House of Blues Dallas
She's our local girl-next-door with a feisty blues, soul-shining voice and the ability to transport the listener to a livelier dimension of the universe. Singer, Christen "C.C" Cross was born and raised in Waco, Texas gaining popularity through her love of music and her unique way of dazzling listeners with her raw energy as a performer as well as her heartfelt songwriting and singing. C.C.'s career seemed inevitable with her early passion for performing and musical inspiration provided by The Gatlin Brothers, The Outlaws, and all the rest of her favorite 70's and 80's country artists. Her shining, singing the blues voice is a distinctive instrument on it's own as she gains momentum with the release of her first c.d. this year. C.C. bears watching, mark my words, as she brings a new level of blues tinted sunshine into the country music / southern rock world. C.C. is an original and will control the direction of her road.
In December 2006, the C.C. Cross (Christen Carol Cross) Band was formed. The C.C. Cross band made a name for themselves as a very unique sounding Texas music act, with C.C.'s powerful vocals and the original writing styles of both C.C. and John Cross. During 2007 and 2008, C.C. and the C.C. Cross Band, played over 272 shows each year either acoustic or full band. C.C. released her first c.d., "The Next Heart You Break", recorded during several trips to Nashville and fine-tuned in Dallas, in late July of 2009. The c.d. is being well-received, and C.C.'s first single off the c.d. "Austin" is doing well on Texas radio. There are many great things to come from C.C. in the years to come.
