Eddie From Ohio Background
Eddie From Ohio dates back to when Michael Clem and Robbie Schaefer, friends since childhood, studied at James Madison University in Virginia. It was there they organized the Jellyfish Blues Band. Eventually, they hooked up with Eddie Hartness, a fellow James Madison University student and Julie Murphy (now Murphy Wells), a friend Schaefer kept in touch with from his high school days. After joining Schaefer during his solo performance, Wells and Clem tossed around the idea of launching Eddie From Ohio. They asked Hartness to join the fold, and Eddie From Ohio was born.
In the beginning, their songbook was comprised of tunes originally done by artists like Blues Traveler and The Byrds. But soon Clem and Schaefer put their writing chops to use and added their original material to their growing folk music repertoire.
Around the same time of their inception (in 1991), Eddie From Ohio established Virginia Soul, their own label. Through this endeavor, they were able to have more control over their engagements as well as the production of their CDs and cassettes.
It didn't take them long to score a regular gig at the Bad Habits Grille on Tuesdays. Their popularity grew as paralleled by the cover charge - from no cover charge to $5 a head and wall-to-wall patrons faithfully on Tuesdays.
The gig served as a great starting point for cultivating a loyal fan base. Eddie From Ohio additionally garnered the attention of Fleming and Associates. With this booking agency's assistance, the band adhered to a lengthier and more aggressive tour schedule.
Seven years after they launched, Eddie From Ohio was recognized for their efforts with a Wammie as "Best Contemporary Folk Group," presented by the Washington Area Music Association. That same year, they put their Bad Habits gig in the rear view mirror and started to make the rounds on the D.C. circuit. They earned many more loyal followers as well, representing every corner of the nation.
In 2005, the band wound down their tour schedule following Wells' diagnosis of breast cancer. As a result, the bandmates branched out. Hartness can still be found on stage with local groups like Brother Shamus. Schaefer and Clem also continue to play.
