Schumacher's music embraces a wide range of musical styles - a true blend of Progressive Rock, Celtic, and classical music arrangements.
We try to make people feel, to capture and reflect the emotion of people and to help them as their lives are touched by both good and bad. Our success is not our sales, but the comments listeners leave about how a song touched their hearts.
Check out "And I love her anyway" or "The Buffalo Dance" for a snapshot of the bands acoustic-progressive work.
I used to with various bands, blues duos etc. These days it is really more of a studio project. There were a lot of special moments, but one of my favorites was playing at a club and Edwyn Starr walked in, had a listen and a beer with us after the show.
Really anything progressiv and creative no matter which style. For example, Jethro Tull, Marillion,Pink Floyd but also Blues, Jazz and some old school Rock like Free etc. Didn't shy away from Metal or hardcore punk either.
I work with both real instruments (piano, organ, guitars, mandolin, etc.)as well as a multitude of synthesizers and soft synths, predominantly cause I cannot fit an entire symphonic orchestra in my basement.
