Paul Schneider is a singer/songwriter who grew up in Riverside, CA. Under the Creem magazine spell of his older sister, he listened to The Clash, Bowie, The Smiths, Elvis Costello, Hank Williams, and The Jam. His band, Rivington, had a short, brutish stint on Epic Records in the early 00s and made the record “Happy on A Sliding Scale” with producer, Ted Nicely (Fugazi, Shutter to Think). Two solo releases, “Escape Velocity” and “Forever Debts”, received great reviews and hooked a few loyal fans (at least two). He plays regularly with the Dexter Lake Club Band, works at WNYC as an engineer/sound designer, and lives in New Jersey with his family. He is currently releasing new songs from an album in progress.
