I got to play in a golf tournament today and had a blast. Golf is good stuff, I used to be obsessed but now I’ve managed to get it out of my habits. That is to not to say that I still won’t write some funny golf songs now and then.
Tonight’s song ended up being simple. I started to build on what I had going but my french horn (keyboard) solo rocked so hard that I had to leave it like it is. Thanks for listening!
Ah Springtime is finally almost here. No more mornings working in sub-zero temperatures I hope. The downside, now the sweating begins.
That must be why I seem to be writing themes with recuperative nature lately. “Living Life After the Fact” is along that route. It’s got a beachy old school vibe to it and I kept it simple (for time reasons mainly). This is really the kind of music I like doing a lot, I’m a big Donald Duck Dunn fan and love to write bass lines like his.
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.
