It’s only been a year since Sierra High School grad Devin Tailes left Northern California to chase her dream of musical stardom.

And she’s been making waves ever since as she works her way up the Hollywood ladder. She keeps adding to her growing list of credentials with dance-happy tracks that are gaining recognition in clubs across the country and even overseas.

Known by her stage name “Dev,” Tailes has been chasing her dream with friends and producers David Singer Vice and Niles Dhar – the duo that makes up “The Cataracs” – and recently landed her second video on mtvU as she focuses on the summer tour that she’s currently on with Far East Movement.

While it was released only last week, “Booty Bounce” – the trippy video that Tailes was working on with Director Ethan Lader even before she left on tour – was burning its way to the most popular video on and earning itself a mention as “Buzzworthy” on

Family members, friends, and former classmates will get the chance to see the young upstart perform on Thursday, Aug. 19, when “The Lazer Tag Tour” pulls into San Francisco’s Ruby Skye for a show for the 18-and-over crowd.

It’ll be the second time this month that Northern California residents will get the chance to see a tour stop after last weekend’s Modesto performance at xFest drew considerable crowds and attention. It drew fans to hear the popular club beat “Like a G6” that has already taken Hollywood by storm and helped turn Dev and her budding career into a dance icon in places like Rio De Janeiro and Milan.

“To see the reaction that people had to that song and the video was just crazy,” Tailes said. “Working with the Far East Movement and The Cataracs on that was amazing, and seeing how far it’s getting has been great.

“There are a lot of things going on, and that’s a good thing.”
