The Devil Makes Three Injects Gospel Into Its Acoustic Americana Sound

For Pete Bernhard, one of the guitarists and the primary singer for The Devil Makes Three, the process of creating the band's most recent album, I'm a Stranger Here, was surprising. It was the first time the trio did not produce the record themselves (country singer Buddy Miller took the reins), and they were matched up with musicians they had never played with before.

"What I'm most surprised about is how easily it all came together," Bernhard says. "We did a lot of rehearsal and demo'd songs, so by the time we got in there, we were ready to go."
