Devon Gilfillian has performed at venues as diverse as the Newport Folk Festival, the Montreal Jazz Fest, and the 2018 NFL draft. He covered Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy Mercy Me” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and you just might notice a bit of a vocal resemblance to the Prince of Soul. Devon has opened for Gladys Knight, Mavis Staples, The Brothers Osborne, Grace Potter, and Michael McDonald. In April he released his second album, “Love You Anyway,” on the Fantasy label, Chronicling Gilfillian’s journey as a Black artist living in America, it’s as much about fighting for what you believe in: equity and representation, as it is about love – finding it, making it, and channeling it into every facet of our lives.

A captivating, can’t-miss live performer, the Philadelphia-born, Nashville based singer-songwriter regularly commands club, theater, and festival stages around the world. You may have seen his joyful performance at Ann Arbor’s own Sonic Lunch last summer.
