EDDIE FROM OHIO JUNE 2018 EMAILER
Happy June, Edheads
While all four members of EFO are as different as The Marx Brothers or The Teletubbies, we've usually been in agreement in cheering for the DC sports franchises.... and what a time to be a Washington sports fan - Caps tied up in the Stanley Cup against the Golden WayneNewtons, and the Nats, following two successive series sweeps, have reclaimed the top spot in the NL East (not to mention hosting this year's MLB All-Star Game). As part of the ole Throwback Thursday, we share a photo from 2000, when we were spontaneously asked to sing the Anthem for the Caps vs Penguins in the first round of the Cup. Apparently, Dave Grohl had to pull out at the last minute. Fine with us- we had a ball, even though the home team lost that evening (and that series).
There are no EFO shows in June, but there are a few things to share. Read on & GO TEAM!...
MICHAEL CLEM JUST KEEPS PLAYING & STUFF...
A big thanks to all who attended the Michael Clem Trio of Five show at the Tin Pan. Stay tuned for a hopeful return to that great Richmond VA spot.
Also, as announced in March, 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

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.
