Today started off a little shaky after staying up late watching Duke win it while mixing Metal songs for some friends of mine. But I made it through a hot day recycling. The first day I wore shorts. They’re already asking when I’m breaking out the work sandals. I said “Very soon”, “very soon”.
“The Simple Idea of Love” seemed to flow out of me tonight. I think this song might turn out to be pretty good. I might come back and add a keyboard when I get a chance.

I unleashed my white legs on the world today. Spring is officially here, the shorts are out!
I’ve now got a new studio mate, a new puppy named Mozart, to go along with Wario, my cat and long time studio mate. It’s great to get moral support from them. They always give me good feedback. Lionel my other cat drops by the studio from time to time to lend imput but he’s heard too many loud noises in here and isn’t as keen on the studio scene.
Today’s song is “The Truth Might Hurt” it’s the first thing that popped out after my bad outing in the money game at the golf course this morning. Never play golf for money after four hours sleep and an out of town gig.

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.
