The Devils Bards is exactly that: a band of three individuals, each a singer and songwriter in his or her own right. Three individuals who, at an early age, found that music was their only means of relieving the pain brought about by some of the experiences of life. Naturally, the songs of these bards were not born from the tales of heroes. Rather, from the loss, heartbreak, hopelessness, fear, loneliness, greed, rejection, lies, and insecurities that have burrowed their ways into even the healthiest of bodies and minds. Their talent came from their desire for some sort of cathartic expulsion of their pain and nightmares.
And it worked. Well adjusted as they may be, it’s due largely to the fact that these songs are the exorcisms of their devils. Hopefully they can be yours as well…
