I actually got some good studio time in to catch up and get ahead. I like this new mentality of working a few days ahead. I don’t feel like I’m in as much of a hurry if I have a few songs ready to go already. Currently I’ve got ten songs brewing in some fashion or another . The only thing is, I’ll try like a dickens to write and record something new before putting something pre-recorded up.
Today’s song is a play on cheap wine and irony. A popular theme among beatniks.
I apologize for the incomplete blogs, music etc. the last few days. I don’t know exactly what is going on with that. Adair had a similar issue last week, so it must be something with the site. Needless to say, I’ll be more vigilant about making sure the content is up. I wouldn’t want to let down my fan (whoever you are out there).
Today’s song turned out really good actually. It’s pretty tongue in cheek (shocker) and gets back into that double time style I used to write with a lot when we were hitting the college circuit hard, back in the day. 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.
