"If you've followed the Austin Music Minute for awhile now, youre well aware of your AMM hosts proclivity toward music with a dark heart, something that deftly crawls under your skin and wont 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."
Austin Music Minute, Kutx98.9
Elsa Cross plays David Lynchs kind of rockabilly.
Imagine the darkest of scenarios enveloping you in eerily beautiful tones, as though Johnny Cash or perhaps Tom Waits had a sister.
Laurie Gallardo, KUTX 98.9 Austin
Elsa Cross should have been touring with Johnny Cash in his American recording days.
There is a controlled ferocity to her tone and lyrics, even in the musics softest moments, and the songs would seem equally appropriate if performed on a horse ranch or in a Hells Kitchen lounge.
Eddie Spaghetti and The Reverend Horton Heat would both fall in love with this woman.
Elsa was born in Strong, Maine, and currently lives in Austin, Texas.
