Inspired by the suicide of Anthony Bourdain in the midst of extremely divided United States, Schneider turned inward to reflect on the world around him and what brought him happiness. Described as his “Kurt Vonnegut song,” the narrator of the song who appears lost and confused about his journey through life, still believes in love and maybe that’s the thing that makes all of this worthwhile and bearable.

Referred to as the "King of the Live Music Capital of the World," Schneider is a relentless performer with a loyal and dedicated fan base. His powerful lyrics tackle tough subjects about alienation, drug addiction, and lost romance. In A Room Full of Blood with A Sleeping Tiger, is a 12 song album that takes you on a musical journey through the narrator’s life from boyhood to adulthood.

Austin, Texas-based singer-songwriter and former frontman of The Ulgy Americans and The Scabs, Bob Schneider has become one of the most celebrated musicians in the live music capital. Combined with his scruffy good looks and diverse musicals styles, Schneider's talent has defied genres.

Combining elements of funk, country, rock, and folk with the more traditional singer/songwriter aesthetic, Schneider draws inspiration from the '70s with a modern twist reminiscent of Beck. Schneider has won more than 59 Austin Music Awards including Best Album, Best Songwriter, Best Musician, and Best Male Vocals making him the most decorative artist in Austin music history. Schneider's fan base reaches far beyond the city limits of Austin. He started gaining national recognition when released 2001's Lonelyland, his major-label debut for Universal Records, followed by 2004's I'm Good Now.

Since leaving Universal, Schneider went on to release more award-winning albums under Vanguard and began releasing "side projects" on his label, Shockorama Records. He has released more than a dozen albums to date and doesn't plan on slowing down anytime soon. Schneider and his team will be releasing a new record In A Room Ful. Of Blood with A Sleeping Tiger in 2021 in conjuction with live shows all throughout Texas and more.
