Devon Allman Breedloves Guitars November Artist
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
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.

It’s OUT and it’s HOT
THE BEST – by Ashley Rich
These guys rock my socks off every time! Buy their music. And if you can, see them live!!! You won’t be disappointed!
Great album; Great band –
I have seen RSB live three times in Massachusetts. They have sold out every show and keep us all wanting more. The three vocalists: Cyril, Devon, and Mike give you a great variety of music and this album won’t disappoint! There is an older sound to me with this album and I think it offers different styles and songs than the first album. I love “She’s My Lady!” Great vocals and harmonizing!!
A Royal Thank You to the Wanee Music Festival
Devon Allman seems to be very comfortable within the ensemble of Royal Southern Brotherhood. His guitar work and vocals were featured throughout the group’s set, one of the first of the weekend, especially during “Back To You”, which Allman dedicated to someone he had met earlier that day whose father has recently passed away. Also, it was great to hear Yonrico Scott on the drums at Wanee again. Scott was the longtime drummer for the Derek Trucks Band.
