EDDIE FROM OHIO FEBRUARY 2018 EMAILER

EDDIE FROM OHIO FEBRUARY 2018 EMAILER

Greetings, Edheads!

Thanks to all who came out to our banner Birchmere weekend in mid-January! It's always such a great start to our year. While there are no EFO shows in February, this Saturday the 3rd marks the 27th Anniversary of our first performance, which seems light years ago. Whuh? OH! Speaking of which...

ROBBIE SCHAEFER'S LIGHT YEARS STARTS THIS MONTH!

If you were at the Birchmere shows, you heard some of the songs. You may very well have picked up the new album and heard more of the songs. Now you can hear ALL of the songs in their fully realized theatrical presentation. This coming Tuesday, February 6 marks the PREMIERE of Robbie's brand new original musical! LIGHT YEARS is "a deeply personal tale of immigration, musical gifts and the steadfast bond between father and son”. It will run until March 4 at Arlington, Virginia’s Signature Theatre. We couldn't be prouder of our brother Robbie, and you will be, too!

Tickets are available now: http://www.sigtheatre.org/events/2017-18/light-years/

Robbie Schaefer's Sounds Like Home: Songs From Light Years is a collection of songs from his forthcoming musical, Sounds Like Home features Jake Armerding (Eddie From Ohio) on fiddle and Daniel Clarke (kd Lang, Ryan Adams) on piano. The CD is now out and will be available at the upcoming performances.

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.

& by all means, feel free to write a review at the CD Baby page...... but only if it's positive!





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”.

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.
