Kyle Devine is a prolific multi genre producer based in the good food filled city of Portland, Oregon. Whether it’s a heavy hip hop anthem, sweaty club banger or a beautiful orchestral piece, Devine’s work is typified by sophisticated, soulful rhythms met with instrumentation (both synthetic and classic) that reveal fresh blooming depth with each passing bar.
As a young man, Devine became influenced by pop music and its producers such as Max Martin, Dr. Dre, and Just Blaze. He was soon loading songs into a wave editor and examining each producers nuance by ear and by eye. Kyle began his career as producer in 2001 when his wife purchased him a drum machine as a gift, selling his first beat shortly thereafter and never looking back. Devine soon opened a commercial recording and production studio, dubbed Devine Noise, in North Portland and has worked with over 500 clients and on over 100 albums as a producer and engineer.
Kyle Devine’s body of work, always alive and pulsing with palpable energy, soul, and life, not only sounds extraordinary, it feels incredible, and that is what it’s all about.

With sonic branding, I craft a piece of music that connects your audience to your story.
Sonic branding is thinking about music in a strategic way. What does your brand, product or service sound like? Who is the demographic? It extends your visual communication with an audio identity.
Sound, and in particular music, is very good in triggering memories. Therefore music and audio logos are a very strong tool in branding. Branding with both visual and audio elements is much stronger than branding with visuals only.

I just started working with Kyle on my project and I’m so glad that I did. He gives honest feedback, is patient, has helpful suggestions, and does everything in his power to make your recording sound as good as possible. His technical engineering skills were really impressive, and I was struck by how detail oriented he was. If you’re serious about your music, regardless of genre, I would highly recommend recording your project at Devine Noise.

Kyle is brilliant as a producer. He has a great handle on current sounds and beats, and a great ear for building arrangements that work, resulting in modern, fresh, impactful mixes. Rap, pop, dance. rock…. he has a great ear for it all.
If you are looking for an engineer/producer to turn you ideas into a finished product that really shines, Kyle should be at the top of your list.

Kyle is an amazing producer and engineer that captures exactly what you are hearing in your head or trying to convey by way of rough mind sketches. He can take the colors of sound that you may be visualizing and directly lay them out for you to hear in many different shapes and forms. He’s also a master of beats… the guy can create, produce and master any beat your looking for:-)

I’ve had the good fortune of working with Kyle on a couple of large projects in the past year. I really enjoy the quality of his work… his sounds are great, his mixes very punchy and always radio ready, and his writing is very creative and fresh. Totally in touch. We have great communication and Kyle is very quick with any revisions or tweaks, and he’s also on top of all his paperwork. Really appreciate working with Kyle and will again.
