EDDIE FROM OHIO'S MAY 2018 EMAILER
Happy May, Edheads
By all reports, Eddie did a bang up job in April playing the tubs behind SGGL in their sweep of the Commonwealth, Julie basked in birthday goodness on the 24th, and Robbie & Mike are still spoiled by The Nats 2017 start, and are hoping for a turnaround this month.
There are no EFO shows in May, but Mike can't seem to stop playing and talking. Read on...
MICHAEL CLEM TRIO OF FIVE AT TIN PAN IN RICHMOND, FRI MAY 25
After a fun sold out December EFO show at Richmond's new showcase venue, The Tin Pan was more than open to let Michael Clem back through the door with his Charlottesville-based Trio of Five. This promises to be a great show on May 25 and a fine way to kick off the Memorial Day weekend. If you haven't been to the Tin Pan yet, it's RVA's best offering yet of a Birchmere-like show experience.. great sound and atmosphere. C'mon out!
Also, as announced last month, Clem was interviewed by longtime friend Terri Allard for her show Charlottesville Inside Out. Taped by in September '17, Terri & Clem rapped about EFO, other musical endeavors, his first guitar and his last banjo. His 15 minutes of fame was trimmed back to about 13, and is viewable at this URL. The Clem portion of this half hour show starts at the 13:30 mark

ETHAN SCHAEFER RELEASES FIRST SOLO ALBUM!
As announced last month: Talent does NOT skip a generation, yet the 'apple not falling far from the tree' idiom is still true. Robbie's middle boy, Ethan, who has already been winning over audiences with his live set, has just released a collection of 8 original songs. Entitled Lost Lover Found, you can find this work at the following websites listed below. Check him out! This young budding collegiate talent could very well be the next.... ROBBIE SCHAEFER?!?
EDDIE FROM OHIO’S 1992 LIVE! AT THE BIRCHMERE CASSETTE RE-RELEASED!
Our first recording was a cassette - looong out of print, but it’s NOW AVAILABLE FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD!
On April 14, 1992, EFO took part in the WAMA Crosstown Jam. Our multi-act showcase was at The Birchmere in Arlandria VA (its legendary 2nd location directly on Mt Vernon Ave, blocks from the current locale). The wonderful house sound engineer, Billy Wolf, honored our request to make a board tape of our set. We couldn't believe the results of his beautiful mix, and decided to make a cassette for sale at our shows - a tape we referred to as "The 6 Pack". We moved a whole bunch of units at 5 bucks each, and it marked the beginning of growing our audience around our original music, and not just our covers. It also marked the beginning of an incredible relationship with Billy, who essentially took us under his wing, mentored us, and worked with us in earnest in the studio (producing 8 albums!) as well as other live projects. BOOya, Billy!
This recording has been out of circulation for some time, but a recent discovery of a fairly clean copy inspired us to make it available again. Hear us in all our infant glory (two acoustic guitars & hand percussion -- as well as Robbie on some killer guirro on track 5).
Go back in time to the days of Robbie's fanny pack, Mike's mullet, Eddie's dashiki, & Julie's midi dress w/combat boots. No pictures, just audio. You'll simply have to "imagine us" while you listen.
EFO 3 SONG SET CAPTURED ON VIDEO IN NYC
While we were at the ever-hospitable City Winery in New York City, we partook in one of their fine offerings: an intimate live video, professionally shot and edited called “Cellar Sessions, One on One”.
See the results for yourself on our video page
EFO MUSIC ON THE INTERNET
A number of you have reached out to us noticing that our music was no longer available at such platforms as Spotify, YouTube, etc… You’re very astute, but there’s no cause for long term alarm. We have been in the process of re-aligning all of our digital distribution which involved pulling down all of our music, and reloading with the good folks at CD Baby. From there, most of the internet partners you’ve come to know and love will eventually carry our titles, as well. In the meantime - all of EFO’s music is available for digital download at https://store.cdbaby.com/Search/ZWRkaWUgZnJvbSBvaGlv/0
Some hard copies for a few of the albums are available at BULLETPROOF, https://bulletproofartists.com/product-category/eddie-from-ohio/, but all digital downloads are available at CD Baby. iTunes, Amazon, and others will soon follow, hopefully within the month.
