Michael Clem (Eddie From Ohio, Cleidsner Bell) will stop by WTJU this Tuesday afternoon during Around This Town for a special solo session at The Stage. Michael has a number of solo gigs coming around the area, including September 14 at Eastwood Farm & Winery. Around This Town airs Tuesday afternoon from 4-7 at 91.1FM, and streaming at wtju.net.
For over three decades, Michael Clem has been playing bass, singing and writing songs for the national touring act he co-founded, Eddie from Ohio. Over that time, EFO has amassed a sizable grassroots following, released nine CDs (all independently) & collected numerous Washington Area Music Association Awards. Since 2008, with the band slowing down, Clem has relocated from Northern Virginia to Charlottesville where he’s established quite a foothold in its musical scene, from session work to bluegrass gigs to forming his own acoustic acts, as well as performing solo quite often. In 2022, Clem was nominated as “Best Music Artist” by Cville Weekly‘s Best of Cville. He regularly fronts a Monday night house band from The Local in Charlottesville. Clem is also currently a resident teacher for Songwriting at The Front Porch. Since 2010, he has released three independent recordings, The Michael Clem Trio, Fifty Clementines & Rivannarama.
“A songwriter, a guitarist and observational comedian… Think Blink-182 with words by Todd Snider and you get an idea of what Clem does within the confines of folk-rock.” –The Washington Post
