Well, you've made it over to the bio section. You probably have questions. You probably want answers. You probably want to hear all about how I started playing guitar and singing at a young age. You may want to know about my first ever recording "Dad's are the Goodest." You definitely want all the details of the time I asked Maddy Hanrahan to marry me in Kindergarten(she said yes). Unfortunately, I'm not going to tell you any of that.

What I will tell you is that I completely and fully love music. I love to listen, create and simply be involved in any musical experience. It is the one constant fulfillment in my life and I cannot imagine where I would be without it. Those who make music are thrown into all sorts of different categories, but we can agree on the same feeling that keeps us coming back for more. It's a difficult thing to describe because it's intricate and simple. Like anything else, love would have to fit somewhere in the working definition, but it's beyond even that - it's love and hate. It's full of emotion, yet emotionless. Sometimes music and the baggage that it carries are better off embraced than explained. The point is, I'm going to put every ounce of my being into music because I know that it will give back to me. It will run through me and eventually make its way out to you.

If even one of you can listen to my music and feel these twisted emotions, then I could ask for nothing more. I want you to be able to find new meaning to things you thought you already knew. I want you to feel at home when you're listening. I want you to listen and be moved to create something of your own. Art is a universal language that is meant to be powerful and I'm going to take full advantage of that. For some, these goals get lost somewhere in translation. I want to let you know first hand that these ideas will always live in my core. So, if you'd like to know more about "Dad's are the Goodest" or my playground proposal, shoot me an email(Or buy me a drink). In the meantime, give my music a listen and open up your mind to that unexplainable feeling.

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.



Raised by a musical family, Gilfillian grew up singing. He took up the electric guitar at 14 years old, kickstarting a fascination with classic rock and other sounds from an older generation. By the time college rolled around, Gilfillian was playing three-hour shows in a local cover band, performing songs by the Meters one minute and the Beatles the next. The gigs allowed him to explore the full range of his influences, but Gilfillian wanted to play his own music, too. With that in mind, he moved to Nashville, eager to chase down his own muse.



Released in May 2016, the self-titled Devon Gilfillian finds him stepping into the spotlight as a solo artist. He recorded the songs with a small group of friends and collaborators, tapping drummer Jonathan Smalt and slide guitarist Jesse Thompson as co-producers. Equal parts swampy, funky, and enthralling, the record finds Gilfillian planting 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. Instead, Gilfillian is a classic artist for the modern age, discovering new life in soulful sounds that have been making people dance for decades.
