It’s that time of year again when my wife and I are questioning everything we’re doing and wondering if it’s time to move to a bigger market. For our respective careers, western NC is not exactly the best. We love it here for every other reason but is it holding us back?
Anyway, through the constant fears and speculation, I told my wife I’d write a song for her to feel better. and here it is. I haven’t written a motivational one in a while. I hope it inspires you.
I’m finally back home for a day. It’s been several weeks since I’ve had a “day off”. Of course that means my day off is not playing golf at Reem’s Creek, it’s playing catch up recording songs for my 365 songs blog. I’ve still been writing every day, I just haven’t been able to record for three days.
I did some cool things though, aside from the daily work, I saw Phish in Raleigh which was awesome, then I played a show in Sylva last night at their downtown amphi-theatre. We played the best we’ve played with the new line up. It was a blast.
What a beautiful weekend. We got a new puppy this week and have enjoyed having him outside and walking down town in Asheville.
Our internet has been down, so I’m just getting back to posting again. I’ve got a few songs lined up and ready to go however.
Today’s song “Look for Hidden Meanings” is just what came out when I sat down to write. I’ve had a super busy work schedule, so I’m really looking forward to next weekend to really relax and make some relaxed music. Instead of frantically writing and recording. Anyway, thanks for listening!!
Today started out looking like a beautiful day. After raining for a few days it actually looked like spring was finally here. Then about eleven it became grey and cold again. Oh well. It was too wet to play golf today anyway.
“Daydream Sharing” is about lying around on a rainy day being lazy. This is actually the opposite of what I do on lazy days. I usually work extra hard in the studio on those days.

Science research just found out that the human brain is not fully developed until men turn 25 and it’s a little sooner for women. So basically we are clinically insane until we’re about 25.
That’s why we do so many crazy things at an early age and eventually start becoming more sensible. And it’s also why we’ll do the craziest things and feel the craziest things when we’re young and in love.
That’s what “Crazy or Crazy in Love” ponders, ‘are you really crazy or is being in love what is making you do crazy things.’
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.
