August 13,2014 - Runaway Cat Tour - Last Dates
Hello there and greetings from Athens, GA! I'm just going to chime in with a reminder that the Runaway Cat Tour is winding down. The shows in Austin and Shreveport were a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to going back.
Tomorrow night - Thursday - I'll be in Charlotte, NC at the Crown Station Pub, and Friday I'll be in Carrboro, NC at the Open Eye Cafe. See the DATES page for more details.
Hope to see you there. I'll be back with more soon!
- Rob C.
August 6, 2014 - Tonight Austin, Tomorrow Shreveport
I'm having fun here on the road meeting new people and visiting places I've never been before. Tonight I'm playing Patsy's Cafe in Austin, a VERY busy place judging by a lunchtime visit, then tomorrow it's on to Shreveport where I'll be playing at the Naked Bean Cafe.
The Pot Luck Audio Conference was wonderful as always. Saw many old friends, made new ones, heard great stores, and learned a lot!
Time to get ready for Patsy's. See you soon!

July 30, 2014 - The Runaway Cat Tour Rolls On - Tomorrow Tucson!
As the headline says, the Runaway Cat Tour rolls on (and the runaway cat has not been found, unfortunately). The Redding and Eureka shows were wonderful. It was great to see old friends and to play for receptive and supportive audiences. My pal Xeff Scolari, whose band covered "Sorry Again" a few years back, came to the Eureka show & sung along. It's really cool to see people mouthing the words to your songs! Photos were taken and video clips were shot; I'll look at having those up as soon as I can, along with setlists from the shows. This trip has been busy so I might not be able to get them up until I get back to Virginia. But check back regularly; I'll have updates posted as things roll along.
BTW, I've been snapping lots of photos. Check out our Tumblr page to see.
Tomorrow I'll be up bright and early and heading to the Pot Luck Audio Conference in Tucson. I've again been asked to speak on the Home Recording panel. I'll be alongside some people who've made some of my favorite records and I feel honored to have been invited to participate.
That's it for now. If you're in Austin, Shreveport, Charlotte, or Chapel Hill maybe I'll see you at a show.
July 22, 2014 - The Runaway Cat Tour - Redding, CA + "Roses for Sharon" sale
Just a quickie update 'from the road'. I'm writing from Redding, CA after a nice drive down from Portland yesterday. Tonight I'll be playing at Kelly's Pub & Wine bar here in Redding. Go to the Dates page for more info.
As you may know, for the past couple of years we've made Saturday's Radio album downloads available for $3.99 from CD Baby. Honestly, that price hasn't resulted in many sales. We actually get far more download sales through iTunes. So we're going to try an experiment. We're going to raise the CD Baby album download price to $7.49 - still a good price - and pick one album for an "album of the month" sale and price it at $3.49. We'll see how that works. For the rest of July and all of August the featured sale album will be Roses for Sharon. You can get it at that $3.49 price from HERE.
That's it for now. Hope I see you somewhere in my travels!
