Devon Allman boasts an impressive musical pedigree -- his father and uncle are none other than Gregg and Duane Allman of the legendary Allman Brothers. Staying true to the family tradition, Devon has carved out his own niche in the music world with a distinct brand of classic blues sharpened with a modern rock edge. In concert he performs an eclectic mix of solo material, classic rock covers, and songs from his former band Honeytribe, nailing everything he takes on with a soulful voice that's a dead ringer for his dad's and a trusty Gibson Les Paul he calls his "Number One". As he takes the stage to perform favorites like "Midnight Lake Michigan" and newer cuts from 2014's Ragged & Dirty, it's easy to see why Allman has earned a reputation as one of genre's most entertaining performers.
Devon Allman was born in Corpus Christi, TX, and was raised by his mother in Texas, Tennessee, and Missouri. He started playing the guitar at a young age but it wasn't until his teens when he got close with his father -- Gregg Allman of the Allman Brothers Ban -- that he decided to take music seriously. For several years the younger Allman performed around St. Louis's vibrant club scene and in 1999 he formed the blues rock collective Honeytribe. The group toured extensively -- playing up to 300 shows a year -- and released one album as a six-piece, 2006's Torch, and another as a trio, 2010's Space Age Blues. In 2011 Allman co-founded the band Royal Southern Brotherhood, which released a self-titled album in 2012 and toured around the world. In 2013 Allman released his debut solo album Turquoise, and in 2014 he released his sophomore record Ragged & Dirty to critical acclaim.
