Amigo The Devil / Press

"Just three tracks, Diggers displays why the Devil is far more than a folkie with a dark side. There's a sepulchral beauty, acid wit and ingenious arrangements. Both his larynx and his lyrics make him one of the most unique voices in music -- even if he sticks only to songs of the doomed."

"...There is a familiar desperation in his voice –a nostalgic, bluesy bleakness, that is reminiscent of a Bon Iver or Johnny Cash or Nick Cave on a murderous rampage. The Devil’s world isn’t pretty, but it is tragically romantic..."

"Amigo is going to be big. I know this because I saw it with my own eyes at the show he played a few months back, when half the crowd sang along to every word of “Perfect Wife.” It’s not hearing the Palladium chant “kill people, burn shit, fuck school,” but it’s infinitely more haunting. You have a mad cult appeal if you can convince a room of people to sing along to smashing your wife’s face into a VCR for singing CCR. That’s the Ike & Tina version of “Proud Mary.”

"I haven't heard hooks about murder and torture this catchy since Biggie."

"A one-man band with a penchant for tales of murder and gore. It’s absolutely eery, almost too frightening if it wasn’t so damn intriguing. It’s the type of fan-fare I’m sure Poe would listen to were he still scribbling verses."
