I’m excited to announce my new Chris Cates album “Complicated Artist Type”.  It features 14 brand new songs I wrote in Ireland, Las Vegas and at my studio in Atlanta.

It’s a bit different than most of my albums in that the instrumentation is more sparse, just utilizing a single acoustic (or 12 string), one super distorted electric guitar, sometimes swapping bass for cello and very minimalist drums and beats.  And of course, my signature harmonica and John Kell’s sax.

It creates the mood around the mental and emotional struggles of dealing with life relationships and the want and need to be constantly be creating art.

“It’s my old soul, that keeps me on the edge of chaos and control, part spirit part human part animal”.

The title track which features some nice backing vocals from Adair, Jeramy Lamanno, Kerry Jones and John Kell (who also contributes to the mellow instrumental interlude).  Thanks for listening!
