For a decade, Simone Schmidt has been writing new life into and around the Folk, Country and Rock songs.
Critically outspoken , and largely evading the branding of the music industry proper by working under several aliases, Schmidt has been chastised for her splintered discography. Schmidt has six LP's to her writing credit, as the front person and songwriter for celebrated country act One Hundred Dollars (2007-11), the psych rock unit The Highest Order (2011-ongoing), and her solo work as Fiver (2012 - on). Her collaborators are weird and wide ranging, from Fucked Up, to the inimitable USGirls, and Old Time and Bluegrass veteran Chris Coole. Schmidt has produced original works for film (World Famous Gopher Hole Museum, Land of Destiny) and appears as a guest vocalist a number of records, including Doug Paisley, Tasseomancy and Shotgun Jimmie.
Her latest album Audible Songs From Rockwood is a series of eleven fictional field recordings, gathered from case files of patients at the Rockwood Asylum for the Criminally Insane between 1854-1881. Unfortunately you can't stream the 30 pages of liner notes that accompany it, but you can buy them here: http://ideefixerecords.com/if016.html#!/
