We went and saw Trey Anastasio, my favorite musician in concert last night in Charlotte and I’m inspired to write more than ever. He’s touring with horns and his old band playing songs from his first album which I love.
Anyway, the show last night has been a new source of inspiration for me. I wrote music to several new songs today before finally landing on this one. I must admit I like the funky stuff. It seems like I can endlessly write these disco type songs.
Mainly because that’s what I want to listen to I think.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
