About:

Jes Schneider is a singer/songwriter, guitarist, and producer from Houston, Texas. Through songs that resonate from his soul, Jes reveals his passion, love, and desire for music through his self written tunes combining elements of rock, blues, country, and folk with his powerful vocals.

Born in 1991 at Spring Branch Hospital in Houston, Texas, Jes became immediately drawn to the art of music and the different ways each musical artists could choose to express themself. At the age of 5, Jes relocated with his mother to Calabasas, California and became influenced early on by artists like the hard hitting Metallica, the smooth and poppy Goo Goo Dolls; as well as guitar legends such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carlos Santana, and the up and coming John Mayer. After watching his friends play in the school band at Oaks Christian Middle School, Jes decided to use his birthday money and purchase his first guitar at the age of 11. Shortly following his guitar purchase, Jes and his mother relocated back to his hometown of Houston where he decided to join the middle school chapel band at Clay Road Baptist.

Jes formed his first band in 2010 at the University of Houston with his college roommate, Joseph Reynolds, under the name Jester’s Reign (later renamed Kid Colt Outlaw). After about a year and a half the band split up and Jes began pursuing a solo career. In 2012, Jes wrote his first solo song, Alabama Running. “That’s the song that really changed everything for me, it was a completely new direction of music and style that represented myself, my energy, and my values.” says Jes. From there, Jes struggled to find his way, bouncing around and emerging himself here and there, but he felt like he had very little connection and eventually moved from town to town trying to find his artistic footing.
