Crosstree creates guitar-driven pop rock with an edge. The project explores the concepts of belief and endurance through provocative lyrics surrounded by soaring guitars, propulsive bass, and dynamic drums. Crosstree songs delve into what it means to trust and be trustworthy in the face of adversity. They encourage listeners to see failure not as the end of the road, but as an opportunity for growth. Crosstree is reminiscent of rock acts such as Anberlin, Eve 6, and Third Eye Blind in its anthemic and melodic stylings. The guitars take their cue from Def Leppard’s tasty riffs and Joe Satriani’s supersonic tone.

Faith That Leaps
“Faith That Leaps” is inspired by a young 2nd century slave girl named Blandina, who was tortured and put to death for refusing to compromise her beliefs. Even though she was seen as too weak to amount to anything, she showed a resiliency of faith that astounded even her persecutors. Instead of surrendering to the pain, she surrender to the grace she believed and showed was able to carry to death and beyond without losing hope.
