Devon Gilfillian fires twin barrels of gospel-blues and southern soul on his debut EP.

Fueled by groove, guitar, and the powerful punch of Gilfillian’s voice, the songs shine a light on a young songwriter who grew up outside of Philadelphia, absorbing everything from the R&B swagger of Al Green and Ray Charles to the rock & roll heroics of Jimi Hendrix. Now based in Nashville, Gilfillian puts a personalized stamp on those childhood influences, rolling them into five original songs that showcase not only his songwriting and singing, but also his talent as an instrumentalist. Gilfillian plants one foot in the classic sound of his influences, with the other foot pointing somewhere new and uncharted. After all, he’s no revivalist. No nostalgia act. No retro wannabe. He is a classic artist for the modern age, discovering new life in soulful sounds that have been making people dance for decades. Students from StArt of Cool (Art of Cool Project‘s jazz education initiative) open the evening.
