Carrie Schneider is a multi-instrumentalist musician from Minnesota known for her dark yet delicate and unique vocal style. Her debut EP, “FLOWERBED” highlights infectious indie guitar riffs surrounded by alt-country ambiance.
She started writing music at the age of 12. With a dual cassette deck and a cheap microphone she discovered her passion for building songs by overlapping any sound she could make with acoustic and electric guitars, a snare drum, and household items. Just your average Lo-Fi-Pre-Teen.
As a teenager, her parents surprised her with studio time at Rockhouse Productions – owned and operated by Bobby, Jeff, and Tommy Vee in Saint Joseph, MN. There she recorded her original songs with sound engineer Jeff Engholm, later taking on an internship, working with artists such as Teague Alexey, Nicholas David Mrozinski of “The Voice”, Paul Spring, Mitchell Adam Johnson, Courtney McClean and The Dirty Curls and many others. When everyone else went home at night, she stayed for hours, hopping up and down the stairs leading from the control room to the performance booths. This is when she developed her signature sound and went head-first into her dream of producing and performing music.
At 19, Schneider moved to Chicago to tour with the indie-rock group Lindberg. In 2009, she returned to Minnesota where she can now be found performing in various cities across the state promoting her original material, including songs off her debut EP “FLOWERBED”, released in early 2018.
