After a successful year touring as The Devon Allman Project with special guest Duane Betts, the sons of Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts are joining forces to form The Allman Betts Band.
They will kick off 2019 with a new Allman Betts Band album and a worldwide tour that will feature new music, songs from their solo projects and classic Allman Brothers and Gregg Allman tunes in honor of the 50th Anniversary of The Allman Brothers Band. The new album, slated for release in the Spring of 2019, will be recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studios and will be produced by Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, John Prine and Elvis Presley). Former Allman Brothers Band keyboardist and current Rolling Stones keyboardist, Chuck Leveall, will guest on the record.
The new ABB includes Devon Allman, Duane Betts, Berry Oakley Jr. (son of original Allman Brothers Band bassist Berry Oakley), Johnny Stachela (slide guitar) and Devon Allman Project percussionists R. Scott Bryan (Sheryl Crow) and John Lum.
The Allman Betts Band launched a world tour in March and will perform throughout 2019 at festivals, theaters and historic venues.
Stoll Vaughan’s latest record The Conversation, was released this past summer. It was co-produced by Carl Broemel, guitarist of My Morning Jacket and Mike Wanchic, Mellencamp’s longtime guitarist and co-producer. The album’s title, Stoll says, signifies “being in a continual conversation regarding people, God, and the fears we carry around—and how music interplays with everything emotionally and spiritually. But it’s really me trying to listen, and then relying on trusted friends to help me put down what I heard.”
Originally hails from Kentucky. His first two records “Hold on Thru Sleep and Dreams” and “Love Like A Mule” were in the Top 10 on the Americana charts. Stoll has toured all over the United States and Europe. He has played venues such as Red Rocks, Hollywood Bowl, The Troubadour (NY and LA), Jones Beach. He has played Farm Aid. He was in the top three at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival songwriting competition. He has toured with the likes of John Mellencamp, John Fogerty, James McMurtry, Marty Stuart and opened for a Def Leppard/Journey co-bill (to name a few). Vaughan made his way to LA via Nashville, where he now resides. His music has been featured in major motion pictures and television series such as True Blood, Friday Night Lights, Shameless, The Office, The Open Road and composed music for David Lynch’s Webby Award winning Internet series Interview Project. Vaughan helped develop, co-produce, and co-write for recently released Sketches of American Music, the debut EP by Duane Betts, son of Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dickey Betts. He also co-wrote with Duane and Devon Allman (Greg Allman’s son) for their debut record as The Allman Betts Band.
