In retrospect, it appears inevitable that Bob Schneider would become an artist. He was born in Michigan and raised in Germany, where his father pursued a career as a professional opera singer. As a boy, Schneider studied piano and guitar, often performing at family parties and backing his father on drums at nightclubs throughout his youth in Germany and Texas. 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, writes songs compulsively, writes poetry and regularly shows his visual art in galleries around Austin. With Blood and Bones, Schneider further cements his reputation as one of the most versatile, inventive and engaging songwriters working today.
Recorded quickly with producer Dwight Baker, who has worked on Schneider's last 6 releases, Blood and Bones highlights the chemistry that Schneider and his backing band of Austin's very best musicians have developed while relentlessly playing live, most notably at the monthly residency Schneider has held at Austin's Saxon Pub for the last 17 years. "I didn't want to overthink the songs," Schneider says. "I really respect Dwight's ability to make great calls when it comes to what works and isn't working when we are recording the songs. I felt pretty good about the quality of the songwriting, so I figured that would come through in the end if we just went in and played them the way I do live."
