What a week. Nothing like a good deal of hard labor to get the old blood flowing. Now it’s time for a weekend of solo acoustic gigs. The band has been on hiatus and I’m itching to get out gigging again with them. We crank it back up next week luckily.
This song would not exist if Neil Young was not a mainstay in my music players during my formative years. Writing songs like this remind me of my teenage years driving through the Pisgah forest.
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.
