Bob Schneider

Bob Schneider is a fixture on the Austin scene, having kicked around for years in various bands before embarking on a solo career in 1999. Born in Michigan and partially raised in Germany, he dropped out of the University of Texas at El Paso to front his first band, the funk and rap outfit Joe Rockhead. The band released three independent albums before disbanding immediately prior to signing with a major label. A stint with a jammy, slightly Phishy outfit called the Ugly Americans followed, which experienced some success as an opening act for the Dave Matthews Band. In 1997, Schneider went on to co-found the Scabs, where he made a further name for himself as a crotch-grabbing frontman. He then became a solo act in 1999, although performing at first under the band name Lonelyland.

Schneider's musical approach as a solo artist proved to be as eclectic as the diverse musical styles of his former bands, combining the traditional singer/songwriter aesthetic with elements of funk, country, rock, and folk. His scruffy good looks and strong, husky voice attracted some attention, too, but it was Schneider's music -- redolent of '70s icons from Neil Young to Paul Simon, with a slightly more modern sensibility reminiscent of Beck and edgy lyrics about alienation, drug addiction, and lost romance -- that maintained his high profile around Austin. He began courting a national fan base with 2001's Lonelyland, his major-label debut for Universal Records, and followed its release with 2004's I'm Good Now. Schneider left Universal later that year and moved over to Vanguard; meanwhile, he continued to release albums by various "side projects" via his own label, Shockorama Records. Most of those side projects would be re-released by Vanguard, as was another proper solo album, 2006's The Californian. Continuing to release material at a rapid rate, Schneider issued When the Sun Breaks Down on the Moon in 2007, Lovely Creatures in 2009, and A Perfect Day in 2011. ~ Mary Grady

I consider him the Dr.Seuss of Austin songwriters. His best effort "I'm Good Now" has enabled me to create dozens of new fans. His shows are always a blast. And he just released another new EP.

I always liked his music, one of the greats that you really never hear about. I first heard of him over 10 years ago on a local Austin morning show when he did a rendition of the wizard of OZ's If I Only Had a Brain.. I played his song 40 Dogs at my wedding and people loved it.

Love Bob! Saw him multiple time with Ugly Americans in Denver in the 90's. One time they opened for Bruce Cockburn at some radio station event which made for a really interesting mix in the crowd. I wish he'd do more of that stuff live.

His songs always give me a new surprise with each listen. I'll hear a line and think "What on earth is he talking about?" and then a week later I'll hear that same line and think "That is so deep Bob!!" What a great (and prolific!) lyricist. I named my cat Bob. Well, his name was Batman, but then he told me that I could just call him Bob.

Thank you Aaron Ruda for introducing me to BS. I love BS. If you didn't room with me that one semester; I'd still be with inconsiderat e Omar and I wouldn't have had the perfect roommate show me BS long long ago. BS keep coming to the Rhythm Room in Phoenix, AZ and don't stop being so awesome. Thanks.

I love Bob. Stumbled upon him on Austin City Limits almost a decade ago - what a find!

Having been to 10 or more live shows and as a devoted fan I can tell you this is the man. Different show every time and always satisfied I have to agree with Ms. Kellogg that a live show is the way to go. Now if we could collaborate a Frunk collection archive... 10 out of 10. Live shows are the cheapest ways to get albums too. 4 albums for $25 Bucks??? Love You Bob.

Pandora needs to play songs off of "Lovely Creatures" It's a great album, and it'll expand his audience.

To really appreciate Bob is to see him live. He is the best live show I've seen, no question. Check him out live and buy a frunk album after the show, you won't be disappointed and will have the best time.

Bob is one of my fave artists. I've never seen him live; however, my husband has in Austin during a business trip weekend. He came back with his CD and I fell in love with "Big, Blue Sea". Since, I secretly want to keep Bob to myself, but also can't wait for him to receive the attention he deserves as an amazingly, gifted artist. The whole world needs to hear him sing.
