Oregon-raised and Brooklyn-based, Libbie Schrader is a singer/songwriter with a passionate alt-pop/rock style. Libbie was the first winner of the Pantene Pro-Voice competition, beating out over 1,200 other female-fronted acts when she opened for Jewel at SummerStage in New York's Central Park. Prizes included a nationwide club tour at venues including the House of Blues in New Orleans and the Roxy in Los Angeles, as well as a demo deal with Atlantic Records.

Libbie received a coveted MySpace feature in 2006, and she also appeared on the 2006 Gilmore Girls season finale performing her song "Sweet When You Wanna Be." Her song "Wish You Were the Woman" was a semi-finalist in the 2007 International Songwriting Competition. Libbie's songs are featured regularly in a wide variety of MTV shows.
