Part dustbowl troubadour, part poet, and part mad-scientist, its been 13 records, 4 cars, 11 flat tires, 113 broken strings, one guitar, 6 girlfriends, thousands of miles, two tours of ireland, one tour of eastern europe, one broken elbow, one black eye, and hundreds and hundreds of songs since he first took to the stage nearly ten years ago. Constantly and fearlessly pushing the boundaries of what a solo singer-songwriter should and could be. But at the heart of it all, is the songs. Songs that can be deeply emotional, or irreverent, political, humorous, always passionate. Songs that stick to you, that sleep with you til' next winter, hit you in the gut and stick in your head, songs that remind us there is still honest and important music bieng made, and its only a matter of time before someone notices. Releasing a minimum of one record a year since 1999, j. schnitt has an insatiable appetite, devotion, and love for creating. His latest release is Make A Joyful Noise. 2010 - MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE ; 2009 - STAY YOUNGER ; 2008 - SPEAKING ESPERANTO ; 2008 - A ROOM WITH TWO GRAVITIES ; 2007 - 2 AM RADIO ; 2007 - FROM A THIRD STORY WINDOW ; 2006 - RADIO MYSTERY THEATER ; 2005 - BANG ; 2005 - BARNSTORMER ; 2003 - THE QUIVER AND THE QUAKE ; 2000 - spotlight ; 1999 - sleeper in the vally
