January Artist Spotlight

Your audience with The Devil Makes Three

With equal footing in bluegrass, rockabilly, and punk, Santa Cruz, CA’s The Devil Makes Three are trashing the barriers of alt-country with every show. Guitarist Pete Bernhard, upright bassist Lucia Turino and banjo player Cooper McBean (that’s right, there’s no drummer) have toured with Willie Nelson, played the Newport Folk Festival, and clued audiences worldwide to their raucous brand of roots-based songcraft.
