It’s finally time for that perfect Asheville weather, reminding me of why I have loved living here for the past five years. We took our dog Mozart to the Parkway today for a little hike which was mighty nice (aside from a few assorted bee stings).
“Star Tattoo” came from a random conversation I had with Adair this morning. She mentioned something about a star tattoo and I said that sounds like a good song for today. So here it is! Thanks for listening!
March is rolling in and like clockwork we’ve got another winter weather advisory. I think I’ve mentioned that I’ve canceled four gigs already this year because of weather and it’s starting to get old.
Not to mention driving a ten thousand pound truck in the snow and ice. Actually that’s kind of fun.
“Spring in Asheville” is kind of recognizing a few good and bad things in the world today while wishing for spring at the same time. I really don’t hate the cold as much as I make it out in this song. I actually don’t mind it much.
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.
