The third song from “My Old Soul” has the classic four on the floor kick drum beat that makes booty shaking a must. Add in some synths, guitars, strings and lyrics questioning life’s struggles and how to sift through them and you’ve got a jam.
“I’ll always be dreaming, if I’m breathing I’m dreaming and one won’t stop before the other”. Thanks for listening!
My new album is finally complete and out today!! It took a while to record and finish and there were some casualties along the way but now it’s here! “My Old Soul” mixes R&B elements with synthesizers, sax and guitars and has a general concept of loose spirituality and consciousness. I’m playing guitar, keys, drums, harmonica etc. with Chris Singleton playing bass on most of the album and John Kell on Sax. Adair Cates, Jeramy Lamanno, Kerry Jones and John Kell sing back ups.
“What a Beautiful Feeling” is the first song and it gets the good vibes going right away. I tried to show a little motown influence on it while throwing in a big #TreyAnastasio like guitar solo to bring it home. Thanks for listening! #newmusic #chriscates #myoldsoul
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.
