I recently interviewed singer, songwriter and guitarist Devon Allman about his first solo album, “Turquoise.” Devon is the oldest son of Gregg Allman, co-founder of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame greats The Allman Brothers Band. Devon talked about growing up without his father and what it was like to meet him for the first time.
Devon led the band Honeytribe before forming Royal Southern Brotherhood, a first-rate group of blues-rock musicians currently on tour in the US. The songs on “Turquoise” are based mostly on Devon’s life on and off the stage, like his flashback to the “good old days” on the jazzy “Time Machine.”
