As if Black Friday wasn’t enough. Now we have Cyber Monday. Ah, the 21st century. I was going to write a song for today and then I realized I had one already done (that I wrote and recorded last week) that plays to this theme perfectly. Happy Cyber shopping!
Ah the music business, such a lovely fluid entity. Such a wonderful thing and such a dreadful thing. I guess that’s how it’s always been. It would be cool to go back to where it’s just as simple as going into Sun Records and recording. Instead I’ve got Pro Tools and unlimited tracks. A victim of the 21st century.
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.
