Personalities | Zeke Clements | West Coast Scene | Country

(Vocals, songwriter, 1911–94)

Much underrated and overlooked, Zeke Clements combined cowboy songs with fine yodelling, and moved around the nation’s radio stations – WLS (Chicago), WSM (Nashville) and other locations – before arriving in Hollywood and voicing the cartoon character Bashful in Walt Disney’s Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs (1937). After several movie appearances, he returned to Nashville’s WSM, became a member of the Grand Ole Opry, built up a substantial reputation as a songwriter and founded his own record label (Liberty).
