Hey guys just checking in on what I think could finally be considered a gorgeous October day in North Carolina! Still a little warm but I suppose I'm not going to complain about that. Honestly I have a little Tech talk for you I just wanted to lay down the importance of cleaning your pedalboard. I've had some serious issues this week because I work in such salty air that I have to clean my pedalboard at least once every two weeks. If you work in salty conditions they can be a nightmare. Even if you don't I recommend cleaning them at least once a month all of your inputs I know it's a pain but it will benefit you in the end your time will benefit and you will have less headaches at gigs. The reason I say this is because I've had a few headaches at gigs this week and so I just wanted to let the world know to remember to clean your pedalboard! Hope you guys are well I'll talk to you soon. Rob.

Hey guys just want to let you know that tonight was a wonderful evening at Havana's in Carolina Beach! Everything sounded great but I swear the Bose system is still calling my name all my friends seem to be suggesting it even though I'm an altruist tonight has to have heavy Yamaha speakers for some reason! Anyways just wanted to drop in and say hey and I'll be putting up a video in the next couple of days on my YouTube page it's got me picking around on some fun Tunes most of them are original so  but there's a couple of covers in there. I'll talk to you guys soon!

Hey guys if just coming to my page for the first time you may notice a tremendous gap between now and my last entry.  Truth be told I've been gigging like crazy all summer and any other free time has been spent attending to that never ending domestic dance we all try to coordinate daily.  Also no tech talk today I just wanted to let you all know that I am back in full force particularly regarding areas of my online presence which has up to now been my weakest point as a modern artist.  But honestly I can't say I feel particularly bad about that one.  That being said, I very much hope you enjoyed the "Carolina "Night" video and I promise there will be many more to come. Take care you all and thanks so much for stopping by.  Come back soon there will always be new stuff!!  Rob

Youtube Videos! 

Hey guys just wanted to let you know that I'll be putting up some cool electric guitar exercises and some how-to's on some of the gear I use.  Be on the lookout!

Drive Pedals! 

I got a seriously sweet clean boost pedal this week. It's the small version of the T.C. Helicon Spark and it tops out my whole pedalboard!  I love it.  Had this weekend off but I'll be back in Wrightsville Beach next week and I'm still working hard to finish up the next two singles.  Thanks for stopping by! 

The Weather and The Mood! 

This has got to be my favorite time of year to play.  Generally the crowds are in a better mood because the heat isn't so brutal. The Sun shines itself again. And we begin to feel those moments when the path feels right.  Go with them my friends. Write, paint, practice, read, engage.  Let the clutch out and that car will go. Take my word for it! All the love as always.  Music is a great vehicle to bring us together, But hardship, friendship, and compassion are the catalyst the bind us. Be as happy as you can be in the moment.  But no matter what don't waste it. Rob

Akademia Awards! 

Today I entered five songs off a previous album including "Goodbye To Rain" and "Queen Mary" in the competition for the International Akademia Awards!  I had a DJ from WLDN London tell me that they get most of their new material from Akademia Award winners so a win could mean some serious radio play and soundtrack opportunities so keep your fingers crossed for me guys!  Check out the site if you get a chance www.theAkademia.com!

Weekend Shows! 

This weekend I'm delighted to be sharing the stage at Lagerhead"s in Wrightsville Beach this Friday night with one of my oldest friends and fellow musicians Mr. Brett Johnson!  I would also like to thank John Wade for laying down the drum tracks on my latest album as well as Tommy Brothers who is an amazing engineer/producer and a hell of a guitar player.  New tracks coming soon!! And maybe there's been talk of a video for a few of my songs, we'll see.  Thanks everybody for stopping by!

Back In The Studio! 

Hey everybody,

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm currently working on my third studio album. I know it is often said in the industry that this next one is gonna be a killer. Sometimes we're right, other times we're wrong but I have to say that I'm more proud of this work than I have ever been on any previous album. I love them all like children. They are my creations and like children we always hate to pick a favorite.  But when it comes to my body of work, I really think this one is going to shine above the rest.  So, long-winded story short, you guys are gonna love these tunes.  I invite you all to come to you're own conclusions about their meanings.  Please feel free to share your interpretations with me.  I love that stuff.  To summarize I suppose, I hope you all get as much out of this music as I would like you to.  As much if not much more than I intended for you to.  Keep listening, keep reading, keep fighting.  Thanks,
