Devendra Banhart Biography - Nomadic Busker to Alt-Folk Star
This spiritual singer's unusual moniker is in thrall to a Hindu god, while his middle name - Obi - is a tribute to the Star Wars films which were popular around his time of birth in 1981. After moving to Los Angeles as a teenager, he eventually enrolled at the San Francisco Art Institute while performing wherever he could be heard, including weddings and street corner busking spots. After dropping out, this perpetual nomad began to pursue a full-time music career in Paris.
Scoring a support slot for alternative icons Sonic Youth, he was spotted by the Young God label and put out his Oh Me Oh My album in 2002. After a couple more minor releases for the indie imprint, he signed a major deal with XL Recordings, fleshing out his sound on his 2005 debut for the label Cripple Crow. Hitting the upper echelons of the US Billboard Heatseekers chart, he was soon a cult concern in the UK, where his shows were packed out with curious spectators. Meanwhile, his status went up a notch during the same year when he collaborated with Antony and the Johnsons on their Mercury-winning LP I Am A Bird Now.
Continuing to build his reputation with subsequent LP releases, including 2009's What Will We Be and 2013's Mala, he's now established as one of the most unique artists on the circuit.
