Album Notes
"a man who looks like Townes(Van zandt) and writes equally good songs, Pete Bernhard of the Devil Makes Three. "

SF Weekly Feb 1, 2006

Things I Left Behind is Bernhard's first proper solo release, but its assurance and timelessness betray a musician who has spent years honing his songwriting and performance chops."
- Ashland Daily Tidings Sept.2006

"A unique style of folk and blues fused together."

- SFGate.com

"Pete Bernhard's cigarette-smoked vocals and honky-tonk finger picking is music I would listen to as I walked into the glinting sunset, moments after I killed a man, six-shooter smoking, and the cold hand of remorse creeping into my dusty heart."
- Portland Mercury

I am a big fan of the devil makes three but mr bernhard's solo cd is truly incredible. if you dont buy this you are really missing out

Shawn Cherry

Damn great!
While this album may feel a little short the densely packed sensational lyrics and rhythms more than make up for it. The only reason I give this four stars is so I don't accidently inflate his ego to the point of possibly leaving the band The Devil Makes Three which is also spectacular. Hell... I'll give it five anyway!

Anthony S

Well worth listening to, over and over.
I have listened to this CD many times on the road as I travel back and forth for work, and it keeps getting better. The lyrics are clever and the music is seemingly uncomplicated and this allows for a very balanced combination.


Smart Album
This album is great. Smart lyrics, great music. If you like acoustic guitar and melancholy music, you'll enjoy it!

So, yeah. This cd is fucking amazing. I felt like an asshole for not having it since it came out. I guess that there's always been this idealized country music in my head that I can't play...something far purer than pop music where everyone does what's cool. With this cd, the music actually means something. It's not mixed down and processed. It's raw, like a salad. Anyone that doesn't understand just how great this cd is, they are dumber than retards sniffing glue. The tempo change near the end of Fix It Up is like getting stoned for the first time. The most honest thing I've ever heard.


I loved this CD because it has a lot of the same feel as Devil Makes Three, but is different enough not to be repetitive. Pete Bernhard is an amazing songwriter and it really shows on this CD.

An excellent offering from inovative artist.
Petes CD has great rythym and his superb song craft is evident in all these songs. Extremely catchy, not only the best blues album I have bought for ages but its keeping Dave Alvins and Tom Pettys latest CD's of the turntable. Well done Pete!!! One minor gripe, writing on the inlay could be clearer.


Left Behind
I just hear this song with the IPTV series, CARRIER. It is about the crew of the Nimitz Carrier, the people, their responsibilities and their hardships. The series started tonight. I instantly liked the song. Sorry, I have not heard your name before but definitely want to get your CD.


Soulful lyrics - Awesome guitar & harp
Pete has taken a turn from the DM3 with his own style that is absolutely awesome. This LP will last the test of time! Thank you Pete. I'm always looking forward to live shows in Santa Cruz and of course the new live LP coming out from Don Quioxtes. This Lp will not let you down.
Buy It!


While on a motorcycle ride.....
While on a motorcycle ride I stopped in the small town of Ruch Oregon in a restaraunt called Magnolia. Pete Bernhard's CD was on thier player, it was inspiring. I immediately got online and orered the CD. It has great lyrics and the beats are smooth. Great stuff, look forward to the next release!
