The summer’s not even totally over yet and I’m already writing ‘Fall songs’. I must admit that back in the day, fall was my favorite subject. I lived in Boone and was constantly surrounded by those lovely Carolina autumn leaves. However, I’m probably writing cool weather songs now because I’m ready for this scorching summer to get over with. I guess I’ve already adopted my cool air attitude.
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.
