The southern Gothic sound of Devil Met Contention is perfect if you feel like dancing, socializing or drowning your sorrows with a bottle of whiskey at the end of the bar. There’s something for everyone in this music.

Devil Met Contention combines country, folk and blues into a dark Americana sound that brings to mind Nick Cave, Tom Waits and Johnny Cash. Formed in 2012 by singer/songwriter Ehson Rad, under the mentorship of the late UWM Music Professor and Resident Harley Davidson historian Martin Jack Rosenblum, the lineup is rounded out by bassist Max Nemer, guitarist David Schuyler and drummer Nez.
