THE EARLY DAYS
Eric began frequenting open mics as a young teen and grew to love playing music with all different types of people around town.
In 2013, he and his roommate Mike Stull formed the acoustic duo Mountain River and posted a string of covers and originals on YouTube, following them up with live performances at Java Central Open Mic in Westerville, Ohio.
The following year, he and Dani Harness formed Brave Weather, originally an acoustic duo which, after a year and a half, turned into a four piece band with bassist Efrum Imler and drummer Kenny Caterer. Brave Weather played their last show together in 2017.
Clemens & Co takes on many different forms ranging from a solo act to a band of 10 musicians, often fusing genres like blues rock with folk and hip hop. The band is currently booking festivals and shows in Columbus and the midwestern area of the US.
This year, Eric is working on his debut EP with Lou Kestella at ProToad Audio. For more information, visit the media section of the site.
