I’m officially letting go of winter with this song. No more snow references or the wind or the temperature. It’s been a good winter to write about however. Hopefully that doesn’t mean it’s gonna be a summer to write about (weather related that is).
Anyway, I heard most of the ‘Sweet Baby James’ album by JT today recycling and that’s definitely what inspired this song style. I added the accordion to give it that french cafe ambiance that I’ve been longing for.
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.
