The Devil Makes Three
The Devil Makes Three
Not many bands in the current landscape continue to work this hand-hammered source material and channel the primeval, cathartic origins of roots music with as much pride and power as The Devil Makes Three. This shared ideal brought Pete Bernhard, Cooper McBean and Lucia Turino together almost 15 years ago, and they've remained steadfastly together and true to their vision over a staggering number of miles and gigs. They've been simplistically tagged as everything from punk to bluegrass to rockabilly, but one sweaty show will dispel and clarify; they know their tradition, but really what they do is throw down.

All that said, The Devil Makes Three has never relied on old material as its muse. They're a fine songwriting band, led by Pete Bernhard, whose rough and real tunes feels old and new at the same time. Now, however, after four studio albums and a couple of energetic live recordings, a long simmering idea has come to pass. Redemption & Ruin is a concept project of 12 hand-picked cover songs that bring fans in on the repertoire and legacy that have inspired The Devil Makes Three since before they even founded the band.
Lost Dog Street Band
Lost Dog Street Band
Lost Dog Street Band formed in the winter of 2010 after husband-and-wife duo Benjamin Tod (guitarist/vocalist) and Ashley Mae (fiddle player) parted ways with former musical project Barefoot Surrender. Originally conceived as a duet, Benjamin and Ashley quickly dedicated themselves to carrying the tradition of the American troubadour - hopping trains and hitchhiking across country while delivering their unique brand of original songwriting and tragic storytelling.

In the summer of 2011, while performing on the streets of Nashville, Tennessee, Benjamin and Ashley met Nicholas and Shannon Ridout, two skilled musicians traveling from the Pacific Northwest. Immediately inspired by each other's music, the two groups began writing collaboratively and soon formed the band Spit Shine. The four musicians quickly built a friendship stronger than family, and together poured their blood and sweat into the music of Spit Shine. For the next two years Lost Dog Street Band took a hiatus, until Nicholas's tragic death in the spring of 2013.

Pushing through the sorrow of the loss of their best friend, Lost Dog Street Band was resurrected with a fervency. Now doing very little street performing, Lost Dog Street Band tours the country each year, delivering their story through song in venues nationwide. Along the way they keep Nicholas's work alive by
sharing his music at the end of every show they play. They have since added a sometimes third member, longtime friend and drummer, Ivan Doertshuk.

 Drawing from years of lonely tramping, and more than one tragic loss, Lost Dog Street Band has crafted a distinct sound that is best described as 'dark country'. In the same vein as legend Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, Benjamin Tod weaves his melodies and lyrics together to offer listeners an unapologetically
raw and authentic account of the human experience.

When not on tour, Benjamin and Ashley (and their dog, Copper) spend their days at home in the countryside of Tennessee, where they work their land and carry on as full time artists.
JP Harris & Chance McCoy
JP Harris & Chance McCoy
JP Harris and Chance McCoy met under circumstances slightly different than many of Nashville's duos: a week-long, muddy, moonshine-fueled fiddler's convention, set high in the West Virginia mountains many summers ago. Over the last ten-some-odd years they continued to meet at random, drinking corn liquor and losing time in the drone of the old fiddle-and-banjo tunes of the 19th century they both love. In time, JP formed his notorious honky tonk band JP Harris and The Tough Choices, while Chance went on to join the Grammy clad, platinum-selling band Old Crow Medicine Show.
With their careers landing them both in Nashville, it was time at last for the pair to find an outlet for the old time music that had initially brought them together; however this time it is with a road-wizened ear, a new eclectic mix of folk, rock and country, and few more miles on their already-calloused fingers.
