Dear Friends,

 

Hope all is well. We just finished a 3 week bus run in the US, then right to Japan. I just got home and am feeling a bit like burnt toast, but the shows went really well thanks to you.

 

As you can see I have a new project band in Austin called “Freedonia”. It’s been a ton of fun to working with these talented folks, and I am very excited about the album coming out, and our first show in Austin June 8th.

 

The band features a horn section with 3 saxes, as well as a great rhythm section. I play guitar and sing lead vocals. We have 14 new songs, however we do not play any CC material in our shows.

 

No worries I will of course continue to play CC shows.

 

I am hoping the band catches on and builds a following beyond Austin and can tour, we shall see.

 

My musical journey continues with your support. thank you!

 

Christopher

 

 

 

TAKE ME AS I AM

 

Take Me AS I Am - Chistopher Cross

 

The new album from Christopher Cross is available now at these online retailers:

 

 

 

 

 

"Take Me As I Am" is a unique offering from Christopher Cross, a hybrid of sorts – the songs are instrumentals with choruses to create the lyrical landscape. This is not quite a “guitar” album, but it leaves the listener with no question about his expertise on the subject. Two very special songs are “Roberta," dedicated to Christopher’s mentor, Joni Mitchell, and “Truth” with a lyric by Rob Meurer, one of the last songs Rob wrote before his tragic passing. This song is sung as a duet with Gigi Worth, a name that will be familiar to Christopher’s fans. Gigi and Rob were also very close, which makes her performance on this track all the more meaningful. The album closes with a song in memory of Rob called "Alvah," (Rob’s middle name), which features beautiful string arrangements by Chris Walden. In Christopher’s words, “It was a blessing to work with all these talented folks in the making of this album which holds so many bittersweet emotions for me. I didn't expect to make another one, but, as Rob reminded me once, it's what we do.” Enjoy!
