JENNIFER WESTWOOD

Jennifer Westwood and the Handsome Devils sound like they made a serendipitous wrong turn on their way to the juke joint and wound up in a countrypolitan cathedral instead. It's beautiful and ever so haunting. Westwood's voice is sexy and strong as it applies the seduction over the band's groove and thoughtful reserve.
 

At the heart of the band is Jennifer Westwood and her husband, guitarist Dylan Dunbar, who share an affection for gospel, Texas blues, Stax, and Muscle Shoals artists. Westwood cut her teeth on gospel in Detroit before hitting the gritty local bars that set her career in motion. Along the way, she has performed backup for acts including Motown’s Carl Carlton, and she added several Detroit Music Awards to her credit, including one for work with Sponge front man Vin Dombroski on a traditional country recording.
