Shem VonSchroeck


In the music world, most musicians focus on one instrument….some two, some rarely play three, and others are unique…like Shem Von Schroeck…who, on his last solo album Son of Arthur, played bass, guitar, piano, drums, percussion, bodhran, and also sang lead and background vocals. Although capable of performing as a multi-instrumentalist, his career has focused on being a first call bassist and vocalist. This has allowed him to make his mark as a front man, singing and playing bass for the band Ambrosia, as sideman for Kenny Loggins and many other artists. He’s a singer’s singer…blessed with a vocal range and precision that any singer would covet, after all, this tenor has perfect pitch. His career has taken him full circle, from studying formally at the Manhattan School of Music, to classical, to an amazing career in rock and pop, and now, there’s a new twist with Shem’s career…and it involves rekindling his passion for opera. Inside MusiCast is pleased to welcome the multi-faceted Shem Von Schroeck.
