    Come see Bob Schneider play at Johnny D's! 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.

    Come see Bob Schneider play at Johnny D's! 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.
