Today is supposed to be a little cooler so I figured I’d post this one. It’s about feeling Fall for the first time. I wrote a song that started like this, sophomore year at Appalachian State in Cone dorm, but I have no idea where it went from there. I’m sure I have a TDK with the 8-track Tascam version of that song somewhere. This version turned out pretty good. I captured my whole Neil Young and the Bluenotes tone that I used to love so much around that time. Thanks for listening!
I had a good friend who had a terrible loss this week. It was very heart wrenching and I’ve thought about him a lot. It made me re-examine the love I give and receive in life. I do a decent job (especially to the animals) but I know I can always do better. We don’t think about that enough as human beings.
That’s what inspired “No Limit on Love”. The chorus is one of my favorites so far “There is no limit on love, ask for as much as you want, you deserve it”.
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.
