Devon Shives (born October 13, 1989 in Pittsburgh, PA ) , known better as his stage name Luni DeLorean, is an American unsigned rapper, singer, songwriter, producer, and performer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Luni DeLorean has created a futuristic music style that flirts with the genres of rap, R&B, and Pop. This style has given him the artistic license to effortlessly create interesting tracks that will allow him to expand and diversify his fan base to new markets.
Devon began singing and participating in community events including Talent Shows at the age of nine. This was only the beginning stage of developing his craft and brand. It wasn’t until the age of thirteen, Devon found out that he wasn’t just talented as a singer but as a rapper too. This realization occurred over lunch, a rap battle in the school cafeteria to be exact. He kept participating in rap battles for fun and practice as a way to perfect his craft namelessly. After his colleagues hearing many of his early battle raps; they named him Looney due to the topic more than not being about cartoons.
Looney applied himself to be more of a rapper and producer than a singer over the course of multiple years by releasing three mixtapes including his most recent mixtape “They call Me Looney”.
At this point many of his friends and fans either forgot or didn’t know that he could sing. After a while Looney developed a sense of maturity, revisited his brand and came to a realization that he needed to change his name to something more fitting to his brand and personality. Luni DeLorean was the name chosen to incorporate his love for cars and music. This name would allow him to incorporate all of his talents into a more mature and revised brand.
As of now Luni has been working hard in an effort to create the future of music in preparation for the release of his highly anticipated single “Go Dumb” to be released on November 11, 2014 via all major online retailers.
