Roy Schneider is an acoustic roots singer-songwriter with a soulful, down-home Americana sound. He has performed throughout the U.S. and Europe since ending his nationally syndicated comic strip, “The Humble Stumble,” in 2008. Twice a finalist in the prestigious Kerrville Grassy Hill New Folk Competition, Schneider also was selected to perform in the Suzi Wollenberg Folk DJ Showcase during the 2012 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) Conference. 

Walls That Talk, his fourth studio release, debuted at #3 on the Folk DJ Chart in the fall of 2012 and has been added to Pandora radio. Music critics have likened Schneider’s sound to that of some of his musical heroes -- Lowell George (Little Feat), Levon Helm, John Hiatt, Leon Russell and Darrell Scott.  



What the critics are saying:

"A heavy dose of ramblin’ Americana, complete with believable folk delivery and splattered with old-timey charm, Roy Schneider’s music is rooted in way that ties him to the outlaw singers of the past — the part where there is no latching onto someone else’s bootstraps, just playing what you believe." 
~Scott Recker, eCurrent.com 

"Damn I love this album! [Erleichda] is a stellar example of good Americana." 
~ Minor 7th 

"......like the best Americana should be, a compelling mix of narrative and instrumental beauty." 
~ Flyinshoes Review 

"While the world is littered with people toting acoustic guitars and second-hand Hallmark card verses masquerading as insights, Schneider is a cut above the hordes... Sometimes he sounds like he's auditioning for Little Feat (he'd get in, too), sometimes he's light and jazzy and sometimes he's a proper acoustic rocker. All the time he's interesting, with the changes of pace keeping the listener on their toes, not least in wondering how he manages to be good at it all." 
~Maverick Magazine, UK
