About Christopher Cross
40+ years after his extraordinary emergence into the music business, Christopher Cross continues his recording and performing career.
Within a year of the first album’s release, Cross was keeping company with music royalty like Burt Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager. Through that collaboration, he won an Oscar for “Arthur’s Theme,” the theme song for the movie Arthur. With his 1993 release, Another Page, Cross was again in the Top 10 with the singles “Alright” and “Think of Laura.” His song, “Swept Away,” composed for the hit television series Growing Pains was nominated for an Emmy in 1988. His creative flame continues to burn brighter than ever, and his 12 albums that have followed since his 1980’s self-titled debut demonstrate that not only are his first fans still listening enthusiastically but also that a new generation is discovering and embracing his music.
All in all, it’s been quite a ride, one that’s taken Cross from his early days in Texas, where he once served as a drum tech for Ginger Baker, bought gear from Jimmy Page, played lead guitar for Deep Purple on a night when Ritchie Blackmore fell ill, and many more unique experiences; to his current role as an ever-evolving musician touring the world.
