About Michael Clem:
For twenty-five years, 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 sizeable 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 trio.
Ten years after Clem’s first solo album, comes the better-late-than-never sophomore release Fifty Clementines. With thirteen previously unreleased songs, Clem brought in 30 friends from all over Virginia to contribute in the fine Charlottesville JLM Studios where he co-produced with James McLaughlin. Both release dates/birthday shows (in the current and former hometowns of Clem) in early January 2016 were full house smashing successes, featuring a killer five piece band combing his trio with his regular Monday night house band from The Local in Charlottesville.
