Freedonia – New band project featuring Christopher Cross.

Words from Christopher Cross

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!

Scott Laningham-Drums
