The Buzz On: The Divine

The Divine are a hip-pop upstart who started out small and went on to win VMA Best Breakout LA Artist in MTV & Time Warner Cable’s Concert Battle in Hollywood.

Fronted by Shane Gelinas and Jason Byrnes, The Divine blends synth-y, atmospheric dance-pop and old-school freestyle R&B leanings with old-school Beastie Boys-style rhyme trading. Their Hittin’ The Street album brings to mind the powerful production of OneRepublic, the intimate earnestness of The Ready Set, party-ready antics of 3OH!3, and dance-ready urgency of R&B chart-toppers like Jason Derulo.
