I apologize for the incomplete blogs, music etc. the last few days. I don’t know exactly what is going on with that. Adair had a similar issue last week, so it must be something with the site. Needless to say, I’ll be more vigilant about making sure the content is up. I wouldn’t want to let down my fan (whoever you are out there).
Today’s song turned out really good actually. It’s pretty tongue in cheek (shocker) and gets back into that double time style I used to write with a lot when we were hitting the college circuit hard, back in the day. Thanks for listening!
Something compelled me to go back and dig up this song and re-create it today. Part of this recording is something I recorded in the original Mealtime Brown studios in Athens, Georgia around 1998 or ’99. I don’t even know who the guys are that are playing the awesome banjo and upright bass. I went and found it, re-arranged it, added some funk, junk and rewrote the vocals. But I was sincerely trying to keep the original vibe we had cooking that day.
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.
