Wild Dove

Wild Dove is the project of Canadian songwriter Devan Christodoulou. He is the former lead singer of the indie-folk band Echo Nebraska, with whom he released two critically-acclaimed records, toured the country numerous times, and performed on international stages. When the band dissolved in 2019, Christodoulou became a parent, and, with the sudden changes in his life, so too did his perspectives evolve. He became a provider in his personal life, and musically, his intentions took on a similar role, "I want to give back to others what music has given me," says Christodoulou, "The messages I've received over the years from people telling me I've helped them get through their grief, that is the mission—that is what keeps me doing this."

With Wild Dove’s first EP, Bound for Glory (2020), we are introduced to a songwriter with a fine-tuned ear for catchy, uplifting melodies and life-affirming narratives. At their core, the songs on the EP are a blend of modern pop and Canadiana rock. They are presented through sweeping, gospel-gilded productions that invoke a peculiar optimism, reminiscent of the feelings one has when spring finally arrives.

While composing Bound for Glory, Christodoulou sought to channel the whirlwind of emotions he felt as a new father. "The record was created out of my excitement, uncertainty, and joy," he says, "I looked back on my childhood and imagined what the future might look like for my son. My close relationships intensified and so did my love for the world, and I felt responsible for making it a better place for my son to live." On Bound for Glory, Christodoulou demonstrates his prowess as a singer,where he delivers powerful performances of energetic, memorable pop melodies. "Prove It," a song on the EP about embracing one's individuality, was featured in the Emmy-award-winning Netflix original Love is Blind.

After the release of Bound for Glory, Wild Dove recorded and released two follow-up singles, "Down," an empowering pop ballad aimed at breaking down the mental health stigma, and "Baby Boy," a catchy, Canadiana pop-rock song dedicated to his son.

In April 2022, Wild Dove released "Come Back to Life," a song that blends modern techniques with the nostalgic sound of '80s pop-rock. The single was recorded and co-produced by his close friend and former Echo Nebraska-member Andy Schichter (Parlour Panther, Sleepy Gonzales, Porteau). The song is a reminder to anyone overworked and exhausted to take the time to care for themselves—to come back to and enjoy the beautiful world around them.

Devan Christodoulou currently resides in beautiful New Westminster, British Columbia, with his partner and son.
