Raised in a family of musicians, he found a love for his family trade at an early age. His father, the pianist, and his mother, the composer, instilled a musically sound creative problem solving mindset.
Though, stylistically Schilb similar to an unplugged rock band, he models his approach to songwriting with the infamous four-note opening theme of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.
Believing that a song does not necessarily need to be cluttered with fancy instrumental work, nor does it require deep, thought provoking metaphor, Schilb believes that a song must be felt, rather than heard. Each song he writes incorporates both the creative values of his family and the struggles of waning deafness. A concise and warm, yet raw vigor can be heard in each song.
