Amidst a city known for its hard rock and rap, Detroit based Schaeffer puts their melodic driven style on display with their debut album “No Ordinary People.” Primarily comprised of three brothers, Bryan, Nolan, and Daniel Rossi, Schaeffer has an infectious sound that is sweeping the through Midwest. From the opening chords of ‘Alive’ to the Unsigned Top Ten hit ‘Stay’, Schaeffer quickly separates themselves from so many of the typical unsigned bands in music today. Also noteworthy is the track ‘Fall Apart’ which shows tight production with layered guitars, and impressive arrangements. Perhaps this bands biggest strength is the honesty in their songwriting. A forgotten art by so many in music today, Schaeffer’s lyrics are always honest and heart felt. Clearly, Schaeffer is a band that is still developing their sound, but there’s no doubt they will very soon be attracting the attention of major labels.
