The Cleverlys Releasing Debut Album on Dec. 13

The Cleverlys

The ubiquitous question of “Where can I get music from these guys,” is here. The Cleverlys are releasing their debut album on December 13th. Hailing from the Ozarks, the ‘family’ band consisting of Digger, Miles, Vernon “VD” Dean, Harvey D and cousin Otto are a one-of-a-kind bluegrass group who uses comedy mixed with pop and amazing musicianship to put on a performance you will never forget.

“If you caught these spoofing yokels at CMA Music Fest last summer, you’re probably already grinning. Yes, it’s the Black Eyed Peas song done with hillbilly drawl and bluegrass instrumentation. On their eponymous debut CD, The Cleverlys do the same with The Bangles’ “Walk Like an Egyptian,” Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine” and, unforgettably, Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” Plus, you get originals like “Girl with No Pantyline.” The rube spoken-word passages are as riotous as the ditties are. Essential.” Music Row – Bob Oermann

Recorded at Stabbin’ Cabin Records home grown studio in the heart of the Ozarks, the atmosphere of their native land blows right through the collection that includes covers of songs like you’ve never heard including “I Gotta Feelin’”, “Angel”, “Billionaire”, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)”, “Walk Like an Egyptian”, “Born to Be with You” and “In the Pines/Ain’t No Sunshine”. You’ll be able to listen to their original music and comedy tracks titled, “Eye of the Cage”, “Girl with No Pantyline”, “Wheel Hoss”, “Intro the trio” and “Tennicles”.

Within a year of hitting the road, this family has sure garnered quite a following from coast-to-coast and around the globe. With over 1 million views on YouTube, thousands of fans on Facebook and rave reviews from USA TODAY, YAHOO! Music and THE LA TIMES, their highly anticipated album is finally here. You may have watched them perform to over 45,000 country music fans at LP Field in Nashville during CMA Fest, at Stagecoach, Grand Ole Opry, IBMA, The Station Inn, The Mint in LA or at their very own festival, Cleverlyfest.
