Chicago's Devil in a Woodpile plays their own brash country-rock, layering it with ragtime, sultry jazz, and some nasty blues to make roots rock an ever-changing genre in music.
The earnest band -- frontman/multi-instrumentalist Rick "Cookin" Sherry, steel guitarist Paul K., and bassist Tom Ray -- is truly in the industry for the blood, sweat, and tears of making quality music. Not playing into corporate marketing, Devil in a Woodpile signed with Bloodshot Records in the late '90s, releasing their self-titled debut album in 1998. Their sophomore effort, Division Street was issued two years later. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi
