A shape-shifting, multifaceted singer/songwriter, composer, actor, author, and producer, Houston, Texas-born and London, England-raised polymath Devonté Hynes has recorded under his own name and with the combustible chillwave outfit Test Icicles, as well as under the pseudonyms Blood Orange (atmospheric and cinematic electro-R&B) and Lightspeed Champion (rootsy, psych-tinged dream pop). Hynes has also written songs for artists as diverse as Florence + the Machine, Theophilus London, and Solange Knowles; served as a fashion consultant for Jay-Z's Rocawear; and collaborated with Nedelle Torrisi, Sky Ferreira, Foals, and Britney Spears. In 2013 Hynes provided the original score for director Gia Coppola's evocative coming-of-age film Palo Alto. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
