Stop Draggin My Heart Around
Label: Ruf Records GmbH
Devon might be the son of the iconic Gregg Allman, but his sound has traveled its own trajectory since he rose to prominence with Honeytribe in the late '00s. On his solo debut Turquoise, he blends his love for Southern blues and neo-hippie jam rock with smoothly purring rhythms reminiscent of Steely Dan, Doobie Brothers and Little Feat. As can be expected, Allman handles the bulk of the vocals, yet modern-blues fans should be on the lookout for a duet with shredder and bombshell Samantha Fish; together, they tackle the Petty-Nicks classic "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around."
