Devin Richards was raised in both Queens and North Carolina. This hybrid northerner/southerner began using his resonant deep voice at a young age as a singer, actor and as an announcer for local television. In his adult years he has performed all over the U.S. and in Canada and Europe, specifically London's West End, Paris and Germany where he lived for several years. After leaving Europe he immediately began his Broadway career in the Tony Award winning revival of "Carousel". This Broadway mainstay has appeared in principal roles in "The Life", "Smokey Joe's Cafe" and "Carousel", as the jazz singer in Victor/Victoria, as well as five other Broadway shows. Throughout his career Devin has had the pleasure of singing and performing with Gladys Knight, Harry Connick Jr., Marilyn Mae, Lou Rawls, Julie Andrews, Rosie O'Donnell, Gloria Gaynor, Rick Springfield and Tony Orlando to name a few. Devin recently appeared in the hit NBC show "30 Rock." He is currently appearing in his ninth Broadway show, the Broadway revival of "110 in the Shade" starring Audra McDonald at Studio 54.
Lampkin Music Group has produced/co-produced shows featuring talents such as Tony winner Hinton Battle; Drama desk winner Karen Mason; Jeff/MAC winner Alexandra Billings; Backstage/Billboard winner Martha Lorin; Chicago cabaret favorites Tom Michael and Beckie Menzie; Michael McAssey; Pudgy. His label, LMG/LMGKIDSOURCE MUSIC, has released CDs by performers such as Martha Lorin, Alexandra Billings, Tyler Stephenson, Michael McAssey, Bob Solone and Ester Hana. Several of these CDs have reached number one and the top ten on the NPR charts and the top ten on amazon.com. The current dance hit "ONLY ONE LIFE" from Tyler Stephenson, is top 40 after 7 months. Look for the recording debut of Devin Richards in 2008.
