Vincent Cross is a song poet whose catalogue of critically acclaimed albums draw from the purest of mountain springs to urban Americana. A truly international troubadour, he was born in Dublin, raised in Australia and is now based in New York City, where he often performs solo on his trusty vintage Martin guitar. He has performed for and shared the stage with a diverse range of artists including Oscar winner Glen Hansard (Once), Folk Legend Odetta, Damien Rice (O), Michael Daves (w/Chris Thiele), Rory McLeod (UK), Ron Kavana (The Pogues) Lloyd Cole (Of the Commotions), James Reams & The Barnstormers, and master blues picker Roy Book Binder (USA). He has toured extensively from both coasts of the US, UK, Europe and Australia from the Long Island Bluegrass Festival (USA) to Greystones Americana Festival (IRE).

Cross’s eponymous 6-track EP was recorded in the Isle of Man in 2002, which lead to his inclusion in internationally renowned DJ Jon Richards’s lauded Irish releases, Inundations and Undercurrents. Considered by many to capture a high-water mark in contemporary Irish songwriting, and whose impressive line up reads like a whose who of the Irish music scene with tracks from: Hothouse Flowers, Ron Sexsmith, The Devlins, Don Baker, Gemma Hayes, Eleanor McEvoy, Cara Dillon, Mary Black & the Sawdoctors.
