Skyline Sessions: Deva Mahal

Watch the powerhouse vocalist and songwriter perform in the studio.

Deva Mahal is a genre-defying artist rooted in soul/R&B, with branches extending into indie/alternative rock, pop and gospel. The daughter of legendary musician Taj Mahal, you could say she was born with blues in her blood, though her artistic path has been multifaceted and original. Mahal seems more interested in communicating truthful and vulnerable emotion over matters of style and legacy–and with her powerful vocal instrument, she’s a knockout communicator. She visited Skyline Sessions to record “Snakes,” from her acclaimed 2018 album Run Deep, and her latest single (which sounds like a lost Prince ballad) “Your Only One.”
