Today’s Free Download – Devon Allman’s Honeytribe

TorchThe 30-year son of Gregg Allman fronts a band that broke up in 2001 and re-formed this year. This track is a pedal to the medal blues-rock stomp reminiscent of Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s tougher stuff. Unfortunately, Devon hasn’t amassed KWS’s chops, but what he lacks in finesse he makes up in passion.

“Torch” is the title cut form the band’s debut album on Liverwire Records, which drops next Tuesday.

Befitting his lineage, young Mr. Allman is a very capable singer, with a throaty baritone that can hit the high notes when it needs to. The band’s web site has a couple of other tracks streaming, a cover of Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” and “Maholo,” a nifty instrumental featuring Allman playing with the subtle dexterity of a young Carlos Santana.
