Day two of my two day vacation. It’s not so sweet knowing you’ve got to go home soon. But then again I have a lot of obligations, so it’s also bitter sweet (ie recording a song for everyday in 2010). Being creative, I tried to be totally in the moment, which was beach house vacation-style with my writing. If I’m not being topical to my situations I encounter occasionally, how will I ever look back on this year years from now and remember what I was doing.
The tire exploded on the recycling truck yesterday afternoon, so it’s been an interesting week. We still managed to get to 220 houses in Hildebran today and pull in about 6000 pounds of stuff. The perfect background for me to come home and write an ambient love song right? This song is more of a mood piece than a normal vocal song. It’s meant to capture that feeling when you first fall in love.
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.
