Album Notes
Originally from Saint Louis, Missouri, John was influenced early on by that town\'s rhythm and blues and his Oklahoma mother’s singing. This funky start was drastically tempered by a nine-year stint in a Catholic seminary where silence and Gregorian chant were his daily bread. After leaving the brotherhood, and armed only with his vow of poverty, John moved to New England and pursued the path of an itinerant musician, playing in sundry bands and bad barrooms. It was during this time, he realized, that his audience could not understand Latin.

Winner of both the 2003 Boston Folk Festival Songwriting Contest and the 2006 Rose Garden Coffeehouse Song Contest, John has also been a finalist in many other song contests.

His CD Memory Train was CD of the Week on Chicago’s WFMT’s Midnight Special.

John lives in Jaffrey, NH & Boothbay Harbor, ME with his wife, Jane and 2 cats, Godzilla & Iko.

The Cd is terrific (nice and round)as is the music that is found on it. # 9, #10. #11 especially good.
I like the singer's head (nicely round).

Two-Step Man is Another Winner
After listening to John's "Memory Train," which I had to share with my entire family, I couldn't wait for his next effort. And I wasn't disappointed! There's such an intimacy in his songs. I love his sense of place and time. And his sense of humor too.

Two-Step Man
It is always nice to receive another fine album from a fellow bald-headed former seminarian--a dieing breed thanks to their advanced age, chronic optimism, life-long problems with authority and two left feet that keeps them perpetually \"Two-Steps\" behind. John Schindler gives hope to all of us—ex-seminarians and those who\'s knees creak from high school football and not from years of wooden kneelers --that it\'s never too late to start our own melody.
