The decade began with grassroots hopes and grew to local fame for expressive folk singer Jennie DeVoe. "It's really cool to look back and see that I actually have a music career that's sustained itself," she says. Along the way, she's placed songs on TV show ''Dawson's Creek," signed a distribution deal with Sony RED and made two albums in England with high-profile producer John Parish. Now: DeVoe plans to tour next summer to promote current album "Strange Sunshine."
