Down Hard Goes the Day

by Cross the Dog

Roaring electric guitars, soulful acoustics, banjo, pedal steel, Hammond B3, and vocal harmonies are all a part of the CTD sound. This EP is a journey from the Dust Bowl through midlife crisis to the local bar on the weekend. We hope you enjoy it!

Album Notes
Cross the Dog is a rockin' Americana band based in Illinois. Sometimes we might break out a mandolin, a banjo, or a cajon - sometimes it's a roaring Les Paul, Strat, or Tele turned up to 11! If you like variety, then you will absolutely love CTD!

Strange band name, you ask? Here's the story:

1903 - Tutwiler, MS - Waiting for a train that was hours late, the father of the blues W.C. Handy described an incident. He heard an old man singing and playing the guitar. The man was dragging a knife blade across the strings -- singing over and over again, "Goin' where the Southern Cross the Dog". The man's lyric was answered by the groaning sound of the metal strings of his guitar.

Though Cross the Dog counts blues among our influences, we also bring rock, country, and bluegrass into the mix for an original sound. When presented with a new idea, most bands ask "Why?" Cross the Dog asks "Why not?" We hope you have as much enjoyment listening to our tracks as we did creating them!
