Bob Schneider is not new to this game. He has built his career as a working class musician and boasts an institution of faithful followers all across the country with a mega-fanbase epicenter in Austin. There have been highs - the success of 'Lonelyland,' and the next-big-thing hype that surrounded it. There have been lows - he was subsequently dropped by two labels. Through it all he has managed to flourish as an independent artist releasing five albums, hundreds of digital singles, and fronting three bands simultaneously. “Frunk” - aka his recorded live shows - have taken on a life of its own.

Austin is a renowned music town and the list of successful artists that call it home is as long as it is eclectic and numerous, but Bob has set himself apart in more ways than one: 'Lonelyland,' for instance, is the # 1 bestselling album ever at Waterloo Records, the city’s legendary indie music store, having sold 25,000 copies at that location alone. Bob also performs every Monday night at the tiny local favorite Saxon Pub, playing for a SRO crowd. When he’s not on the road, he plays as many as four more times per week at larger venues all over Austin. All of his many faces are revealed through his solo work and the bands that he fronts – The Scabs (performing at the 2010 Austin City Limits Music Festival), Texas Bluegrass Massacre, and Lonelyland. Fans have come to expect the unexpected from Bob Schneider but all of these bands give him free rein to explore the music that he loves – funk, pop, bluegrass, jazz, soul, blues, hip-hop and good old-fashioned bar rock raunchy enough to make you flush, and emotional enough to choke you up.
