ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

Going To Lift My Voice is the first album by Cross Current, an Americana duo uniting singer/songwriters Ken Zimmerman and Steve Gibson. The album features 14 original songs with themes ranging from love, friendship, and the natural world to social issues such as homelessness, ecology, and the struggles of working folks. Cross Current is rooted in the folk tradition of making songs that matter, while incorporating musical elements from blues, gospel, and rock to tell contemporary stories of struggle and hope. Cross Current came together out of the belief that music can make a difference in our lives and in our world. Going to Lift My Voice is an attempt to express that belief in song.
