“A must-hear sophomore album born out of his experience as a Black man in today's America. With 11 stirring soul songs, Gilfillian offers a soundtrack to moments worth fighting for in life — love, equality and acceptance.”

        The Tennessean




"Defined as soul music and embraced by Nashville's Americana scene, Gilfillian's sonic landscape weaves through lanes of R&B, rock 'n' roll and hip-hop. He's an animated guitarist who can tear up a stage, but Gilfillian doesn't weigh down his songs with flashy playing. Instead, "Love You Anyway" focuses on what Nashville songwriters do best — stirring stories with strong melodies."

        The Tennessean



“What makes Gilfillian special, much like his musical kindred spirits in Brittany Howard, Gary Clark Jr., or Leon Bridges, is that he’s less of a retro revivalist and more of a modernist synthesizer of these sounds. Gilfillian finds a way to make the weight of R&B musical history weightless, sprinkling his touchstones and affinities across these tunes in a way that feels natural and reinvigorating.”

“Philadelphia native Devon Gilfillan continues to make waves with “Right Kind of Crazy,” his latest single from his upcoming album Love You Anyway. Influenced in equal parts by the hip-hop of his own childhood and the soul music of his father’s, the album still feels of the moment. “Right Kind of Crazy” is a frenetic song of desperation and desire with a melody that will stick with you long after its final fade.”
