Although the blues is in her blood, Deva Mahal can draw on a deeper reservoir of styles: soul, gospel and indie rock, to name a few. She is the daughter of blues icon Taj Mahal, and the African and folk influences her father sometimes used can occasionally be heard in Mahal´s compositions. She has forged her own sound from this broad palette and has shared the stage with the likes of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Etta James, The Roots and Maceo Parker. Not only does Mahal sing with a voice that came to maturity on the New York music scene, she also knows how to write songs. From lingering blues ballads to modern indie R&B – she can do it all. Mahal’s debut is titled Run Deep. The album’s name refers not just to the blues in her veins but also to the emotional depth of her songs.
