Soulful rocker Devon Gilfillian fuses sweltering blues guitar riffs with rich gospel vocals for velvet-smooth jams that pack a punch. Growing up as the son of a singer, percussionist and audiophile father on the outskirts of Philadelphia, Gilfillian was always surrounded by music. Absorbing everything from the R&B swagger of Al Green and Ray Charles to the rock ‘n’ roll heroics of Jimi Hendrix, Gilfillian took up the electric guitar at the age of 14 and began his foray into writing his own music. Now based in Nashville, Tenn., he continues to draw on those powerhouse influences while rendering them with his own personalized style that’s teeming with high-octane energy, reverb-drenched guitar riffs and southern blues melodies. No stranger to Levitt stages, Gilfillian has delighted concertgoers at Levitt AMP Middlesboro (2018), Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks (2019), Levitt Pavilion Dayton (2018) and Levitt Shel Memphis (2018).
Following his 2016 debut EP filled with upbeat singles like “High” and “Troublemaker,” Gilfillian signed to Capitol Records in 2018 and hit the road, performing with the likes of Anderson East, Keith Urban, Gladys Knight, Kaleo, The Fray, Mavis Staples and more. In early 2019, Gilfillian traveled to Africa to find healing and inspiration before headlining a tour in Scandinavia and opening for Brothers Osborne on their spring tour. His latest single "Get Out and Get It" off of his forthcoming full-length record is available now.
