My tribute album to the mountains and the beach of my home state of North Carolina. It has a mixture of my mountain folk funk and “beach music” songs inspired by my Dad’s shag dancing expertise.
Featuring the MasterPlan, Chris Singleton, Jason Peeler and John Kell with backing vocals by Corrina Cassanova, Adair Cates and Neil Laurence.
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.
