Schooner is band that plays ramshackle pop and experiments with simple song structures from their home in Durham, NC. The line-up includes Reid Johnson (songwriter, vocals, guitar), Nick Jaeger (bass, vocals), and Joshua Carpenter (drums), but has included a rotating cast of musicians on past releases. They have released three recordings under Pox World Empire based in Durham, NC; You Forget About Your Heart, the unconventional (Pox's collaborative 3 x 4 release), and Rocky P. EP, as well as appearing on Pox's Compulation 1 sampler. Their second full length Hold on Too Tight was released by 54º40' or Fight!, and was followed up with the EP "Duck Kee Sessions," which can be found exclusively on, with all of the proceeds going to cancer research. Schooner's new LP "Neighborhood Veins," will be released on September 24, 2013 by PotLuck.
