SCHMAVE is the indie / lo-fi / jazz project of Avery John, based out of the thriving music scene of New Paltz, NY.
In Avery's New Paltz bedroom, there is a small path weaving in between music equipment, leading to the recording gear and a blanket-lined closet that serves as makeshift vocal recording booth. The debut album, Painted Post, is filled with references to books, cryptic and relatable personal experiences, and stream-of-consciousness thoughts that often reflect indecisiveness.
Played live by Avery John, Matt Dowden, Kenny Hauptman, Eli Frank, Rob Cosentino! - and sometimes Brett Bivona, Jared Nelson, and Brandon Bera.
