This is going to be an amazing kidnapping…I mean partnership,” said Digger Cleverly. Rolling Stone Magazine says Digger’s “out-of-date eyeglasses are as thick as his hillbilly accent, but whose comic sensibilities are a hilariously off-kilter hybrid of Homer & Jethro and The Office.” The publication highlighted The Cleverlys’ “uncaged cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ ‘By the Way‘ from their latest six-song EP, Cash Crop, released on the Average Joes Entertainment label and produced by Noah Gordon. Cash Crop is available now on iTunes. Digger is joined by his faux-family band are all accomplished musicians, their influences include Bill Monroe, Tony Rice, Public Enemy and Mott the Hoople.
