  • Hailing from Victoria, Texas, Schaefer began playing guitar at a young age and never looked back. His first touring experience came with Micky & the Motorcars in 2011, and eventually led to stints with Parker McCollum, The Black Lillies, and now as the lead guitarist for Shane Smith & the Saints.

    Schaefer draws influences from classic and modern rock, guitar virtuosos such as Eric Johnson, and even pop music, which translates to a classic guitar-driven twist on modern arrangements. His guitar playing rivals even the most seasoned players and this album showcases that talent. The proficiency and the tone is like a Joe Walsh riff blending with John Mayer’s smooth solo style. Every note, every verse, every second of music is thought out and very real. Any person can learn guitar, but Schaefer sets himself apart by being able to not only lyrically tell a story, but by being able to make you feel the emotions behind every note.
