Welcome to the new chadcates.net. I am grateful for successes. I am also so grateful for weakness because it builds community and I LOVE community. I love co-writing. Any success is because of the community around me.
That being said, here are a few highlights:
It’s about a great song.
It’s about how a song causes you sit up in your chair or stand up and cheer.
It’s about a melody that makes you feel the truth and sets your heart free.
It’s about how production captures a moment and allows something to land so deep inside.
It’s about mentoring younger writers/artists who you see the same spark that you saw in yourself.
It’s about being so grateful that other writers and artists took the time to invest in you.
I am grateful for successes. I am also so grateful for weakness because it builds community and I LOVE community. I love co-writing.
Here are a few of the artists I am grateful to have written with/for:
Mandisa, Casting Crowns, Matt Wertz, Brandon Heath, Andrew Ripp, Jaci Velasquez, The Daylights, Matthew Perryman Jones, Steve Moakler, Ben Rector, Rebecca St James, Selah, Salvador, and Elenowen.
I was so surprised to win two Dove Awards. One for the song, Everything to Me by Avalon and one for Lost by the rock band RED.
I love technology, golf, and skateboarding. I am married to Sarah and new Dad to Livia.
