The Devil Makes Three

The Devil Makes Three. at ALLIANCE lockhart, we wanted to share the news that The Devil Makes Three will perform on Sunday: November 12, 2017 at the Commodore Ballroom - Vancouver, BC.

The Devil Makes Three formed in Santa Cruz and remain there to this date, their acoustic style is often described as Americana and blends various genres including bluegrass, country, folk and blues. They self released an eponymous album in 2002 but due lack of fan base or market, the album failed to chart. It did receive a re-release in 2007 after the band had taken time to tour and promote their music and it entered the US Grass charts at #7. They had recently signed with record label Milan who had seen their live album 'A Little Bit Faster and a Little Bit Worse' which impressed them so it was through their help that the debut achieved the chart position.

The next album 'Do Right Wrong' came in April 2009 and remains the band's highest chart position to date as it entered at #1 on the US Grass chart. In 2010 the band parted for a short time as Pete and Lucia relocated to their native Vermont while Cooper stayed in California, around the same time Cooper split from his current partner. A live album came in 2011 which debuted at #4 on the Grass chart, this was followed by the band's fourth original release 'I'm A Stranger Here' in 2013.

The fourth album peaked at #2 on the Grass chart and the US Heatseekers chart, their first appearance on the latter. It also appeared on the Indie and Folk chart, another first for the band. The band has toured across the world to promote this release and have appeared at numerous folk festivals.
