guitarist Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group); Tony Garnier (Bob Dylan’s bass player
since 1989; Tom Waits; Paul Simon) and Sonic Youth drummer, Steve Shelley, not

Patton; Keith Richards; ZZ Top and many more!) Proving her standing among these
rock luminaries, Charmian Devi is your new rock hero.
Based in Canada, after her father emigrated from London to
Montreal, Charmian Devi has spent her life as a musician, from melodic garage
bands through to lead singer and songwriter for 90s punk band, Wretched Ethyl
who became one of Canada’s most talked-about bands, opening for the likes of
Seattle grunge legends, 7 Year Bitch and punk icons, Nomeansno. Their demise
after four fraught years sadly coincided with the tragic death of her husband –
it was from the burning embers of this dark and harrowing time that Charmian
Devi relocated to London for two years to rebuild her life. Still haunted by
her turbulent past, she returned to Canada and a new Charmian emerged, a
songwriter and musician who was truly able to crystallise her experiences and
express them through her music.
