Deva has always been involved and enveloped in music creation and community. She grew up in a house with frequent exposure to creative minds and musicians and as she entered high school she fell in love with strong women performers like Suzanne Vega, PJ Harvey and Tilt. She taught herself to play the guitar with Beatles books, and her voice is nothing short of strong and entrancing all rolled into one. Strumming her acoustic guitar, she writes heartfelt Americana/folk-rock songs inspired by her spiritual journey while keeping a scrappy, DIY attitude. Her path as a musician has presented her with experiences from working with producer Billy Smiley, sharing the stage with David Eugene Edwards of Wovenhand, Richie Furay of Buffalo Springfield, and fronting local Denver bands. She continues on her spiritual, musical path as the songwriter and front woman of her own Deva Yoder Band.
