The Devil Makes Three is an American band. They formed and remain based in Santa Cruz, California. They play a brand of acoustic music known to some as folk punk. It encompasses a blend of bluegrass, old time music, country, folk, blues, ragtime, and rockabilly. The group's members are guitarist Pete Bernhard, upright bassist Lucia Turino, and guitarist and tenor banjo player Cooper McBean. Career
The band has released four full-length albums. They independently released a self-titled album in 2002. Another independent release followed in 2004, Longjohns, Boots, And A Belt. The band recorded two shows in April 2006 in Felton, California with guest fiddler Chojo Jacques. The recordings were later released as a live album, A Little Bit Faster And A Little Bit Worse.
After the release of their live album, the band signed with independent label Milan Records, which specializes in film scores and soundtracks. Their first album on Milan was a re-release of their debut album, The Devil Makes Three. In 2009, they followed with an all-new album, Do Wrong Right.
Three years ago John Fullbright burst upon the Southwest music scene with a stellar live album recorded at the famous Blue Door in Oklahoma City. From his home in Okemah, Oklahoma, also the home of Woody Guthrie, John honed his songwriting and playing skills to such a degree that before he was out of high school he was a favorite at festival campgrounds. The past three years have seen John share the stage with Jimmy Webb, Michael Fracasso, Joe Ely, Steve Poltz and many others from Oklahoma to Europe and back.
With the release of “From The Ground Up”, Oklahoma singer/songwriter John Fullbright is certain to join any conversation about the best new artists in music today. Firmly rooted in a variety of musical styles, John draws on what has come before but without imitation. Forget labels when you listen to John Fullbright. He is not folk, not Americana and not pop, but possibly the best definition of them all. Fullbright’s earliest songwriting heroes, Townes Van Zandt and Mickey Newbury certainly infuse this record, but so do Jimmy Webb and Randy Newman and many of Fullbright’s lesser-known songwriting friends from Oklahoma and Texas.
