ROY SCHNEIDER AND KIM MAYFIELD: Troubadour and formerly syndicated cartoonist Roy Schneider has developed a devoted fan base for his particular flavor of Americana music since 2008, through international radio airplay and consistent touring with life-and-stage partner Kim Mayfield. Playfully dubbed “Blue-Twangled Folk ‘n’ Roll” in a 2014 No Depression interview, Schneider & Mayfield have brought their musical blend of the gritty, fun, soulful and sweet to delighted audiences across the USA. From ballads and dirges to grooves and hollerin’ rockers, from intimate concerts and clubs to festival stages, this multitalented duo clocks up thousands of miles annually from their home base in Fort Myers, Florida, toting an ever-evolving array of instruments wherever they are needed. With Schneider on guitar (or dobro, mandolin or banjo), harmonica, kick drum and vocals, Mayfield on mandolin (or guitar, ukulele or percussion) and vocals, their sound does not suffer for lack of bandmates.
Schneider & Mayfield are excited to release their long-anticipated first official Duo album, Reckless Saints. It will be the first to feature original compositions by Mayfield and includes some wonderful guest artists. Schneider’s early and current works can be heard on Pandora, Spotify, iTunes/Apple Music, etc. in addition to public and college radio stations everywhere.
Schneider’s songs have earned praise in the Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Competition (TX), Telluride Blues & Brews Acoustic Blues competition (CO), and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist showcase (NY). The duo has performed official showcases at Folk Alliance conferences in New York, Austin TX and Asheville NC. Other notable venues include Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, Northern England’s MAD Fest, and season 5 of NBC’s The Voice. Schneider has raised over $20k through fan funding to produce and successfully promote 2012’s Walls That Talk and 2015’s Ten from the Pen. Both have received generous airplay and accolades from an impressive list of respected reviewers, including No Depression and UK's Maverick magazine.
Also a gifted accompanist, Schneider has performed onstage with the talents of John McEuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Joe Craven (Garcia/Grisman), Tom Paxton, Stevie Coyle (The Waybacks), Freebo, Buddy Mondlock, Gove Scrivenor and many others.
Mark "Markus" Carufel has lived in Tampa since 1980.
His songs explore the human condition from depression to spiritual enlightenment with lots of love songs in between. Markus sings his perspective on life grateful for the experience of it.
