Dev Blair

Blending genres and art forms like the blend of Southeastern US cultures that made them, Boston-area rapper Dev Blair aims to take up space with their rhymes-and challenge the culture while doing so. Nashville born, Atlanta raised, Orlando grown, and Boston educated with ancestors in Louisiana, Dev Blair is a queer/trans Creole witch and wordsmith, writing songs as spells and raps as prayers. Dev got into music through musical theatre, which led them to choir, acting, theatre school, and eventually led them to embrace multiple art forms, including poetry. Poetry led to rap, and now with the release of their debut album, Femmetasy, this trap beat tranny is ready to slide on the scene.

The Femmestasy Exhibition

Performances with Rap, Poetry and R&B
December 3-5, 2020

Dev Blair (They Series or She Series Pronouns) presents "The Femmetasy Exhibition," a mixed medium performance art show and live follow-up to "Femmetasy," her debut album which released in November 2019. Femmetasy (defined as femme + fantasy) is a rap, R & B, and poetry album that centers on exploring what femme survival looks like in the 21st century, through the lens of my experiences as a Black, broke, queer/trans non-binary femme. The Femmetasy Exhibition houses all of the album's poems and songs in a hybrid drag show/live musical performance, deepens Femmetasy’s context via movement-based storytelling, and will feature collaborations with other local non-binary artists of color (lineup TBA).
