Underground singer/songwriter, based in Vilnius, Lithuania is one of the local initiators of acoustic psychedelic rock (which turned out to be influenced by soul music) with lyrics in English.
As the researcher and promoter of psychedelic music/art of the 60's and beyond he published the book "Garso gėlės" ( Sound Flowers ) on rock music and creativity in 2012.
Next year the first of it's kind "Vinyl Records Catalogue of Lithuanian Popular Music, Rock and Jazz on "Melodiya" Label 1962-1992" was compiled. Both books were issued by Mintis Publishers who were the pioneers in the field with the first ever Lithuanian rock music history/encyclopedia in 2010 to which Lukas Devita heavily contributed.
experimental 'one-man project' d e v i t a was established in 2005 as sound laboratory to combine acoustic instruments and electronics.
Some instrumental 'toy-albums' were produced starting with ASTRALIA (Dream Records,2006). Next one, LIBRARY TAPES:SKETCHES FOR THE SYNTH SOUND FESTIVAL ON MARS (Dream Records,2007) was compiled from the tracks performed exclusively on Polivox synthesiser (Soviet instrument made around 1985 in military factories).

SPACE DUTY (Dream Records, 2008) consists of 'intuitive piano takes and some old guitar tracks' remixed and is closest to vinyl pop art.
