Personal life

Devon Werkheiser was born in Atlanta, Georgia, and raised in Johns Creek, Georgia. His parents enrolled him in acting classes at the Talent Factory, a local children’s acting program. After landing a minor role in We Were Soldiers, Werkheiser and his mother moved to LA to pursue his acting career. Since his arrival in Hollywood, Werkheiser landed several television and film roles, the biggest of which is that of Ned Bigby on Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. Recently, Werkheiser was cast in two significant roles in the upcoming movies Love at First Hiccup and The Prankster, both of which will feature his music.[2]

Werkheiser is pursuing acting and music careers. He is also active in several charities, most notably the Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation, which aids seriously ill children.

Werkheiser announced on his official YouTube account that he and fellow singer Molly McCook have been dating since early 2009.[3]

Music career

Werkheiser signed with Universal Records for his debut album, however his label status on MySpace has since changed to unsigned, possibly indicating that he is no longer with Universal.[4] His album, which is described as being a combination of rock and pop, will feature him singing and playing the guitar.[5] Werkheiser has requested that he be able to co-write the lyrics and music of all of his songs, and he has been working with artists including Tim Myers, Wally Gagel, Eddie Galan, and Charlie Midnight to help write his songs.[6] He performed live shows with female vocalists Kristen Marie Hollyin and Britney Christian[7] and plans to go on live tours after the release of the album.[8]

His first single, a full band production of the song "If Eyes Could Speak", is scheduled to be released on 1 April 2010 on iTunes.[citation needed]
