“We have laughed and we have cried, fallen down and learned to fly, we still get by”
Once again, work and life has prolonged my song postings from my new album My Old Soul. Today’s song has some rather existential words and feel good chorus about hope and some very Burt Bacharach-esque musical sections. I will never shy away from using lots of french horn (my favorite instrument) and when you add that in with John Kell’s sax, only good things can happen. Thanks for listening!
I got up fairly early and worked on other stuff and then I wrote this right before lunch and then recorded it after the Patriots started getting completely romped.
“The Sweetest Thing is Everything” started with a few old words about inspiration and ended up like it ended up. I finally got to put some of my favorite french horns into one of these new songs (Burt Bacharach style)!
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.
