Bay Area Beats: Howell Devine

The band Howell Devine -- Josh Howell, Pete Devine, and Joe Kyle Jr. --  is bringing the southern blues to the Bay. For this episode of Bay Area Beats, we caught up with the founding members to find out how the blues got into their souls.

PETE DEVINE: They were playing blues at the turn of the century, thought they weren't necessarily recording it until the early 20s. It's the foundation basically of American music.

You can hear Howell Devine play live Thursday, 4/16, at the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley.
