Album Notes
John Schmitt was born and raised in Buffalo, NY, and his songs are a direct reflection of his experiences growing up there. His simple, honest approach tells stories that hit at the heart of American life. Blending a folk-meets-soul style to go along with thoughtful lyrics and images, John sings about his life in real terms. His album "Ophelia," released in 11/2010, is his loftiest work to date. Produced by Caleb Hawley, we see on "Ophelia" just how life in the city has affected Schmitt, now a resident of Brooklyn, as he takes us along for many stories of life, love, loss, and coffee consumption.

Not to be missed!
This album will make you think and will make you smile.

Each song is beautifully realized on every level – from vivid imagery and compelling lyrics to gorgeous arrangements and original phrasing. When John Schmitt sings – as he does so brilliantly – he draws you in and tells a story that is at once deeply personal and completely familiar.

I can’t wait for the next album from this extraordinary new artist!!!
