Behind three records (SuperMelodrama, 2000, Una Volta 2003, How it ends 2004), DeVotchka began its touring life as a house band for a North American touring Burlesque troupe. Since then, DeVotchka has traversed the continent with a wide range of like-minded musical peers including Belle & Sebastian, M.Ward, Calexico, 16 Horsepower, Los Lobos, Jim White, and the Dresden Dolls.
The release of How it ends introduced the country to what a burgeoning national audience had been following for four years. A staggeringly good record from far out of left field, How it ends met with nearly universal acclaim. The exposure turned the band into a growing underground phenomenon. DeVotchka continually sell out shows nationwide as they bring their transcendent and beautiful live show to the road.
