ARTIST ON THE RISE: DEVON GILFILLIAN (SOUTHWEST AIRLINES)

Southwest Airlines' Music at Southwest.fm featured gospel-blues singer Devon Gilfillian as this month's Artist On The Rise. Now based in Nashville, Gilfillian puts a personalized stamp on those childhood influences (Al Green, Ray Charles, and Jimmy Hendrix), rolling them into songs that showcase not only his songwriting and singing, but also his talent as an instrumentalist. Released in May 2016, his self-titled Devon Gilfillian found him stepping into the spotlight as a solo artist.
