Libbie Schrader

Elizabeth Brooke Schrader, professionally known as Libbie Schrader, is an award-winning singer-songwriter based in New York City.

Schrader grew up in Portland, Oregon and moved to California to attend Pomona College, from which she graduated in 2001. That same year, Schrader's group, The Wash, won the inaugural Pantene Pro-Voice Competition. In 2002, Schrader's former group Think of England was chosen to be a part of Jewel's Soul City Café program, and opened three shows on her This Way tour.

After Schrader went solo, she was a featured artist on MySpace in early 2006, and appeared in the Gilmore Girls episode "Partings" later that year. Schrader moved to New York City in 2008, and in 2010 she launched a fan-funded campaign to record her album "Magdalene." The album's title track led to Schrader doing research about Mary Magdalene in the Gospel of John, and two master's degrees in theology from General Theological Seminary. Schrader's first Master's thesis, "Was Martha of Bethany Added to the Fourth Gospel in the Second Century?" was selected for publication by the Harvard Theological Review in 2016.
