Anderson East

Anderson East made his debut on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last night performing his new single “All On My Mind.” Watch the full performance HERE. The song is currently Top 20 and climbing.

Out now on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records (purchase here), “All On My Mind” was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and Elektra Records President Gregg Nadel and was written by Ed Sheeran, Johnny McDaid, Anderson East and Aaron Raitiere. Watch/share the official music video HERE.

Already receiving widespread attention, Rolling Stone praises, “…sounds like pure East. Marching along with stabs of strings and swells of electric piano, ‘All On My Mind’ is a showcase for East’s rugged, raspy vocals as he ponders his obsession with a rule-breaking woman.” Additionally, East is currently featured as a SiriusXM “Spectrum Certified” artist. Previous artists featured in the music discovery series include Hozier, Kaleo, Leon Bridges and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats.

In celebration of the release, East will continue his extensive touring this month, including a series of dates supporting Chris Stapleton on his “All-American Road Show” tour. See below for complete tour details.

The release of “All On My Mind” culminates a breakout series of years for East following his widely praised debut album, Delilah, which NPR Music called “an eclectic, fully formed debut…” Additional critical praise included The Wall Street Journal who described, “…highlighted by Mr. East’s raw and raspy vocals and a backing band that channels the urgent rhythms and gospel-flavored sounds of ‘60s R&B and Southern soul music,” while American Songwriter asserted, “New artist debuts don’t come with much more industry buzz than the first release from singer/songwriter Anderson East…For better or worse, that sets expectations higher than those of most new artists. Thankfully, East meets them in 10 tracks and 33 minutes.”

In addition to making his television debut on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and appearing on “CBS This Morning Saturday” and Daryl Hall’s “Live from Daryl’s House,” East has also lent his talents to several notable projects. He’s been featured on Dave Cobb’s Southern Family compilation, contributed a song to Brandi Carlile’s Cover Stories LP and crafted the original song “What Would It Take” for the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack.

Devon Gilfillian fires twin barrels of gospel-blues and southern soul on his debut EP. Fueled by groove, guitar, and the powerful punch of Gilfillian's voice, the songs shine a light on a young songwriter who grew up outside of Philadelphia, absorbing everything from the R&B swagger of Al Green and Ray Charles to the rock & roll heroics of Jimi Hendrix. Now based in Nashville, Gilfillian puts a personalized stamp on those childhood influences, rolling them into five original songs that showcase not only his songwriting and singing, but also his talent as an instrumentalist.

Raised by a musical family, Gilfillian grew up singing. He took up the electric guitar at 14 years old, kickstarting a fascination with classic rock and other sounds from an older generation. By the time college rolled around, Gilfillian was playing three-hour shows in a local cover band, performing songs by the Meters one minute and the Beatles the next. The gigs allowed him to explore the full range of his influences, but Gilfillian wanted to play his own music, too. With that in mind, he moved to Nashville, eager to chase down his own muse.



Released in May 2016, the self-titled Devon Gilfillian finds him stepping into the spotlight as a solo artist. He recorded the songs with a small group of friends and collaborators, tapping drummer Jonathan Smalt and slide guitarist Jesse Thompson as co-producers. Equal parts swampy, funky, and enthralling, the record finds Gilfillian planting one foot in the classic sound of his influences, with the other foot pointing somewhere new and uncharted. After all, he's no revivalist. No nostalgia act. No retro wannabe. Instead, Gilfillian is a classic artist for the modern age, discovering new life in soulful sounds that have been making people dance for decades.
