I haven’t done a story / “mood” piece in a while. I don’t know where this one came from but it’s kind of depressing. It’s basically taking the position of a homelesss man who has gotten that way because of mental illness. My friend Neil Laurence did a song and video about this a while back. View Neil’s Vid Here
If you’re in the Greenville area tomorrow, I’ll be on the “Your Carolina” TV show in the morning and then we’re headlining Main St. Friday night in down town Greenville. Thanks for listening!
Back to my fence building obsession for the weekend. I’ve gotten 15% of my 700 foot endeavor done so far. Only 85% to go!
As for my song a day for 2010, I’m fairing much better. Can you believe I’m closing in on halfway already. This is my 135th song, that’s probably as many as I wrote last decade. Hopefully this one is worthy of it’s 135th song importance. Actually, this one is mostly just a funky groove number (shocker).
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.
