I listened to Manu Chao last week on our trip to the mid-west and remembered how great his music is. He does a lot with drums and percussion without playing them in the traditional way. That’s what I had in mind with this song. I actually started with the drums and then wrote the music and words.
Also today is my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary!
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.
