Singer/songwriter Rob Rideout is the inspirational author of the award winning book Still Singing, Somehow and lives on a farm with his three cats Baba, Maya and Olive overlooking Colville, WA. Rob has lived many lifetimes and lifestyles in one incarnation.
He has experienced foreign travel in nineteen countries, lived over a decade in the woods on 12 volts, played music professionally for twenty-eight years, has chanted bhajans three decades, attended India's Kumbha Mela festival with ten million holy men, and managed to survive and keep a positive attitude through two divorces, death of his sister, mother and father, house fire, tragic accidents, overcoming alcoholism and finally prison for a felony DUI. However, Rob used his prison time wisely to get well and write his story for his son, which seven years later with many re-writes became his book.
After all he has been through, he sees a positive way to look at every moment, no matter what is happening. The choice is always ours to make.
Rob recently published a second book of poetry, based on his song lyrics entitled Still Singing, Somehow - The Songs. He has a CD of nearly thirty years worth of original songs that was released spring of 2011. These songs accompany his memoir, an odyssey of one soul's karma.

- The Truth About Simple Unhooked Living
on April 29, 2012
Everybody could gain a lot by reading this simple book. I can really identify with the author, as I too lived a decade off the grid & learned the art of simplicity long ago, on all levels. I've lost everything to a house fire then again from divorce and a 2.5 year stint in prison for a DUI. I know about everything she is saying here, but others need to hear her message- especiall today! Good jod Estar!
