“There are thick R&B grooves, shuddering funk breakdowns, and crunchy rock riffing drenched in his Philadelphia upbringing, but there’s a new lightness to it all, an exuberance that’s downright contagious.” – Rolling Stone
“Love You Anyway pushes boundaries as Gilfillian leans into his affinity for political activism through music.” – People Magazine
“Influenced in equal parts by the hip-hop of his own childhood and the soul music of his father’s, the album still feels of the moment. – Paste Magazine
Soul artist Devon Gilfillian announces two new mixes for his hit single “All I Really Wanna Do,” from his recently released 2nd full-length studio album Love You Anyway. The mixes capture the essence of sunrise and sunset, starting with the release of the glowing, stripped down “All I Really Wanna Do (Sunrise Mix),” out today via Fantasy Records. Listen HERE.
“This is the version I want you to hear waking up in the morning next to your boo,” says Gilfillian. “Get the coffee and tea going and start your day right. I layered a kaleidoscope of colorful guitars and vocals so that the production has a feeling of lightness, hope, and expectation – just like the morning.”
The second mix, “All I Really Wanna Do (Sunset Mix),” will arrive on June 15, directly ahead of Gilfillian’s first-ever performance at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival on June 17. Tonight, Devon takes the stage performing at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium co-headlining with Emily King.
“All I Really Wanna Do” has gained the hearts of fans across airwaves, reaching the Top 10 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Chart and debuting in the Top 25 on the Mediabase Triple A Chart. The song is featured on SiriusXM’s Spectrum Channel and included in The New York Times’ “Morning Spring 2023” official playlist.
Gilfillian’s new album, Love You Anyway, which recently surpassed 1 million streams on Spotify and hit #1 on the College Radio Soul/R&B chart, spans soul, hip-hop, R&B, and rock, all under the banner of Black joy.
Devon has recently appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show, CBS Saturday Morning, the GRAMMYS’ “Positive Vibes Only” series, and has been featured in Rolling Stone, People Magazine, Relix, No Depression, Rated R&B, Paste, and American Songwriter, among others.
