For Bob Schneider, the name says it all.

“Because the songs are all love songs, for the most part, I ended up calling the record Lovely Creatures, referring both to the collection of songs and to people in general.”

Schneider’s simple description belies a songwriter galvanized through two decades fronting outfits in the bustling Austin, TX, music scene, before recently breaking out on his own to indulge in all of his musical sensibilities. His latest effort features pop, blues, and even mambo and dance styles on a couple of live favorites that finally made it to the studio.
Schneider’s long winding road to Lovely Creatures includes getting dropped from two labels, multiple bands, and life as an independent musician, but the industry life has been background to a performer who is as dextrous with his lyrics as with his musicianship.

When home in Austin, Schneider plays every Monday to a standing room only crowd at the Saxon Pub, and sometimes four shows a week at other Austin venues. What else would you expect from a real working class musician like Bob Schneider?
