Devon Allman Band Performs Live

The Devon Allman Band is releasing their new Album titled “Ride of Die” that debuts #1 on billboard and Itunes blues charts with his International Tour at the Hammond Civic Center in Hammond Indiana on Saturday, March 25th at 8pm.

No one who currently resides on Planet Earth is immune to the chaos and craziness that currently infects the word around us. It doesn’t matter if you’re a musician, a stay at home mom, a high powered executive, or someone who’s bound to a desk 9 to 5, desperation and despair are everywhere and it takes incredible faith and fortitude to simply stay centered.

With that in mind, it’s rather reassuring to find Devon Allman offering up an album like Ride Or Die, a wholly compelling set of songs that gives voice to those concerns while also offering up hope for personal survival. “The world is getting crazier by the minute,” Allman notes. “These songs are about pain, addiction, storms, lust, death, and feeling sometimes that you’re utterly lost. But conversely, it’s about finding your place in the universe, rebirth, strength, redemption, vindication…”

Allman should know. As the son of living legend and Allman Brothers co-founder Gregg Allman, he’s witnessed those trying times firsthand. To his credit however, he’s forged a successful solo career that’s brought him to the very peak of the Southern Rock hierarchy. His remarkable resume spans two decades, from his post-millennial breakouts – proving his prowess as a singer, guitarist and provocateur worthy of being reckoned with. 

No wonder then that Ride Or Die is such a singular affair. Recorded at Nashville’s Sound Stage Studios and Switchyard Studios this past May, it found Allman and an exceptional cast of musicians — Tom Hambridge (drums/co-production), Tyler Stokes (guitars), Steve Duerst (bass) Ron Holloway (saxophone), Bobby Yang (strings) and Kevin McKendree (keys) Having composed or co-composed all but two of its songs, Allman eloquently expresses what it means to be human, while staying true to his muse, regardless of where it leads him.

Beyond the blues, this is a showcase for an artist with every colour in his palette. “This album is really about mixing all of my influences,”Allman insists. “Soul, rock, blues, alternative and more. It’s about making an artistic statement, not about fitting into any category. I produced this album to be an eargasm of emotion.”

That may be true, but thankfully, with “Ride Or Die,” Allman also assures us that we’re not alone.
