It's wonderful when whole great avenues are blocked off for you by giants because you have to find your own little corner.-Carl Andre. 

Thanks for joining me in my little corner.

You've found the official page of eclectic singer/songwriter Johnny Schaefer. I've been singing my whole life and wrote my first song at the age of four. I have a BA in voice and composition from Cal State University, Fullerton. My latest release fulfills a lifelong dream of singing with GRAMMY® Award-Winning singer-songwriter and American Songbook Hall of Fame New Standard Award Winner, Melissa Manchester. I have also sung backup for Ms. Manchester, Josh Groban, Sarah Brightman, Pete Townshend, Billy Idol, Diahann Carroll and others. I  was a semi-finalist in four categories in the UK Songwriting Contest in 2020 and just learned that I'm a Semi-finalist in two categories in 2021. I don't try to sound like anyone else and I let each song tell me the style it wants to be, so you will hear me using a full palette of musical colors. On this site you can listen to and purchase my music, read lyrics and stories behind the songs, watch videos, sign up for info on new releases, and comment. Sign the guestbook and let me know where you're from! My Christmas album From Here to Nativity was funded, in part, by wonderful fans and is available worldwide on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, Deezer, and many other online retailers and streaming services. CDs are also available. My singles are digital releases, only.  I'm so glad you are here. Thanks for supporting Indie Music.
