Maria Schneider grew up in rural Minnesota, close to the land — and her music is influenced by a vision of beauty grounded in nature. Schneider knows, deeply, winter wind on the prairie, the whistle of birdsong. She feels joy in an updraft, appreciates beauty in bleakness.
Schneider knows what it is to stand at the spot where four cornfields meet in one place — and to feel something substantial. It shows in her music. It’s alive in her music.
