For more than a decade, DeVotchKa has been melting its sweeping collection of influences into an authentic and totally original blend of rock 'n' roll. Like many bands, DeVotchKa spent much of their early years traveling the highways and byways searching for gigs and a musical direction. The early years found the band developing a dedicated underground following, breaking out with the song “How It Ends” and earning a Grammy nomination for their score for the Jonathem Demme film, Little Miss Sunshine. Fostering important musical collaborations with the unequivocal Calexico and the seminal gypsy punks Gogol Bordello while touring internationally with both invited a worldwide audience.
