Like many young children, Henry Devorick started taking piano lessons in kindergarten. As he grew through the years, so did his musical talents, which expanded to include learning how to play bass guitar and percussion.

Those musical talents were on full display at VALE Music Group’s annual showcase in February where Devorick was named VALE Artist of the Year. VALE Music Group is an independent LLC, created in 2013 by students of Lebanon Valley College. Devorick is a member of the Class of 2020.

The sophomore music and audio and music production double major became just the third artist to receive a contract with the College’s student-run record label .

“I was glad to be named VALE’s newest artist because I had worked hard on my playing and singing for many years,” said Devorick, a native of Lititz, and graduate of Warwick High School.

Henry Devorick, a Warwick High School graduate attending Lebanon Valley College, was recently named VALE Music Group’s Artist of the Year.

As the VALE artist, Devorick performed at LVC’s annual ValleyFest on April 20, as an opener for We The Kings.

An EP of his record, Nelson’s Umbrella, which features a mixture of RnB and electro-pop, will be released during VALE’s Spring Festival on Saturday, April 28 from 4 to 10 p.m. It will be held behind the Shroyer Health Center on the LVC campus, Annville.

Devorick is no stranger to performing, as he is a member of the Skiffs, a band that plays in the Lancaster area. They have played venues such as the Chameleon Club where they opened for Rusted Root.

At LVC, Devorick plays upright bass in the Symphony Orchestra and piano in the small jazz ensemble. One of his favorite college memories so far is the jazz ensemble’s tour to area high schools and middle schools in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Looking into his future after LVC, Devorick wants to find a job in the music field and may pursue a doctorate in music composition or theory.
