For indie-folk musician J. Alan Schneider, the universal struggle for control has served as both a cause of anxiety and, on his upcoming EP, “On Precipice,” an inspiration. The songs on the EP, which will be released Oct. 27, “center on the foggy fact that we, as people, need to move through life sacrificing our personal control, and respecting the resulting growth in ourselves,” as Schneider explains it.
You can hear the debut of the EP single, the autumnal and easy-flowing “The State Line” below.
Like his 2016 debut “Lo & Behold,” Schneider recorded “On Precipice” in his apartment in Astoria, Queens, in New York City. Tory Mance added guitar on “The State Line.”
We first introduced you to Schneider in 2016 when he was selected as a Highway 81 Revisited On The Rise artist.
Schneider will perform an EP-release show at a time and location to be announced.
