A cross-pollination of numerous influences, including cabaret, spaghetti Westerns, norteño, punk, and the immigrant dance music of Eastern Europe, Colorado-based quartet DeVotchKa, formed in Denver by multi-instrumentalists Nick Urata (vocals, guitar, trumpet),
Tom Hagerman (violin, accordion), Jeanie Schroder (sousaphone, bass) and percussionist Shawn King, emerged as unlikely indie heroes in the mid-2000s infusing modern indie music with a global flavor.
They found widespread success in 2006 with their Grammy-nominated soundtrack to the hit indie film
Little Miss Sunshine. Signing with revered indie, Anti-, the band delivered A Mad and Faithful Telling
in early 2008, reaching the number nine slot on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. A lengthy world tour followed, including stops at major festivals like Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Bumbershoot. After doing more soundtrack work, this time for the 2009 comedy I Love You Phillip Morris
, the group returned to the studio for 2011’s moody and triumphant 100 Lovers
. Embarking on another world tour, they collaborated with the Colorado Symphony
on the 2012 concert album Live with the Colorado Symphony
. Over the next several years, Urata
became increasingly involved in his own film composition career, scoring movies like Crazy Stupid Love
, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Paddington
, and the Netflix series A Series of Unfortunate Events
. Meanwhile, the band regrouped for a lengthy recording session, eventually returning in 2018 with their sixth album, This Night Falls Forever
, this time via Concord Records.
