Tunesday; Devon Gilfillian

We first discovered the soulful sounds
of Devon Gilfillian on Spotify's Discover
Weekly playlist. His song "Here and Now"
popped up on shuffle, and we never
turned back.

Devon Gilfillian, a Philidelphia native,
has planted his roots in Nashville, TN for
the past 3 years and says he has no
plans of returning home anytime soon.
His original songs showcase his childhood
influences ranging from the
 R&B workings of Al Green and Ray Charles 
to the rock & roll vibes of Jimi Hendrix.

By great happening, Devon happened to
be opening for Drew Holcomb a couple
of weeks ago in St. Louis at Delmar Hall.
We got to watch him front row and live
play his EP. We were in pure amazement
at the talent that was exuding off of the stage.
Every song you could just feel the emotion
and the meaning.

It turns out, Devon was also playing this
past weekend at Pilgrimage Festival at yet
another small stage called the Shady Grove. 
Listeners got to sit in the shade and immerse
themselves in the bluesy southern soul music.
We just feel lucky to have seen him 
twice in such a short time, and hope to
definitely see him again soon!

Hear for yourself! We dare you to 
stay still.
