Prairie musician Rob Malowany comes to Golden as Devilsplender

Devilsplender and his enthrallingly eclectic mix of musical genres will be performing at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Friday Nov. 23.

A guitar shredding skater from the prairies, Rob Malowany (a.k.a. Devilsplender) rolled in Vancouver’s music scene with big plans and passion to make them happen.

Devilsplender and his enthrallingly eclectic mix of musical genres will be performing at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Friday Nov. 23.

Malowany, the bandleader, songwriter and producer, already has seven full-length albums to his credit—Hey! Ho-hum! LIVE! released in 2012 is his latest.

“Growing up, I wanted to be Pete Townshend of the Who, his showmanship is critical in my structuring music for performance,” said Malowany, originally from Edmonton.

“But Paul Westerberg of the Replacements is the comparison I get the most, and that’s a huge compliment. TIM was a landmark album.

The Devilsplender concert experience rings through at every gig. Already having shared the stage with such rocking notables as The Dudes, Black Mountain, and the legendary NoMeansNo, as well as roots and blues heavyweights like the Lowest of the Low and the Bughouse 5, Malowany’s show is as varied as his influences.

A jack-of-all-trades, Malowany keeps his foot in the music business as a soundman, promoter, and more, on top of the do-it-youself approach he takes with his own music, which he funds, manages and produces himself.

Moving forward, as Malowany continues to push Devilspender in broader, more challenging directions, there is anticipation of a new solo Devilspender electronic / noise album and a new full band, roots rock’n’roll Canadiana album set for release in 2013.
