It’s been nice getting back in the studio. I used to worry that I wouldn’t be able to write the songs. Tonight I realized that that thought never enters my mind now. I usually have several competing thoughts playing out to determine which direction I’m gonna go musically each day. I basically just try not to get in the way and amazingly whatever happens is usually what happens. (I smell a song in that last line).
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.
