo, they found him in Snake Green (Skinlab, Re-ignition).
The band exploded into existence seemingly all at once! In a couple short years they found themselves on stage at amazing Bay Area venues such as Slims, DNA Lounge, Brick and Mortar, The New Parish, and The Fillmore! They were sharing stages with nationals including Three Days Grace, Black Star Riders, Skid Row, Crobot, Truckfighters, Charm City Devils, Prong, The Supersuckers, Motor Sister, Tracii Guns, and John Corabi (of Motley Crue fame). Their debut album release show at San Francisco’s DNA Lounge was SOLD OUT!!!
The Devil In California’s “Longer Ride Down” came out in 2015 on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, Spotify, HearNOW, LASTFM, and most other online outlets worldwide. The album debuted at #7 on CMJ’s Hard Rock chart. They have already released two singles and videos – “Black Hand” and “Empty Rooms”. Their third single and brand new video coming soon!
After some honing of the sound, some touring, and some amazing fill-ins from some great drummers and great friends, TDIC finally really knew what they really needed in a drummer, and in a band mate. They announced their permanent drummer, Randy Rice in 2017!
And now we enter 2022! The last couple of years has been quite the roller coaster with line-up changes and up-hill battles both personal and global. We wish the absolute best for Jamie and Snake as they move on to other musical ventures. They will always be our Devil brothers. We proudly welcome our new Devil brothers Stephen Lynch and Chuck Howell to The Devil fold and family. Our new songs with this new exciting line-up are sounding huge! We very much look forward to getting this new music out to you as soon as possible. New album is in the works!” Change is inevitable and we will March on!
Keep those Devil horns up and we will see you soon.

-It’s all about the songs. For this band, the motivation has always been to write music that is memorable, inspiring, and possesses the perfect blend of the various styles of rock music that they grew up on — keeping original rock music alive today. All four members have unique backgrounds and experiences that range from doing session work in L.A. for major song writers and industry professionals, to being in a Latin -pop band on Sony EMI. You will hear many sides revealed in their music – they aren't cornered into one style. Corvus lore takes you on a heavy musical ride, delivering songs that makes you set the needle back and want to listen again, and again.-
