ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CROSSING
In the mid-1800s, the young son of a wealthy Scottish merchant fell in love with the household’s maid. His father, concerned that the son would waste his time in a dalliance with a girl below his class, sent the maid away. The son threatened to leave home if the father didn’t reconsider. The father refused, and the son left Edinburgh, bound for America. He would never return.
Months later, the girl showed up on the merchant’s doorstep, the son’s baby in her arms. She was sick and dying, and the baby was now the merchant’s responsibility. The merchant raised the child as his own son, until his 18th birthday, when the truth was told. And then, the young man knew he had to come to America to find his father.
He arrived in New England, but the trail was cold. The young man didn’t know that his father had changed his name to keep from being found, to spite his own father. And eventually the young man found himself working in a mill, alongside so many other Scottish immigrants.
One day, in a chance conversation, the young man told his story to the mill foreman, and the foreman’s response was life changing.
“I think I know your father,” the foreman said. “He’s the man who owns this mill.”
This is the true story of how the Morrisons came to America. The true story behind Crossing.

Michel Griffin

A rich, inventive album
What struck me first about this album is its enormously high production values. It is stunningly well arranged and produced. From the opening percussive, relentless drive of the title track to the album's accomplished, nostalgic finale, the music is beautifully presented. My personal favorite is probably 'Sideways', but there's something for everyone here: from the epic 'Apollo' to the tongue-in-cheek 'Pop Song', this album is packed with rich, inventive narrative and memorable, instantly appealing melodies. I've been listening to it in the car for months and I still hear something new with every listen.
