I’m officially half way through with my song a day and blog about it project. Technically, I think the actual day would be the 3rd of July. Which, ironically I’ll probably be posting today anyway as I’m catching up from being out of town and unable to record.
“July Alibi” is a funky number about getting things done this month despite the lack of time, excessive heat and occasional fatigue. I’m always optimistic but sometimes I have to give myself a pep talk or two.
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.
