The 7-song EP, Faith, the Poor and Politics, released in 2012, was recorded in Michigan shortly before he relocated to Atlanta, GA. The EP was the subject of a post on the blog of Sojourners Magazine in the fall of 2012. Schicker made use of the popular crowd-funding platform, Indiegogo, to fund the duplication and distribution of Faith, the Poor and Politics.
Schicker is currently focusing his efforts on writing and releasing independent recordings such as the Young Lovers EP (2018). He also is pursuing a future with the acoustic act, A Stranger and a Friend, with song-writing partner, Lindsay Allward-Theimer and violinist, Catherine Espinosa. The group released their first EP in early 2019 with the next set for mid-2020.
