I’m back posting songs from My Old Soul. I took a brief hiatus to respect the memory of a good friend.
Anyways, I should have posted this one last week as we were experiencing our final cold spell of the year. This is one of my favorites to play at home on acoustic. It’s simple but has a fun chorus for sing a longs. The middle instrumental section is especially #burtbacharach – esque with John Kell intertwining sax with my lead guitar theme.
The summer’s not even totally over yet and I’m already writing ‘Fall songs’. I must admit that back in the day, fall was my favorite subject. I lived in Boone and was constantly surrounded by those lovely Carolina autumn leaves. However, I’m probably writing cool weather songs now because I’m ready for this scorching summer to get over with. I guess I’ve already adopted my cool air attitude.
I don’t know where this one came from. Probably sitting in too much traffic in too many states the last couple of days. Or running into old high school friends that look completely different now. Especially guys that have literally put on seventy p0unds of muscle since their scrawny school days. And if there was a category for sloppy heavy metal, this would be it.
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.
