SOUL | Devon Gilfillian 

With a silvery aftertone reminiscent of The Reverend Al Green, Devon Gilfillian lets fly with some serious soul. This is the type of talent that ain't taught. It's in the blood; it's terminal. The man doesn't nip at tradition's heels. He harnesses an old school feel with contemporary ambient contributions from the rest of his band. His song "Travelin' Blues" starts out as a bluesy slow grind before winding down into beautiful chaos and reverb. Gilfillian will smack you coming and going with his searing soul. He proves there is plenty of room for something new.

Devon Gilfillian plays Wednesday, July 11, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 8 p.m. $8-$12.;
