I’ll move from the Seeing Eye Band album back to my other recent re-release Getaway Plans Anniversary Remix. This is a song that didn’t make the original album for some reason but it has now been resurrected. Recorded with the Parakeet Nelson band featuring John Wayne Tuggle on slide guitar, Dwayne Wallace on bass and Dave Brockway on drums.
It’s a song basically telling the story of my music career. I’ve always been so eclectic and all over the place I guess it’s always been hard to put my music into one category. We played this song live for a few years but this is the first time it’s been unleashed into the online music lexicon. Thanks for listening!!
Back to posting ‘Risky Biscuits’ songs. This one is a super jammer. A little bit reggae a lot rock. We recorded this live with an eight piece band in Wes McDonald’s studio (a fine musician and artist himself look him up https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/wes-mcdonald/id6432590).
Anyway, this song is a declaration of love with a little innuendo and a great great band!! John Kell, Chris Costigan and Gary Hartle’s saxes are on fire on this one and John Wayne Tuggle plays a tasty guitar solo. I had a broken hand and a ruptured radial nerve but I still managed to hold down the rhythm guitar. Incredible drummer Seth Hendershot and legendary bassist AJ Adams round it out! Thanks for listening!
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.
