Clem Snide Covers Journey’s “Faithfully”

Sep 8th, 2011 in Music

We agree one thousand percent with Ben Folds who has said this about Clem Snide’s Eef Barzelay:I can listen to that guy sing anything, all day.”  And judge ye not, Folds knows a thing or two about singing.  We’ll just say this about Eef Barzelay:  he is America’s most underrated living singer (which is to take nothing away from his stellar songwriting), with phrasing skills to shame the Famers.  You don’t need any more proof of the foregoing than in the recent A.V. Undercover video in which Eef enthralls while covering (of all things) Journey’s song, Faithfully, and accompanying himself beautifully on ukelele. Turns out you can, in fact, turn a sow’s ear into a silk purse.   Enjoy.

If you enjoy this video, make sure you check out more of Clem Snide’s musical offerings HERE (including a 6-song EP of Journey covers).  Says there that he’ll also write you a song for $200, or if we can pull together $1,000 (plus traveling expenses), we can get one of the nation’s musical treasures to do a show in Santa Barbara.  His Lobero show for Sings Like Hell a couple of years ago was simply spell-binding.  Who’s in??

And while you’re at it, check out the other A.V. Undercover offerings at the link above.  A.V. also has a hilarious interview with the witty Eef HERE.
