In lieu of my Dad’s birthday yesterday, I thought I’d post one of my #shag songs I wrote about him. In this tune, I tried to simulate the 50’s style blues beat that he loves to dance to. “Old rubber legs Jim is on the loose again”. “Beach Beat” is one of several #beachmusic songs featuring Chris Singleton, Jason Peeler and John Kell on my #CarolinaSongs album.
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.
