Levitt AMP Earlham Music Series presents Devon Gilfillian
Sunday • 8/4 • 6:00 – 9:00pm
Earlham City Park
Gilfillian released his self-titled debut EP in 2016, but really took off when he dropped his 2018 single “Troublemaker,” which caught the attention of Capitol Records and launched his career into orbit. The funky, R&B-based artist tops drum-heavy tracks with layer upon layer of his raw vocals to create soulful sensations that speak to his life experience. After touring with an eclectic variety of artists, from Keith Urban, Anderson East and Gladys Knight to The Fray, Devon Gilfillian is fully embracing his own sound and artistry in his forthcoming album. Check him out in Earlham on Sunday evening.
