 Corby Schaub: The Biography Corby Schaub is a musician from the Texas Hill Country currently living in Austin. Though he grew up in Fredericksburg, most of his kin were based in Lampasas. Around the age of 7, he started playing the trap set for the family band, Schaub Family and Friends. The band also consisted of Schaub's father, aunts, uncle, and grandfather, or “Dadi”, the leader of the band - Reid Schaub, a longtime musician and luthier that built numerous instruments (particularly acoustic and electric guitars and mandolins) for many people, including his entire family. Corby grew up with many handmade string instruments around but kept his focus on the kit until high school, where he would switch between drums and bass guitar in the jazz band. Through the years, he has learned to play many other stringed instruments built by his grandfather or himself (Reid built him an electric guitar when Corby was 15). At Texas Tech University, he continued on the kit in their jazz band program, while drumming and playing guitar in many other local country and rock & roll bands around Lubbock. In 2002, he moved to Marble Falls, TX, where he became a full-time, working musician - playing live and picking up all the studio work he could with many central Texas artists such as Mike Blakely, Larry Nye, John M. Greenberg, Mike Graham, the McKay Brothers, Adam Odor, Lloyd Maines, and many, many more - and spent time with the family building instruments in Dadi’s shop in Lampasas. In 2005, Schaub met Ryan Bingham and Matthew “PAW PAW” Smith, and they played shows around Texas until moving to Los Angeles the next year; from ‘05 to ‘11, Corby was a member of Ryan Bingham and the Dead Horses. While Bingham was signed to Lost Highway Records, the band recorded the albums “Mescalito” and “Roadhouse Sun” (2007 and 2009, respectively; both produced by Marc Ford) and also “Junky Star” (2010; produced by T-Bone Burnett), played the Tonight Show with Jay Leno (twice), the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and, in 2008, performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival and Austin City Limits, the latter including a cameo appearance by Dadi. In 2009, the band were featured in the Academy Award-winning feature film “Crazy Heart”, as well as its Grammy Award-winning soundtrack. In 2012, Schaub released his first solo album, the self-produced “Handmade”, along with the previously unreleased EPs “CCS IV” and “CCS V”, and he currently tours with Walt Wilkins & the Mystiqueros and works as a studio musician and producer.--
