Nashville-baserade Devon Gilfillian kommer till Skandinavien och Studio Acusticum i februari 2019!

Devon Gilfillians musik är nästan en egen genre. Han har lärt av soulmästare som Al Green och Ray Charles men även influerats av classic rock, blues, nutida r&b och mycket annat. Det är melodiöst och funky, rotat i tradition och framåtblickande på samma gång. Devon Gilfillian är en artist med klass och integritet och spås en lysande framtid.

Raised by a musical family, Devon Gilfillian grew up singing. He took up the electric guitar at 14 years old, kickstarting a fascination with classing rock and other sounds form an older generation. After moving to Nashville, he released his self-titled EP in May 2016. Equal parts swampy, funky, and enthralling, the record finds Giflillian planting one foot in the classic sound of his influences, with the other foot pointing somewhere new and uncharted. After all, he's no revivalist. No nostalgia act. No retro wannabe. Instead, Gilfillian is a classic artists for the modern age, discovering new life in soulful sounds that have been making people dance for decades.

Devon Gilfillian is one of the most exciting young artists in Nashville's burgeoning soul scene, and he's made his mark nationally, too, with songs from his 2016 self-titled debut EP. He signed to Capitol Records in late 2017, and in recent interviews, he's alluded to a potential full-length in 2018. If his new song "Troublemaker" – a raucous heaping of swampy soul rock – is any indication of what to expect from that project, music lovers are in for a serious treat
