“Paraphrasing Waylon, it don’t matter who’s in Austin, Bob Schneider is still the king…” – Texas Monthly
When Spotify released its ranking of the top songs streamed in Austin in 2015, no one was surprised to find Bob Schneider holding the top three spots. For decades, no matter how the Austin music scene has evolved, or how the music industry has transformed, Bob Schneider has thrived. Known for his fiercely independent attitude and endless drive to innovate and create, Bob has built an unprecedented career in Austin.
Bob Schneider just might be the best artist you’ve never heard of. But this year alone, he’ll play over 80 shows in Austin and he’s headlining every premiere venue in town—the Paramount, the Bass Concert Hall, Dell Hall at the Long Center, and ACL Live/Moody Theater. Sure, he’s struggled to break out of the Texas bubble, but this doesn’t stop him. “If I were to listen to the gatekeepers—the critics, the charts—I’d never have done anything.” And though the media barely grants him sidelong glances, the audiences keep coming.
Bob packs houses, he croons, he makes everybody swoon.
Bob Schneider is always pushing himself. And he’s pushing his audience. His songs are alive, fierce, hilarious, raw, crass. And then soulful, haunting, sweet, good.
He’ll leave you breathless. He must leave you breathless. He pushes himself to breathlessness, howling into the mic, playing his fingers raw, the room awash in thick waves of sound.
Then he’s jaunty, silly, laughing at his own jokes and tossing around a flyaway tune. Listen closely, and the lyrics speak of loss, betrayal, sorrow. But he’ll sing it to you with a smile and a twinkle in his eye.
