On the forthcoming UK tour, The Devon Allman Project welcomes special guest Duane Betts. Each night will feature a set of Duane's originals, Devon Allman originals, Royal Southern Brotherhood and Honeytribe songs along with an encore set including Allman Brothers songs with Devon, Duane and special guests participating.

On September 7, 2017, ahead of kicking off the 2018 World Tour, Devon participated in an event at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles with multiple Grammy winning producer, Don Was, Scott Sharrard (Gregg's Musical Director) and Gregg's long-time manager, Michael Lehman.

Just two days later, on September 9, Devon accepted the key to the city of Macon at the historic Big House Museum on his father's behalf. The Mayor proclaimed December 8th Gregg Allman Day.

Not even a week later, there was yet another event and performance at the Americana Music Fest on September 15 with Buddy Miller, Joan Osborne, Pony Bradshaw, and John Paul White (Civil Wars).

Additionally, Devon joined The Gregg Allman Band at the Laid Back Festival (Gregg Allman estate curated event) in Atlanta on October 14. The band performed songs from Gregg's final album, Southern Blood, followed by a handful of Allman hits led by Devon.

A series of lengthy accomplishments have entitled Devon to take his own place in the Southern Rock pantheon.

His remarkable resume spans almost two decades, from his post-millennial breakout with Honeytribe, and the widely revered super group Royal Southern Brotherhood. Devon has also had occasion to jam with the greats such as Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Mr. Les Paul, Keith Urban, Gov’t Mule and Lynyrd Skynyrd just to name a few.

Through his run of successful solo albums, Turquoise was highly regarded by USA Today:Turquoise is reflective and soulful”; while Ride or Die hit #1 on the Billboard Blues Charts.
Devon is also a contributing writer to Guitar Player Magazine as well as serving on the Board of Directors for the National Blues Museum in St. Louis, Missouri.

The Devon Allman Project - Biography

When you’re part of a musical dynasty, it’s only natural that the personal and professional aspects of your life should intersect. It was no different for Devon Allman, whose late father Gregg Allman helped helm one of the most important and influential American bands of the past 50 years. It’s also little wonder that the younger Allman, an accomplished singer, songwriter and guitarist in his own right, should feel the tug of family responsibility and the desire to honour his father’s fabled legacy.

It was also only natural that following his father’s passing on May 27, 2017, Devon would take time to grieve his loss, be with his family and consider his own plans going forward. After all, he had been on the road continuously for twelve years, playing an average of 250 dates a year.

Consequently he took six months off to rally around his loved ones and “rack up more time with my kid,” as he put it. That included monthly visits to see relatives on the West Coast and taking the time to heal and rearm himself with the impetus and inspiration needed to embark upon the next phase of his career.

“It felt good to take that time off,” Devon says in retrospect. “I needed to step back and make up for lost time with the people that are close to me.”

Even so, he didn’t neglect music entirely. 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. An incredible array of artists took part -- Robert Randolph, brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson, G Love, members of
Phish, Samantha Fish, and Jimmy Hall, among them.

“It was a magical evening,” Devon recalls. “It was like a family gathering. There was so much great music, so many musicians who had such respect for my father, all of whom felt such a personal connection to both the man and his music. And when my manager told me that we could do the concert at the Fillmore, a place that obviously had such profound ties to my dad’s career, I couldn’t have been happier.”

The show also rekindled his enthusiasm for several projects he’s planning for 2018. 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. The two men have known each since 1989 when Devon was 17 and Duane was 12. “We’ve had this enduring friendship ever since we were kids,” Devon muses. “We’ve always talked about going out on tour together, and now the time seems right. He’ll start the show, then I’ll do my portion and finally the two of us will share the stage for the encore.”

It will, he says, be about comfort, remembrance and a special bond between musical brothers, sentiments that are especially meaningful at this particular time. The first round of World Tour dates will be announced by the end of January.

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 vibe fits the songs,” he promises.

Another upcoming project that he’s especially proud of is the launch of his new record label, Create Records. 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. In addition, the company will actively seek out new talent that can be nurtured and ultimately offered the opportunity to develop their craft and creativity. Devon himself will sit in the producer’s chair, with new releases scheduled approximately every 18 months.

“It’s always been my dream to start a label,” Allman insists. “As the name implies, this will be an artist-run, artist-friendly company which will foster an environment where musicians will be free to create, develop productive careers and make the best records they’re capable of making.”

Specific details about the label’s initial signings will follow in the coming months.

Devon Allman is a staunch proponent of authentic Southern Blues. It’s a legacy that’s always weighed heavy on his musical mantra. He’s chalked up a lengthy list of accomplishments that have entitled him to take his own place in the Southern Rock pantheon. 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. Nevertheless, the stature he’s achieved on his own via his three highly regarded solo albums -- 2013’s Turquoise, 2014’s Ragged & Dirty (praised by the UK’s Blues Magazine as “reminding you why the blues can be, quite simply, the best thing in the world”) and his most recent effort, the critically acclaimed Ride Or Die -- have proven his prowess as a singer, guitarist and provocateur worthy of being reckoned with based on his talent and tenacity alone.
