Dead Soul Tribe
Devon Graves – vocals
– What made you choose Devon for this Ayreon project?
– How did you get in touch with Devon? Arjen: Via Inside Out. I sent him an email, and he was interested straight away. Especially when I told him I am an Ian Anderson fan as well!
– Describe the recording session in three words. Arjen: Professional, relaxed and fun.
– How would you describe Devon’s voice? Arjen: Very versatile. We recorded many different aspects of his voice; gentle, powerful, harmonies and dramatic. And they all sound equally fantastic.
– What was the most memorable moment? Arjen: His english pronounciation of the word ‘world’. For a brief moment I had John Lennon flashbacks here!
– What was something you absolutely didn’t expect? Arjen: I didn’t expect Devon to be such a funny person, he seems very serious and dark when you hear his music and read his interviews. We have been quoting funny movie scenes thoughout the recording sessions!
– What was something Devon did not expect? Arjen: Hmm…I guess what every singer will not expect…how tall I am!
– Devon has the unique ability to… Arjen: …please me.
– Decribe the endresult of the session.
