What a week and it’s still going. I’ve got an acoustic gig out of town tonight and then drive even farther tomorrow for a Master Plan gig at a wedding in Pinehurst. Weddings are a ton of fun to play. Everybody is there to have a good time. It’ll also be our first gig with our new guitar player and vocalist Chris Campbell.
It’s a country themed thing, so we get to get our country on which is also a lot of fun. Today’s song is a british rock inspired song, created when I put it on the british rock selection on my amp.
Monday again and back on the recycling boat. Of course I made the mistake of spending my whole weekend building my massive fence, so I’m starting the week sore; which is not a good thing. Oh well, at least today I managed to work, drive 130 miles, go to the library, return my mower and get a new one, practice for my golf tournament this weekend in Georgia, mow the grass (with my new cordless mower), write this song and the song for tomorrow (because I’ll be out of town) and hang out with my lovely wife and our pets (and watch the Lakers).
For some reason money is the subject for the second day in a row. Honestly, it’s not something that’s on my mind right now for the first time in my life. This must be how I’m exorcising those demons.
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.
