Troubadour and formerly syndicated cartoonist Roy Schneider has developed a devoted fan base for his particular flavor of Americana music since 2008, through international radio airplay and consistent touring with life-and-stage partner Kim Mayfield. From ballads and dirges to grooves and hollerin’ rockers, from intimate concerts and clubs to festival stages, this multitalented duo clocks up thousands of miles annually. This year Schneider & Mayfield released their long-anticipated first official Duo album, Reckless Saints. It features original compositions by Mayfield and includes some wonderful guest artists.
“Roy Schneider is a singer-songwriter in the grandest tradition of Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, Guy Clark, and Lyle Lovett, but his voice, songwriting skill, stagecraft, and instrumental talent are all his own. Together, the result is like a vibrant jubilee singing out on the banks of the Mississippi River. His gift for blending Southern-influenced folk, blues, country, and rock into a seamless genre with his own signature sound demonstrates his connection to the best in the tradition of fine wake-me-up and kick-me-in-the-ass roots music.” — No Depression
