St. Louis Post Dispatch Talks to Devon About R&D

December 22nd, 2014

HOME TOWN PAPER St. Louis Post Dispatch Talks to Devon About R&D
“I grew up on ’70s rock and R&B radio both and got my affinity for James Brown, Curtis Mayfield and Al Green,” Allman says. “I remember that song from being a kid, and when I was getting songs ready for this record I heard it. I don’t know anyone who has covered it, though I’m sure it has been covered, and my producer thought it was a great song custom made for my voice.” READ ALL ABOUT IT!

DEVON ALLMAN IN GUITAR WORLD

December 22nd, 2014
As you’ll read below, Devon’s musical interests developed organically. Translating his passion for the music he was listening to on the radio into garage band roar, Devon was already forging his own sound by the time he met his famous father. And though their musical and personal paths have crossed over the years since, Devon’s path is truly his own, along with his sound, style and career. READ MORE

Most people will recognize the last name Allman but Devon is making a name for himself and developing his own sound. Devon Allman is a blues player traveling the world as a solo artist and as a member of the Royal Southern Brotherhood. His solo album “Ragged and Dirty” has been climbing the blues charts.

Relix: Devon Allman: Ragged & Dirty

November 4th, 2014

Yup, this is Gregg’s kid and there’s no denying the family connection. You can hear the paternal call in his gravelly voice and feel Uncle Duane’s deep Southern boogie in his guitar playing. But Devon Allman doesn’t just rake up dead leaves from around the family tree with these 12 cuts. There are hints of ‘90s folk rock (Del Amitri, anybody?), a dose of Stevie Ray Vaughan string-bending (“Blackjack Heartattack”) and a truly remarkable nine-minute-plus instrumental cut that sounds like a meeting of Robin Trower and Buddy Miles—with major props to drummer Tom Hambridge. The best song is “Times Have Changed,” a feisty dance-floor groover that borrows from—hallelujah!—Bachman-Turner Overdrive. And there’s a pretty great cover of The Spinners’ “I’ll Be Around,” too, which probably wouldn’t have made Papa’s playlist. From jazzy to jammy, this is a solid blues record with plenty of rock and rhythm muscle.
