Devilish Publishing Music Publishers

About Us

Devilish Publishing is a music publisher of brass band, wind band, chamber and instrumental music based just outside York, UK. Formed in 2002 in Scotland, Devilish Publishing has grown from a vanity press to a reputable indie music publisher.

The ethos at Devilish Publishing has always been to produce high quality sheet music productions, typeset and printed to the very highest standard. We also take great pride in our rigorous editing and engraving process, ensuring that publications are error-free and fit for purpose. We go through every detail, in detail.

Innovation


We regularly set out to break the mould and introduce new innovations within the industry. This includes using the Lilypond engraving system; we are the only brass band publisher in the world with the expertise to produce exceptional prints engraved with Lilypond.

We are the only music publisher in the world that hosts our website and other web services (including email) on our own server on-premises. When you buy from us, your data is not stored by a 3rd party cheap hosting service! We take your data seriously and we protect it with the latest security protocols and patches.

In 2019 we introduced our playalong series, which has gone down a storm with its punchy and creative arrangements. Look out for many more playalongs to come!

In early 2020, we introduced a brass band innovation by providing each of our brass band publications with an extensive set of parts. We recognise banding has changed in the last 20 years; many bands are generously-subscribed in key areas. This is our way of acknowledging this and giving each band more-than-standard set of parts.

We are now on TrustPilot. Trustpilot is a well-known and trusted platform for our customers to have their say, and to help potential customers see what we do. Most customers don't leave a review, but we are sticking with it and hope you will also leave us a review!

In June 2021, we took the giant step of moving away from the off-the-shelf e-commerce web platform and have built our own complete website from the ground-up. This has given us complete control over the entire web experience for our customers, without vendor lock-in or erroneous and generic code. This new website marks a new era for Devilish Publishing, as a web-only business, we know how important it is for web experiences to be on the button for web visitors. Everything in this new website has been designed with your comfort in mind. Yes, we really do mean comfort! If you enjoy being on our site and moving around it, we've done our job right! We welcome your feedback too; let us know what you think and areas we could improve! This new website puts us above and beyond our competitors in terms of providing a non-generic and pleasing web experience tailored for YOU - help us develop it even further!

Pride in our Products


Just as we believe to be a good cook, you need to inject the passion and love, we're all about the love at Devilish Publishing. We are immensely proud of the production of our publications, and we make no apologies for shouting about it. Music prints is our game, if we were anything less than making moves to be the best, we shouldn't be doing this.
