Devin Reilly

Devin Reilly is a guitarist, composer, and producer based in Los Angeles, CA. His background in jazz and contemporary music has yielded original work in a wide range of styles and genres. With a compositional style drawing from acoustic and electronic media, Reilly’s pieces are characterized by their methodical, intricate structures, and rich, vivid orchestration.

Reilly has worked extensively with The Jim Knapp Orchestra, as well as with San Francisco’s Friction Quartet, and members of the Seattle Symphony, the Corigliano Quartet, and the Saint Helens String Quartet.

In April 2019, Reilly was one of three composers commissioned to write new works for the New York Youth Symphony Jazz Band. The forthcoming piece, “In the Shadow of Tall Giants,” will premiere on March 9th, 2020 at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

His debut EP, “Talking in Circles,” was released on July 19, 2019.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
