Innovative artistry from a true Texas original
If there’s one thing that Bob Schneider has excelled at in his career, it’s bringing audiences back. Although he’s received little national press or major label support, Bob has managed to become one of the most celebrated musicians in Austin, if not in Texas. His fans, who often discover him after being brought to his shows by friends, are fiercely loyal. Many have attended dozens or even hundreds of shows. Thanks to his fan loyalty, Bob has won more Austin Music Awards than any other musician, including Best Album, Best Songwriter, Best Musician and Best Male Vocals, totaling 59 awards to date. In retrospect, it appears inevitable that Bob would become an artist. As a boy, he studied piano and guitar, often performing at family parties and backing his father on drums in nightclubs throughout his youth. He went on to study art – his other primary passion and avocation – at the University of Texas El Paso before moving to Austin and establishing himself as a musician. He performs relentlessly, creates new music compulsively, writes poetry and regularly shows his visual art in galleries around Austin. His latest album, Blood and Bones, further cements his reputation as one of the most versatile, inventive and engaging songwriters working today.
