(2021) Turning the downtime of the pandemic shutdown into something positive, Clem started writing & writing. Taking note of some of his new originals, performing partner Rusty Speidel, took note and suggested he get them recorded. Over a few nights in Clem’s living room, and long hours on his laptop at home, producer Speidel helped to shape five tunes into this new EP, Rivannarama. Also loaning their talents to the album are neighbor/friend/keyboard phenom, Matty Metcalfe (organ, piano, electric piano) and fiddle sensation, Malia Furtado.
Release date – 12 January 21

(2010) EP – The Michael Clem Trio features Clem on guitar, mandola, harp & mouth, and he is sandwiched by two fine fellow Charlottesville VA music chums, Rusty Speidel (of SGGL fame) on guitar & higher vocals, plus Thomas Gunn on upright bass & lonesomer vocals.
Recorded one December evening in Crozet VA, this five-pack introductory EP features four new Clem originals, and an ole cowpoke classic, sung by rustlin’ curmudgeons – so ornery – they’d shoot other men just for snorin’.
produced by Dave Stipe & The Michael Clem Trio
