Gale Forces, the nom de plume of Jade Devitt, takes the essential core of early nineties hard rock and revives it with flashes of melodic flair. Devitt keeps things simple, though he also adds a crafty playfulness with big, crunch melodies that suggest there's a certain whimsy to his delivery. He's not really emulating the mannered miserablism of that era's period, a formula that worked for Dave Grohl and could very well work for him as he expands his songwriting ambitions, too.
Devitt will be performing songs off of his self-titled EP with his full band at Molly Malone's on November 12.
