On December 8, 2017, on what would have been Gregg Allman’s 70th birthday, Devon and a group of special friends celebrated the elder Allman’s life and music with a special concert at the iconic Fillmore in San Francisco.
In March his new six-piece band, The Devon Allman Project, will launch a world tour with special guest Duane Betts, the son of Allman Brothers co-founder Dickey Betts.
Naturally, Allman also has a new record in the works for 2018 titled Full Speed Ahead, he describes it as an album that will be seeped in classic Americana tradition, the type of music made by Tom Petty, Jackson Browne and other harbingers of California’s fabled Laurel Canyon scene of the ’70s. While details and the release date will be announced in the coming months, Devon does promise that the music will reflect the sound of timeless classics of that vintage pedigree.
The first new release slated for November 2018 will be by a new band dubbed The Slays, a project featuring Devon and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars.
“It’s always been my dream to start a label,” Allman insists.
Devon Allman is a staunch proponent of authentic Southern Blues.
His remarkable resume spans two decades, from his post-millennial breakout with Devon Allman’s Honeytribe through to chart-topping collaborations with Jack Bruce, Javier Vargas, and the widely revered super group, Royal Southern Brotherhood.
