Jan 1st “2010″

This is my ambitious blog experiment for 2010.

In 2010, starting today, Jan. 1st, I am going to write a song each day and post it here and write about the experience in this popular “blog” format which I am still weary of with my Gen X DNA.

My criteria will be

1.  The song has to be around a minute long minimum

2. It has to be from good effort (I can’t phone it in,  however, I can record it on my iPhone)

3.With lyrics is a plus but I can contribute instrumentals  (I do love my Triton keyboard)

4. I can collaborate (making music is fun with other folks )

So here it goes.  Today I decided to write a cheesy feel good anthem about getting things kick started for 2010.   I’m very optimistic about this year and this song is a little pep talk.

WordPress is not making it easy to upgrade their services to play mp3’s,  so I will have to redirect to my main website to play the song.    In the future I hope to be displaying the mp3’s for people to upload free directly from this blog.

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.
