In spring 2018, the soul world was in thrall to the THE DEVONNS (pronounced “De-vaughns”) and their single ‘Come Back’. On it, the young Chicagoans combined all that was great and good about people like Curtis Mayfield, Jerry Butler, Johnny Pate and Leroy Hutson. The B side was the equally luscious ‘Think I’m Falling In Love’ and excitement grew when we told that a whole album was imminent.
Well, it’s taken quite a time but that promised LP is almost with us. Their people tell us that the Devonns eponymous album will be here at the start of April. Sneak previews reveal that the concise ten tracker lives up to what the single promised – a generous and sweet slice of Chicago nostalgia served with a contemporary, youthful twist… full review here very soon!
