Bob Schneider has built his career as a working class musician with an institution of faithful followers all across the country with a mega-fan-base epicenter in Austin. He has flourished as an independent artist releasing five albums, hundreds of digital singles, and fronting three bands simultaneously.
Austin is a renowned music town and the list of successful artists that call it home is as long as it is eclectic and numerous, but Bob has set himself apart in more ways than one: 'Lonelyland,' for instance, is the # 1 bestselling album ever at Waterloo Records, the cityâ€™s legendary indie music store, having sold 25,000 copies at that location alone. Bob also performs every Monday night at the tiny local favorite Saxon Pub, playing both old and new material for a SRO crowd. And when he isnâ€™t on the road, Bob plays as many as four more times per week at larger venues all over Austin.
At the core of Bob Schneiderâ€™s talent lies a versatile singer/songwriter. But Bob has too much to say and too much to play to be tied to the limits of that model. All of his many faces are revealed through his solo work and the bands that he fronts â€“ The Scabs, Texas Bluegrass Massacre, and Lonelyland. His fans have come to expect the unexpected from Bob Schneider as explores all the music that he loves â€“ funk, pop, bluegrass, jazz, soul, blues, hip-hop and good old-fashioned bar rock raunchy enough to make you flush, and emotional enough to choke you up.
