  • The CD is ALMOST HERE!!!

    Howdy Everyone!

    Bassist Billie here!  

    Hope you all are doing well and survived the winter weather.  We have a couple of exciting announcements from the Rosewood Bluff camp!  Tim Shearer's new little bundle of joy arrived yesterday (weeks early and perfectly healthy!) and her name is Annie.  :D  She clearly couldn't wait any longer to see the world and we welcome her into the Rosewood Bluff family!

    The new CD was sent off to the printers this week, and it will be arriving shortly.  We are beyond thrilled at how it turned out.  We're going to get them all out to our Kickstarter supporters first, and then we'll have them available at shows!  We are super proud as to how the album turned out and we cannot wait to hear what you all think.  Skillet at Crawlspace Press did the front cover, and our own Nathan Golub did the layout and artistic direction.  I included the picture above to give y'all a little tease... the CD features some of my photography from when I visited Clarksdale, Mississippi!  

    We are dedicating the album to our dear friend and drummer Matt Brown, to whom John wrote one of my favorite songs called "Blue" in his memory.  John mentioned the song title and a few lyrics to me around the time I was going to Clarksdale to work on a recording project.  I saw the sign pictured above and luckily had my camera nearby... the rest is history.

    The CD release party will be at The Cave in Chapel Hill, and it's going to be a helluvah party!  It will be Saturday, April 12, 2014 with our dear friends from The Magnolia Collective.  Come on out and help us celebrate our release!

    Can't wait till April?!  That's okay.  We've got you covered!  Put on your best cowboy boots and head on over to The Garage in Winston-Salem, NC on February 28th-March 1st for Cash Bash 2014.  We'll be there on Friday, the 28th!  Word of advice?  Get your tickets in advance... the show tends to sell out and you really don't want to miss it.  We've got some fun tricks/Cash covers up our sleeves!

    In March, John will be doing a few solo shows - so keep an eye on the "Shows" page for those.  Catching John in this setting is quite the intimate sonic treat for all you songwriting fans.

    In the mood for something completely different?  Come check out John and my's (cow)punk rock alter egos in the P-90's with The Bleeding Hearts at The Cave this Saturday, February 22nd.  $5, 10PM.  We don't do it often, so it's bound to be an adventure!

    Whew!  That's it for now.  Want us to come to your town?  Shoot us an email at johnhowiejr@gmail.com and we'll see what we can do for ya!

    Until next time!

    Much love,

    ~Billie.
