devon demos - audition a local band
Adam Westcott

Devon guitarist Adam Westcott has a style all of his own.

Adam is from Teignmouth - not the sort of place you would usually associate with flamenco.

So where did it all start Adam?
I started playing flamenco guitar about a year ago, and have been performing for the last seven months.

And how would you describe your music to the uninitiated?
If I had to sum it up in just a few words then I'd say that it is beautiful, new and Intelligent. It's a new concept of flamenco and vocals - and I just need a chance to play.

Although Devon is very peaceful - and I like that - it is frustrating because there is nowhere decent to play.

What do you think of the current music scene?
I think that it needs sorting out. There are some great British acts - like Coldplay and The Darkness but lots of rubbish too - like "Busted".

Adam Westcott
Adam claims his music is "beautiful new and intelligent"

What track have you chosen for Devon demos?
The track is called La Mystère and it's about a past relationship and how the hurt is reversed.

And how about your influences?
If you looked in my CD collection you'd find Jeff Buckley, Muse, At the Drive In and Idlewilde.

I would have loved to have met Kurt Cobain - to talk about music - and Nina Simone to ask her about her inspirations.
