About This

Originally from Ottawa, Ontario, Claire Devlin is now a Montreal-based saxophonist and composer. In 2012, she was the recipient of the Rising Young Star award at the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival, as well as receiving a scholarship to attend McGill University. She attended the Banff Jazz & Creative Music Workshop in 2017 where she met and studied with Vijay Iyer, Linda Oh, Tyshawn Sorey, Jen Shyu, Gretchen Parlato, Gary Burtz, and many more.

Formed in 2016, the Claire Devlin Quartet unites four unique musical voices from the Montreal jazz scene. Lyrical melodies are paired with driving rhythms, and the traditional roles of each instrument are often left behind. The quartet’s repertoire of original music strikes a balance of intricate through-composition and completely open-ended improvisation. In July 2020, the Claire Devlin Quartet released their debut album, “Anyone”, on Florafone Records.
