Devon Williams readies Gilding The Lily, tours (2014)

Following up two brilliant albums (2008’s Carefree and 2011’s Euphoria), Slumberland and Los Angeles’ Devon Williams are very proud to present Gilding The Lily. Williams’ shimmering pop combines his broad musical tastes with exceptional song-writing and arranging skill, and an unerring ear for melody – all of which are in ample evidence on Gilding The Lily.
Devon started recording Gilding The Lily with long-time associate Jorge Elbrecht (Lansing-Dreiden, Violens, Ariel Pink) immediately after completing Euphoria, and over the intervening two years the songs steadily evolved, mirroring changes in Williams’ life that include marriage and multiple intercontinental relocations.
