With six full length albums to date, Martin Devaney, "the unofficial mayor of St. Paul", is one of the Twin Cities best known songwriters. A former member of Heiruspecs and current front man of his side project Crossing Guards, Devaney is first and foremost a songwriter. Whether playing solo or with his rotating cast of players with a full band, he has crafted a tight set of songs over the years. Album #7, Plaid On Plaid, is due by the end of 2018.
