After the release of the debut EP Wannabe in August 2016, his follow up EP 17 was released in October of the same year, landing at #3 on the iTunes Country Album Charts. In February, he premiered the music video for his song "You Heard Wrong" with major music outlet Billboard, who called him "country music's next rising star." Schneider recently released his latest EP Spotlight’s On You in April, and the five-song album hit the #1 spot on the iTunes Country Album Charts. He spent the summer on the road, selling out dates on his own headlining tour, and released single "How Does It Sound" in July of 2017, which has already accumulated nearly 3 million streams on Spotify.
In November of 2017, Schneider signed with Interscope Records as the label's first direct country signing - coinciding with the release of his new single, "No Problem". He's currently on tour as direct support for Chris Lane's Take Back Home Tour and Granger Smith's Don't Tread On Me Tour.
With a lot in the works, Schneider’s focus remains the importance of the fan. “At the end of the day, I’m nothing without my fans. When I write, I’m thinking, ‘how is this song going to sing live, and how will the audience react and identify?’ What I do, most importantly, is for my fans. My job is to connect and show them a good time.” It seems Schneider’s off to a great start in doing just that.
At the age of three, he stood on a stool in front of his local church congregation and sang "Jesus Loves Me." Little did he know a passion for music was born inside him that day that continues to grow.
At the age of ten, he earned the title of "CES Idol" at Cook Elementary School which was a spin-off of American Idol. The contestants sang weekly, and the votes of the school body was the process of elimination. For his final performance, he sang "God Bless the USA" for a crowd of approximately 1,400 students. He sang at local talent shows, fund-raising events, and anywhere else that needed entertainment.
As his teenage years began to unfold, he started playing guitar and became the drummer for the adult choir at the same church where he made his first debut. Also, he was a soloist for his high school chorus all four years where he sang many genres of music.
During his high school years, Jordan would drive out to a field, sit on the tailgate of his truck with a guitar, and write his songs. They are the real life adventures of a country boy in his country town.
And now a word from the artist himself:
First and foremost, I would like to thank the LORD for giving me the ability to sing. It's always been a dream of mine to release my own music, and to see it happen is an unbelievable blessing. I would like to recognize Gary DiBenedetto, Steve Cummings, Jason Roller, Julie Gandy, and Rick Lipscomb. It was their incredible work, along with the support of my family and friends, that made this project possible. Thank you for purchasing the Dust in the Tail Lights EP. I hope you will relate to it, share it, and most of all, enjoy it. - Jordan Rowe
