More From the Cross

If you’ve followed the Austin Music Minute for awhile now, you’re well aware of your AMM host’s proclivity toward music with a dark heart, something that deftly crawls under your skin and won’t let go. AMM fave Elsa Cross is one such artiste, who turns her keen observations into heart-piercing Americana/roots-rock revealing the inner turmoil behind the outwardly badass troubadour.

A new album by Cross is in the works, with a bit of help from fans through a new Kickstarter campaign that she’ll launch soon. Musician Hunt Sales (David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Leon Russell, Todd Rundgren, Eric Clapton) is producing the new work, featuring Tjarko Jeen on guitar and Kevin Smith on bass.

Cross has a show tomorrow night at The Blackheart, 86 Rainey St., sharing the bill with fellow powerhouses Beth Lee & The Breakups, and Christy Hays. The music starts at 9:30 p.m. Very recommended.
