Happy New Year! Let’s start the year of with a song about celebrating with friends and reflecting on the past year. 2015 was a good one for me musically and otherwise. I enjoyed my first year with Joy and Coral, my new twins, developed a bunch of solar, managed to release 5 albums and 5 singles and to have a little bit of fun along the way.
Thanks for another great year. Here’s another round for you.
Here’s my new vid paying tribute to beer and beer can collectors everywhere. Featuring 150+ beer cans from my Dad’s collection.
I’m playing all the instruments on the song except for John Kell’s tasty alto sax. This song was originally from my 365 Songs for 2010.
Thanks for watching!
I’ve been sitting on this song for a minute. That’s either because it’s awesome or because it’s just rude dog (as the old saying goes). It may very well end up to be one of the more timeless songs I’ve done this year with it’s uptempo Curtis Mayfield/Trick Daddy vibe. And morally it seems to stand on it’s on. What those morals are, I’m still trying to decide.
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.
