His duos, trios, and quartets have played such popular Minnesota venues the 318 Cafe, Black Dog, and Jazz Central. With fellow guitarist Adam Astrup, Schmid co-led ensembles at the 2016 Winter, Twin Cities, and Iowa City Jazz Festivals, and over nights in March 2017, he debuted his original music in New York City. Now pursuing a degree in Physics at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Schmid also studies with Cleveland Institute of Music faculty Don Better.
