Artist's Biography:


 Two Schmitts and a Cabela, that's how it all started. Two brothers and their best friend looking to rock the world. Like most kids with dreams of fame and fortune, all they really wanted to do was jam out with their buddies. Like all who came before them, they tried everything they could think of to get into the music business.
This passion to play and sing and share their songs found them playing out anywhere someone with a building and electricity would let them...school dances, a garage, backyard parties, weddings, and more. Almost immediately, this young trio of "brotheres" started writing and recording original songs. Oddly enough, when playing out they found that they really preferred playing their originals instead of covers, and they were connecting with their audiences.
Well-rehearsed and armed with some studio recordings of their original songs, they started sending out packages to anyone who would listen. Very quickly, they determined that the music business was not as much fun as they thought it would be. However, their God given gifts for creating and sharing original music that was important to them grew stronger.
Throughout the years, all three members have learned to play multiple instruments, honed their vocal chops, and refined their songwriting. Their musical goal has always been and will continue to be to write, record, and share with the world their songs of family, faith, and God. Fortunately, with the advancement of technology, home studios, and the internet, the trio have found a way to record and release 10 albums to date.
Constant students of the business side of music, Cabela & Schmitt continue to find new and different ways to market and promote their music to their ever-growing legion of loyal fans around the world.
Our music is really a snapshot of our life. The birth of a song happens with just accumulating random thoughts on how life comes and how you react to it. So, the thoughts are there, scattered, no rhymes, no order, just like anybody can have. We always have music in our hearts/heads, and all we do is learn what we hear. The melodies start playing, and suddenly those random thoughts and phrases begin to fall into place, like they belong. Most people call that songwriting, but we don't take that credit for ourselves. We believe we've been given messages that need to be shared.
Our love for making music has been mostly a lifelong venture. These sounds come to life in our hearts and minds and they are gifts we have been given to be able to bring these songs to life in our recordings. It's the most satisfying thing when we get feedback from some of our fans who have been touched by the music. That is so rewarding.
We are inspired by so many artists, not only by their music, but in some cases their lives and examples.
We are releasing and promoting music non-stop and our hope is that it will touch our audience in a positive way and help them ponder their life situation and receive, believe and appreciate the power of love.
We want to thank all our fans for their great support.
Cabela & Schmitt are: Rich Cabela (guitar, keyboards), Wayne Schmitt (guitar, keyboards), and Tom Schmitt (bass guitar, keyboards).
A MESSAGE FROM CABELA & SCHMITT
We are a trio of friends who have been collaborating for over 40 years. We come from the heart of the United States and humble beginnings. Our only goal as a group at this stage in our lives is to share with others what we have so freely and abundantly been given.
Every person has the God-given ability to choose how they want to view the world. We are all given a voice, in some way or another, to communicate how we see and experience the world. It is each person's choice how and when to use that voice. Cabela & Schmitt have chosen to expose our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings in the best way we can....through a song. We have always wanted to share our music without giving up this wonderful life we've been given, and we are so very happy and excited to be able to share with you!
We want to express how grateful we are that you have taken the time to listen to one or more of our songs. We hope they have touched you in one way or another.

Album: Golden Links


Cabela and Schmitt album notes for Golden Links

Some things old, and some things new...Golden Links is a compilation of Cabela and Schmitt original songs from yesterday and today. As fans of music, we all tie our memories with a song, to an era, an event, or even another person. These songs are links to our past. Even a new song can spark a memory from years gone by. So with these experiences in mind, the name Golden Links seemed to us a perfect fit for the album name. Golden as in ‘unforgettable’. The album art is a keyboard image, golden notes, and a treble clef to reference the rare and powerful value of the right melody in a song to connect us as listeners to something or someone significant.
In highlighting some of the music on the album, the new songs like In Our Ways and What’s Inside, take us on a trip back to visit our early days of creating music, and some of the reasons we stayed on this crazy journey.
Land of Love invites you all to join us on this trip. We share our personal and worldly feelings about right and wrong in Lay Down the Law. We acknowledge where our faith and the greatest love comes from in You’re With Me and Into the Heart. Hey Can You See is a song from several years back that we re-recorded for this album.
One of our hopes for you as a listener, is that you will hear something in this music that has a significance for you. We love music that can deliver multiple messages...something a little different for each and every person that listens.
