Here’s a bit about the musicians
Brian Smalley
Having played guitar all his life, Brian has developed some skill on the git-box, and possessing a creative (and somewhat disturbed) imagination, he is a master storyteller and a riveting performer who just happens to have extraordinary guitar skills! Ya gotta hear it to believe it. www.briansmalley.com
Bill Metts:
Bill Metts started playing guitar during the Country Blues revival of the 60s and fell in love with the art of finger-style guitar He has been composing songs from the writings of people dealing with great emotional trauma in order to help them heal through the power inherent in music and has developed a repertoire of his own original songs written from the heart. He has performed at the prestigious Mississippi John Hurt Blues Festival, the world famous “Ground Zero” in Clarksdale Mississippi and in the BMI sponsored Island Hopper Songwriter Festival in Fort Myers Florida.
Roy Schneider:
Founding member of the Americana duo Reckless Saints, Roy Schneider, has been performing his original music for the past two decades. His songs have thrice made him a Kerrville NewFolk finalist, and in 2013 a contestant on NBC’s The Voice. No Depression described Schneider as ‘a songwriter in the grandest tradition of Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, Guy Clark and Lyle Lovett, but with a voice, songwriting skill, stagecraft, and instrumental talent all his own.’ He is currently at work on a new Reckless Saints recording
