Today’s song is called “Rest” and I guess you could call it a fantasy on my part. My motto is “if I’m awake I’m working”. That’s basically how it has to be to get all of the things I do done. And I still don’t have quite the time I need. I sleep six hours a night which usually works out okay, it’s just that every few weeks I’ve got to really try and sleep a long time to catch up. But I usually just lay and bed and think about all of the stuff I need to do.. Oh well. I’ll live vicariously through this song.
I’ll post the song when I get back to Asheville Wednesday. Thanks for listening.
A welcome day of rest after a killer recycling week. Luckily studio work doesn’t take a huge amount of physical energy. My new mower is already on the fritz, so I don’t have the tremendous urge to mow with “Mow Mow Mow the Grass” (my song from April 11th) playing my head constantly.
“What a beautiful Feeling” turned out to sound a little motown-y. I’ve been writing on the piano this week, it seems to be where the songs are popping out of.
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.
