I haven’t put an inspirational number up lately. This song rocks motivational style! From my positive thought rock album ‘Passion and Purpose’. This song is fun to play live, especially when we’ve got John Kell on sax in the mix.
A new year and a new blog. This year I’ll be posting a different song from throughout my career as well as new songs and songs that I have done with other artists (producing, writing or collaborating). As I’ve said earlier in my blog, 2011 brings a lot of changes to my life, including a new job and house in Atlanta. That’s why I decided to post “Make My Heart Sing” to start the new year. It has a positive message of “big things happen when you follow your dreams”. This is one of my all time favorites that I’ve released, especially the jam about halfway through with John Kell (on sax) and I (on guitar) playing dueling leads to a fabulous crescendo. 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.
