April 13, 2014 An Iowa native who lives in Los Angeles, Melanie Devaney is a small-town girl with a flair for writing and singing earthy songs that smartly draw from folk, country and rock. Armed with a degree in creative writing and years of classical piano training, she’s a promising young artist whose unaffected music is delivered with a welcome absence of fuss. If her live shows match her arresting new album, “Single Subject Notebook” (which was expertly produced by Ryan Adams veteran Jamie Candiloro), Devaney should be worth catching. She also performs a free show Thursday at 7 p.m. at the E Street Cafe, 128 W. E St. in Encinitas: (760) 230-2038; estreetcafe.com George Varga
