Bob Schneider
A Perfect Day

Bob Schneider - A Perfect Day

Why is singer-songwriter-guitarist Bob Schneider wearing a band-aid on his forehead on the cover of his album A Perfect Day? That might have something to do with songs on the album like 'Another Bad Idea' (the subject is love), 'Everything You Love' (he sings 'God will destroy/Everything you love/If you live long enough') and 'Penelope Cruz,' where he longs for a love that's out of reach ('I wanna make a baby with Elizabeth Taylor/Around 19 and 57') and reveals: 'I wanna fall in love like I was falling off the face of the earth/I wanna fall forever/But every day/My dreams seem farther and farther away.' It's candid and razor-sharp lyrics like these from his 11th solo album A Perfect Day - produced by Dwight A. Baker - that personify the acclaimed Austin-based artist.

Since his 1999 solo debut, Schneider has won 24 Austin Music Awards, including Best Singer-Songwriter, Best Band, Best Vocals, and Musician of the Year, and earned critical praise plus a strong live following. His last album, 2009's Lovely Creatures featured the hit '40 Dogs (Like Romeo and Juliet).' Schneider's songs have been heard in films including Gunshy, Miss Congeniality, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, 40 Days & 40 Nights, and Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.
