Combining soulful vocals, driving guitar, and hypnotic rhythms, Northern Virginia based rock trio, Schreiner, is a truly unique experience. After nearly two decades of distinguished work in music performance, production, pedagogy, and composition, frontman and multi-instrument virtuoso John Schreiner along with bassist Jay Glaspy started their work together in late 2017. Shortly after, they immersed themselves in the writing of their upcoming debut album: Kingdom From. 

Recorded with veteran producer and engineer Ben Green (Guitarist, Fairweather), at his newly renovated gem, Ivakota Studio in Washington D.C., the 10-song project seamlessly fuses a broad range of stylistic disciplines with powerful, personal subject material. The combined wealth of technical mastery, rich life-experiences, and weatherworn maturity represented in the effort is both moving and unmissable. 

With the release of their debut album rapidly approaching, Schreiner continues to prove themselves as one of the Mid-Atlantic region's premier live acts, every time they touch the stage.
