About the Album

“On the album, Schneider and Kim Mayfield, his wife and full-time performing partner, dance with elements of authentic folk, country, blues and rock as if they’ve been in love with them all their lives, which is probably true. Enlisting Blaze Foley’s old musical partner Gurf Morlix for help, Schneider and Mayfield cover Foley’s classic “Election Day” with rough passion, but the beautifully rendered “If I Die Tomorrow” and “Poison Arrow” swoon in their arms. All who cry out for salvation from Reckless Saints might experience the same effect.”

Peter Lindblad - Elmore Magazine


“[Reckless Saints, the album] It all amounts to an Americana gem that fans of real pure mountain-stream country will love.”

Michael Greenblatt - The Aquarian


“This husband and wife team runs the gamut from engaging acoustic folk to driving bluesy tunes, with hints of twang sprinkled in. The album was recorded in Schneider’s studio in Florida and mastered in Austin by acclaimed producer, songwriter and engineer Mark Hallman (Carole King, Ani DiFrance and Eliza Gilkyson) who has played with and heard countless artists. He says, “This truly is a wonderful record. It is one of the finest singer/songwriter records to come across my mastering desk in a long time.” The ringing impression from this offering is the seamless blending of so many forms of roots music combined with meaningful and often insightful lyrics. It works beautifully.”
