This three-piece band’s blend of bluegrass, blues, and ragtime isn’t exclusive within the zeitgeist of old-timey Americana, but frontman Pete Bernhard’s songwriting includes classic Biblical themes—good and evil, the cycles of death and rebirth, the climb from self-destruction to redemption—in a genuine, straightforward manner, and sets the group apart.

After all, this is the guy who pointed out “if you’re gonna do wrong, buddy, do wrong right.”— Do Wrong Right (2009)
