The Devil Makes Three had the goal of being "an acoustic band but to play our shows like a rock show," the band changed notions of what acoustic music could be. Mixing styles from the ragtime and country music of the twenties and thirties to the rock-and-roll and punk music of their adolescence, The Devil Makes Three pushes the boundaries of acoustic music.
Citing influences as varied as Steve Earle, the Reverend Gary Davis, Memphis Jug Band, and Django Reinhardt, the band combines tight vocal harmonies with idiot-savant finger style guitar to create an exciting and original sound. The end result is genuine blues music that thrives as much in a live setting as it does on The Devil Makes Three.
