The Devil’s Chord is Jessie Alsop & Ben Lang.  We like to make music that you can grill and drink beer to, we like funny lyrics and simple instrumentation.  Jessie is a percussion-melodica master. Ben is an acoustic wunderkind. Together we are The Devil’s Chord.

An unpleasant and dissonant combination of notes, the “devil’s chord” was banned from Renaissance-era church compositions and developed an infamous reputation as a result.
