50 People Who've Made Indy a More Interesting Place To Be

Indianapolis Star

The Influentials:



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." Often a featured performer when Indianapolis-based organizations schedule fundraisers, DeVoe says she's flattered when listeners respond to her lyrics. "Even if it's a dark song, there's a hopeful thing in it someplace," she says. "One line is all it takes."
