Newcomer Devin Kennedy and beloved singer/songwriter Maria del Pilar.

Music Friday Live! Podcasts Slider

Growing up in a musical family, Devin Kennedy knew there was only one path for him in life. As a kid, he taught himself to play drums, bass, guitar, and piano and wrote songs, but he began writing and releasing music seriously when he was accepted to Berklee College of Music. Devin released critically praised Love Language EP to much acclaim and an indie album. He has also toured across North America with former Big Time Rush member James Maslow, appearing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival and the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball.

With chart-topping singles, prime TV placements, and international festival appearances, María del Pilar continues to carry the torch in the U.S. Latino bilingual movement. Equal parts pop-lover and punk-rocker, María del Pilar mixes her DIY riot grrrl roots and bilingual lyrics to create melodic, sweet, and pop anthems. As the lead singer of Los Abandoned, she planted the seeds for what blossomed into the current new wave of U.S. Latin Alternative sounds.  An immigrant Latina, María del Pilar has been collaborating live on the road with Chicano Batman, Las Cafeteras and Francisca Valenzuela. This past summer, María del Pilar also shared the stage with former labelmates Tegan & Sara, and Tune-Yards invited her to sing backup vocals for their TV performance on Conan.
