Join us for a great night of music with Jack Schneider & Jamie McDell!
Jamie McDell is a New Zealand musician and singer-songwriter. She was discovered at the age of 16 by EMI Music New Zealand after sending them a demo tape of her acoustic original music. Prior to being signed by a major record label, McDell used various social media outlets to gain exposure, posting YouTube videos – including original songs and cover songs, Twitter and Facebook to get her music out to the masses.
She released her debut single, “You’ll Never Take That Away”, on 20 February 2012, which was certified Gold in New Zealand. Following the success of her debut single, McDell released her EP, All That I Wanted – Acoustic EP, on 4 May 2012. Her second single, “Rewind” was released on 13 June 2012. McDell’s debut studio album, Six Strings and a Sailboat, was released 16 November 2012 and was certified Gold in New Zealand.
Ask Me Anything, McDell’s second studio album, was released 27 March 2015.
McDell’s third studio album, Extraordinary Girl, was released on 4 May 2018, independently released and recorded at House of Blues, Studio D, Nashville Tennessee. The album featured various country musicians such as Kasey Chambers, Bill Chambers and Tami Neilson.
Born in New York and raised in Georgia, Jack Schneider began making trips to Gruhn Guitars in Nashville when he was in high school, seeking to quench his insatiable thirst for knowledge of fretted instruments. Despite attending university in New York, he spent most school breaks and long weekends in Music City, working summers at Gruhn’s; it was there that he met and befriended Vince Gill, among other musical heroes. With one foot in New York and one in Nashville, Jack expanded his network as both a session player and an artist in both cities, gracing the stages of The Bitter End and The Bluebird Cafe with equal character and charm.
Since graduating from NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music in 2019, Jack has added significantly to his laundry list of accomplishments: he’s toured with Vince Gill as both guitar tech and player, produced records for multiple up-and-coming Nashville artists (recorded to tape, of course), released his first single to critical acclaim, played the Grand Ole Opry, and delivered a series of “vanishing albums:” full-length records accessible for a week at a time each during the pandemic, after which they were removed from streaming services and unavailable for physical purchase. Most recently, Jack recorded his debut non-vanishing record with the likes of David Rawlings, Vince Gill, Stewart Duncan, and Dennis Crouch. With a reverence for folk music and an instrumental prowess that captivates audiences everywhere, Jack Schneider is a sharp answer to the ever-urgent question of modern day artistic authenticity.
