Student Spotlight: Devyn Byrd | Devyn, a sophomore performing arts major (audio technology) with a minor in music from Clover, SC, has found success inside and outside the classroom.

"Music has been a significant aspect of my life for as long as I can remember," said Byrd. Taking up an interest in music at a young age, Devyn and a few classmates joined forces during their junior year at Clover High School and created the band American Theory. Through the years, the band has gained many followers with 51,000 streams on Spotify and nearly 22,000 views on YouTube (as of April 2020). They won “Best Rock Music Video” at the 2019 Carolina Music Video Awards and have opened for several national acts including Saving Abel, Eve to Adam and Danny Worsnop of Asking Alexandria. This past September, “NASCAR Heat 4,” a racing video game, featured American Theory’s song, “The Lion and the Liar,” on the official soundtrack.

Working to make the most of all that 2020 has presented, American Theory is recording and producing new music with the help of Scott Wilson, the bass guitarist for Saving Abel and former bass guitarist for Tantric. We can't wait to see what the future hold for Devyn, both here at Clemson and beyond. You can check out an interview with Devyn here: https://bit.ly/2RVfk2k
