So she said we’re playing in Chapel Hill

Hi Again,

As September winds down, so do the celebrations for the 20th Anniversary of our debut release Smile Slightly. CD Baby has it on sale for only $3.49 if you’d like to download it from those fine folks. But do hurry; that offer is going away after September 30th. 

We also have one last video for Smile Slightly. This one’s for “Why (So She Said)”. This was the last song I recorded for the album, as I recall, and by this point I was warmed up and on a creative roll. Arrangement-wise I’m pretty proud of this recording, especially considering I had to do it on a 4-track cassette machine. Lyrically I think it reflects the twenty-something angst and uncertainty I was feeling at the time. I probably wouldn’t write this song today, but then art is about capturing a time, isn’t it?

Finally we do have a show to announce. I’ll be playing solo-acoustic style, as is my custom these days, at Caffe Driade in Chapel Hill, NC. It’s happening on Saturday, October 18, and I’ll be starting at 8 and going until 10:30 or so. See the Shows page for details. Hope to see you there!

Until next time…

Rob C.

Smile Slightly Videos + Live Update

Hello & Happy Monday,

As mentioned last week, this month marks the 20th anniversary of our debut album Smile Slightly. To celebrate we’ve been putting together lyric videos for songs from the album. While six of the album’s songs already had videos on You Tube, over the past week or so we’ve put up three more.

Enjoy! 

You may have seen that we had a show scheduled for November in Orange, VA at The Light Well. That’s been pushed back to December 5th. See the Live page for details. 

See you soon!
