Britt Devens Uses Platform to Raise Awareness for Mental Health in New EP ‘Back To Me’

Britt Devens is re-emerging in the music scene with a new perspective on life in her upcoming EP, Back To Me, which raises awareness for mental health. Amongst the many messages that Devens portrays with this album, ”take care of you” is the predominant theme as she uses her music and lyrics to promote self-care and self-love. As someone who has learned to adapt to panic and anxiety disorders, Devens is using her platform to help empower others to ask for help and to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and addiction. Back To Me is about just that…. finding the courage to ask for help, prioritizing self-care, and reassurance that finding love and recovery is possible.

With music and a voice that is often described as distinctly rich, gently emotive, and lyrically moving, Devens’ music serves as a therapeutic release for her and, she hopes, for her listeners as well. In the vein of Brandi Carlile, Devens’ distinct voice pulls listeners in as she shares her stories and creates a safe space for others who might be feeling the same emotions that she has experienced in her own life. “The album is about moving back home and trusting that there will be a brighter day when these Colorado winters seem so damn long… and to not just crawl back in bed and hide from the darkness,” says Devens. “It’s about knowing someone, somewhere out there has already been in some of life’s toughest situations and things did get better. That returning to your old, favorite self can be done…it’s about healing, and then finally smiling again with those that you love the most.” A reassurance to anyone currently struggling, Back To Me shows that recovery and finding love again IS possible and that all you need is within you, put your trust in your breath, and take it one day at a time.

For local Front Range Colorado listeners, Devens will present a series of captivating EP release shows. See the details for each below:

In a bold declaration, Megan Thee Stallion has officially crowned Jujutsu Kaisen as her reigning favorite anime. With unbridled enthusiasm, she declared, “Jujutsu Kaisen is setting the anime world on fire right now. It’s the absolute best! Don’t get me wrong, I love my other anime favorites, but Jujutsu Kaisen has my heart at the moment. Period. Real hot girl sh-t,” Megan shared with Teen Vogue. And if that wasn’t enough, Megan turned heads at the Anime Awards in Tokyo, dazzling in an outfit inspired by Jujutsu’s charismatic character, Gojo.

But Megan’s anime passion doesn’t stop there. At the awards ceremony, she strutted her stuff in an outfit paying homage to Bruno Bucciarati from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind. Megan’s attention to detail showcased her genuine love for the medium. The rapper spilled the beans on her anime fandom, even revealing her anime “backup dancers” from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. Bucciarati, in particular, earned a special mention because, as Megan put it, “he’s my boy, he’s got them moves already!” YuYu Hakusho claimed the title of Megan’s “comfort anime,” the one she finds herself dozing off to. And when it comes to genre preferences, Megan asserted, “I want that city tore up when the action goes down!”

Meanwhile, Megan’s positive vibes aren’t confined to the anime world. In a sizzling ad for Nike, she flaunted her curves and championed a positive mentality. Megan’s empowering message on Instagram read, “Hotties, with Thee Hottie State of Mind, it doesn’t matter what they see for you because you see it for yourself. Keep that same energy and attitude, no matter what life throws your way. Do what feels best for YOU.”

Megan’s influence extends beyond the music scene; fans have dubbed her the “Bottitheesiva,” drawing parallels to a figure in Buddhist mythology. With online followers already feeling the motivation from Megan’s “Hotties State of Mind” video, the question remains: Are you inspired too? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
