The Snyder Family Band

The Snyder Family Band from Lexington, NC, performs a blend of family friendly music that appeals to all ages and audiences. What the listener will find exciting about a Snyder Family Band show is how these young musicians take from multiple genres and create a unique sound that includes not only bluegrass, but also southern rock, blues, Texas swing, and newgrass.

In August of 2014, the Snyder Family Band signed with Mountain Home Music, a division of Crossroads Entertainment. A new project is underway with a release date set for March 2015, and it will include plenty of original tunes written by Zeb and Samantha.

Beginning in classical violin lessons at age three, Samantha, now 16, is an award-winning fiddler as well as a top-notch singer and songwriter. She was selected as fiddler and lead vocalist for the 2013 Youth All-Star Bluegrass Band that performed at the 2013 IBMA World of Bluegrass Awards Show held in Raleigh, NC. Her songwriting and creativity are a big part of the Snyder Family Band sound. She occasionally plays guitar and mandolin during a performance as well. Whether fiddling or singing, Samantha creates a warm and energetic feel on stage that demonstrates her true enjoyment for the music.

Zeb, now 19, also began music lessons early in life with classical guitar training at age seven. After amassing multiple guitar championships as a youth he turned his focus to performing, recording, and writing. Zeb plays mostly with a flat pick but also incorporates various guitar picking techniques such as finger style, thumb picking, and slide. He is also an accomplished mandolin player. Grammy Award Winning Adam Steffey asked Zeb to play guitar on his solo project New Primitive. Zeb also received nominations for the IBMA Momentum Awards for Instrumentalist in 2013 and 2014.

Supporting these gifted young musicians, their dad, Bud, holds down a rock solid upright bass rhythm. His ability to adapt to the multiple genres that influence the band is a key ingredient of the trio’s signature sound.

While Zeb and Samantha take turns sharing lead and harmony vocals, occasionally Laine, mom of the family, joins the duo on stage to create three-part harmony. And last, but not least, there are even appearances by Owen, the youngest Snyder.  He enjoys a short visit to the spotlight to sing a song or play a tune on his guitar, a part of the show not to be missed.
