After 6 high-intensity years of writing, recording, and touring within the vibrant music scene of the southeastern United States, northern Virginia native John Schreiner is happy to announce his return to the Washington D.C. area. At just 29 years old, John’s professional experience includes an earned degree in Vocal Music Performance (Lee University), three studio albums of original tunes, two lead opera roles, first-place finishes in numerous national music competitions, commercial recording work, as well as thousands of exciting performances that have taken him across most of the United States and as far as Bolivia, Canada, Mexico, The United Kingdom, and The British Virgin Islands.

But for John, music has little to do with pedigree and everything to do with passion. In his own words: “I started singing and writing songs because, plain and simple, I needed to say what was in my heart. I count music among the most profound gifts of my life, and I consider the sharing of that gift the call UPON my life”. In 2017, John formed his band Schreiner along with Washington DC bassist Jay Glaspy and other veterans from the DMV music scene and has resulted in a unique upcoming debut album in lat 2018. The 10-song album was recorded at Ivakota Studios in DC with engineer/producer Ben Green. Now, John’s passion for music has grown far beyond just personal aspirations. While he continues his own work as an artist, he looks forward to uncovering and distilling the unique talents and passions in the DMV music scene.
