I apologize for the incomplete blogs, music etc. the last few days. I don’t know exactly what is going on with that. Adair had a similar issue last week, so it must be something with the site. Needless to say, I’ll be more vigilant about making sure the content is up. I wouldn’t want to let down my fan (whoever you are out there).
Today’s song turned out really good actually. It’s pretty tongue in cheek (shocker) and gets back into that double time style I used to write with a lot when we were hitting the college circuit hard, back in the day. Thanks for listening!
June is popping in a little funky. I don’t know where this one came from but I kind of like it. It kind of takes me back to my ‘Dre Days’ producing rap music in Athens, Georgia. It’s funny I never really rapped ever even though I could have. I actually feel kind of confident doing it now. Probably because I can do anything to fill my song a day option and blame it on that. I do seem to inflect a Doctor Dre type style to my raps however. My calling card back in the day was that I always had an upright piano to add to the beat to give it a really signature sound. This is all Korg Triton on this one though.
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.
