The Los Angeles-based band, comprised of singer-songwriter Megan Brickwood, percussionist Caleb Conner, and cellist Mark Bassett, met each other four years after Brickwood made her way from Northern California to Los Angeles. They connected over their mutual inspirations, a mix of folk and rock influences with an infusion of Medieval storytelling. Much of their alternative folk sound has been crafted around Brickwood’s influences as a child in the Pacific Northwest, her connection to the ethereal landscape, and a desire to tell stories that showcase the emotional highs and lows of the human experience.
“The Devil Makes Three” taps into an earthy sound that’s shrouded in mystery and mysticism. The subtle combination of tangled rhythms and an eerie tone make for a layered, heavy-hearted sound. Brickwood’s warm, velvety voice billows over the soft melody, one that builds in vigor and emotion with each passing chord. Buoyed by the acoustic arrangement, the cello serves as an ominous third character that’s lurking beneath the surface of this uncertain and twisted story. It’s a stunningly crafted piece of music you’ll want to listen to again and again. Be sure to check out Wildeor’s “The Devil Makes Three,” out now! Listen here
