A welcome day of rest after a killer recycling week. Luckily studio work doesn’t take a huge amount of physical energy. My new mower is already on the fritz, so I don’t have the tremendous urge to mow with “Mow Mow Mow the Grass” (my song from April 11th) playing my head constantly.
“What a beautiful Feeling” turned out to sound a little motown-y. I’ve been writing on the piano this week, it seems to be where the songs are popping out of.
Finally a few sunny days!! Hopefully we’ll get some spring like weather now.
Tonight’s song is about how as we get older we let some of our more romantic habits go. We’ve got to remember to have fun and be more carefree. Too often we get bogged down by real world problems and forget that we’re here to be joyous and to live like children.
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.
