Elsa Cross: Highway Bound

On the long road from Austin, Elsa Cross is making her way to The Saint in Asbury Park on Aug. 12 as part of her summer tour. Cross’ long setlist, which includes songs off her debut album, Unavailable (2008), and her self-titled record released in 2011, gives off a consistent bluesy undertone with haunting breathy vocals typical of old Midwestern country and Americana. With lyrics filled with omnipresent heartache by the number, Cross’ songs carry with them her intense passion for her music. Elsa Cross will also be appearing at Skinny Dennis in Brooklyn on Aug. 7, and at the Rodeo Bar in NY on Aug. 8.
