EEF BARZELAY: Although much admired by some of musics biggest names, (Bon Iver, Avett Brothers, Ben Folds), and praised by the likes of NPR, the AV Club, and Rolling Stone, Eef Barzelay and his band Clem Snide have managed to stay mostly below the radar for well over a decade. After a brief flirtation with Seymor Steins Sire label they gently exploded unto the late nineties music scene with Your Favorite Music; A slow-paced and spare offering that mixed elemental forms of American music with a sonic palette of distressed cello, unexpected samples, and Eef Barzelays cracked voice and left-of-center word play. Soon there after, in the spring of 2001, the band released The Ghost Of Fashion on the now defunct SpinArt label which brought them tantalizingly close to mainstream success when the song Moment in the Sun was used as the opening theme for the hit NBC show Ed. Though plagued with inter band friction and general mismanagement the band made two more records and toured hard though out the US, UK, and Europe before finally calling it quits in 2005. At which point Eef released a couple solo records and tried his hand at scoring movies, most notably the 2007 Sundance hit Rocket Science. More recently Eef wrote the score to William H Macy's directorial debut Rudderless, had an original song at the close of Isabel Coixet's latest film "Nobody Wants The Night, and the Clem Snide classic No Ones More Happy Than You was used throughout a recent episode of CBS hit show The Good Wife. Eef is a 48 year old Taurus who enjoys disaster porn, hand rolled cigarettes, and spending time with his wife and two kids in Nashville TN. He has just completed a new Clem Snide record with the help of Scott Avett to be released sometime in 2019. Eef Barzelay may be the most underrated songwriter in the business today, with a sneakily firm grasp on poignancy and humor, and his live performances convey a kind of awkwardly fidgety fearlessness NPR - Stephen Thompson Barzelays voice, It isnt your traditional singing voice, It has a whine pitch that is more about emotional exhaustion than it is weakness. Its equal parts River Cuomos sarcasm, Daniel Johnstons sadness and Mark Oliver Everetts attention to detail. For a time, it was also the most recognizable voice in a small indie circle defined by recognizable voices, one you would hear through the doors of dormitories and on the far end of music dials. Truly, it had the potential to be the voice of a decade. Pop Matters - Joseph Carver
