Devan Kortan

A Sacramento native, Devan has been playing guitar for over 12 years in a variety of settings from bluegrass, indie rock, reggae, and hip hop. But his time at Rio Americano high school solidified jazz as his truest love and has since earned him accolades from the Monterey Jazz Festival, and the Charles Mingus and Essentially Ellington jazz competitions in New York City. Devan has performed all over the world and with such artists as Carl Allen, Howard Alden, Bria Skonberg, the New Orleans Jazz Vipers, and Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks.
Devan recently completed a degree at Sacramento State where he played jazz extensively and studied with Steve Homan. Over the summer, he is on staff at the Teagarden Jazz Camp.
