During his thirty-five-year career, first with his band Mink DeVille (1974–1986) and later, on his own, Deville created original songs rooted in traditional American musical styles.

DeVille achieved prominence as a contemporary of the Ramones, Patti Smith, Television, Blondie and Talking Heads. After his move to New Orleans in 1988, he helped spark the roots revival of classic New Orleans R&B. His soulful lyrics and explorations in Latin rhythms and sounds helped define a new musical style sometimes called "Spanish-Americana". His 1987 album Miracle was produced by the Dire Straits guitarist Mark Knopfler. The song “Storybook Love” from the album was included in the film soundtrack for The Princess Bride and was nominated for an Academy award for best original song. “Raleigh Music Group is extremely proud to be representing the iconic Willy Deville catalog. His contribution as a songwriter and artist cannot be over-stated,“ says Peter Raleigh. Nina Deville adds, “I'm excited that Raleigh will represent Willy's music. They understand and appreciate his catalogue and that's all I can wish for. "
