For about the last six months I’ve been mostly listening to classical music when I’m working or riding in the car. I’ve heard everything else so many times that it’s refreshing to be constantly hearing new pieces of music that I rent from the library and hear on WDAV. I’ll still listen to all kinds of stuff but old Vivaldi keeps calling me back.
That’s what inspired this one. This is my keyboard classical composition.
I can’t believe it’s been two months already!! Is it really March? I’m psyched that I’ve managed to write and record 59 songs during that time. It’s been easy at times and it’s been a real pisser a few times.
February was another snowy and cold month, which meant lots of interesting days doing curbside recycling. I had a pretty good time for the most part. And this song a day thing has forced me to itemize every second of my day. I’m left wondering however, when do my aching hands get a rest?
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.
