Sometimes we forget how we used to be. I’ve always been an undying eternal romantic which has definitely helped with my music writing since about 65% of my songs are usually ‘love’ oriented. This is a song I made last year to help me remember that. Thanks for listening!
Okay, I’ll make this final part of my emotional song saga for the week. Cleaning up the crash. I’m starting to ease in to my life transition a little better now. Good friends definitely make it easier. I wrote the first line to this song way back in Feb. or March when this truck collided with the Simply Green recycling truck when I was standing there sorting on the curb. It missed me by about four inches and was two inches from decapitating the guy that was driving.
This is also an appropriate song for being in Atlanta and the insane traffic. I was in an accident the first day I was here riding with someone else.
Alright, this song is up now. For some reason it didn’t post earlier.
July 21st is my Mom’s birthday! Happy Birthday Mom. She’s ahead of the technology curb now because she has an iPad . It’s pretty sweet.
“Healing Song” is unrelated to that. This is a song that speaks to someone who has just gone through a break up.
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.
