Jeremy Spillman shares a tale of death, music, and revenge

November 7, 2019

In this episode, Nashville songwriter Jeremy Spillman tackles a new creative challenge: his first novel. In “The DeVine Devils,” Spillman spins a tale of two brothers, Audie and Shane DeVine. After the boys barely escape a massacre by the U.S. Army in which their father is killed, they swear vengeance and spend the next decade honing their skills in music and fighting.

In addition to the book, Spillman also worked with Dean Dillon on an EP which brings the story to life through some amazing music.

Following this, I've got two songs for you from the DeVine Devils EP—“Something Bad This Way Comes” and “Hard Times Come Again No More.”

Follwing that, I've got a great song from the Brooklyn-based Typhoid Rosie, “Sailing On.” They have a show coming up in Boston on Saturday, Nov. 16 at the Jungle in Somerville with Fuzzy Bumble, Tysk Tysk Tysk, and Wild Allegations, 7pm, $6.
