What a day to be one of those days. Actually, it’s been a pretty decent day. I’m at home for the entire weekend which is an extremely rare thing. I should probably work on my massive back yard fence project but the A/C feels too good today after picking up recycling in the 100 degree heat all week.
Anyway, we’ve been thinking about the future a lot the last few days, so that’s where this song was born. Thanks for listening!
We had a great show down in Georgia last night. It was on the lake and it was beautiful. Once again my song “Crazy or Crazy in Love” from this blog project was the biggest hit. I’m pretty excited about the second half of the year. I guess I feel that since I’ve gotten this far, I may as well use some of the things I’ve learned about myself and my commitment to making music.
Anyway, “I Never Do That” came from something I heard someone say tonight as I was out scoping conversations for song tidbits. This is one of those songs that shows you don’t have to have a lot of different words to create a song.
I’m officially half way through with my song a day and blog about it project. Technically, I think the actual day would be the 3rd of July. Which, ironically I’ll probably be posting today anyway as I’m catching up from being out of town and unable to record.
“July Alibi” is a funky number about getting things done this month despite the lack of time, excessive heat and occasional fatigue. I’m always optimistic but sometimes I have to give myself a pep talk or two.
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.
