Christopher Cross


As a five-time Grammy and Oscar Award winner, Christopher Cross has definitely left his mark on popular music. Since his self-titled debut Warner Brothers release in 1979, his name elicits memories of when one may have heard Sailing or Ride Like The Wind. For those who have looked beyond Cross’s early pop successes, they have found a body of work that launched eight albums of intelligent, melodic, sophisticated and mature music. Although Christopher’s entry into the public eye was meteoric, don’t call him your typical overnight success. His albums Another Page and Walking in Avalon are arguably classics that remain relevant recordings to date. His recent Café Carlyle Sessions reintroduce some of his well known classics in a format and style that is truly all Christopher Cross. Inside MusiCast welcomes the perennial Christopher Cross.

Thanks John! Christopher was a pleasure to chat with and I loved some of the stories he shared with us.

Thanks, John...Christopher was in the zone, man....wanted to share his experiences...he was happy to talk to us, and we're flattered that he thought we we didn't ask any really stupid questions...like the DJs from radio stations do. I'm glad about that. Stay tuned, my friend.

Listening to the last half of the Christopher Cross interview as I type. (for some reason it got dropped the first time?).

I am SO GLAD he and Omartian became friends.

ps: great stuff about Jeff and Steely. The studio stories are hilarious!

Rick and Eddie, I'd been looking forward to having the time to listen to the Christopher Cross interview for the past week and it was well worth the wait. Thank You. His meeting and collaboration with Michael Omartian was heaven sent. Too bad you had to drop his surprise call into the show at the last minute. I'd love to see the two of them reunite, along with Michael McDonald and some of the musicians from the first two albums, for another major production.

Thanks for another great one, guys. I didn't know about Cross' new record, and the sample sounded outstanding. That and the Graydon/Goodrum find were precious things from your recent interviews. I look forward to each and every one.
