Devon Gilfillian

A musical polymath with a deep knowledge and love of vintage soul, R&B, rock and hip-hop, the Philadelphia born, Nashville based Gilfillian, has seen his profile rise steadily since bursting into view with his electrifying, self-titled debut EP in 2016 and the release of his much-admired, 2020 LP, Black Hole Rainbow. GRAMMY nominated (for Best Engineered Album), the recording received glowing notices from NPR, the New York Times, PASTE, The Tennessean, and Garden & Gun, spawned two Top 10 Triple A radio hits and numerous syncs across Apple TV+, HBO, CBS, Fox Sports, NASCAR, and the NFL. In late 2020, Gilfillian also released a song for song remake of Marvin Gaye’s iconic album, What’s Going On, donating the funds toward low-income communities of color for election-cycle resources and education around the democratic process.

Concurrently, the in-demand musician has burnished his growing reputation as a captivating, can’t-miss live performer. Commanding club, theater, and festival stages around the world, while also supporting artists such as Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Lake Street Dive, Anderson East, Keith Urban, Gladys Knight, Kaleo, The Fray, and Mavis Staples, among many others, Gilfillian is building an enduring connection with a burgeoning audience both in the U.S and overseas. Dates this fall include several major festival appearances and a west coast run with Lake Street Dive. Check the full tour itinerary below.

Growing up in Philadelphia with a musician father, Gilfillian discovered that the towering icons of his musician dad’s era—Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, The Temptations, Hall & Oates—were just as foundational and exciting as the new sounds of his own generation: Wu-Tang Clan, Kanye West, the Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z, who inspired him in different ways.
