Biography

Have you suddenly been laid off of a job that you have had for 20 years? Have you had a crippling injury that has shaken your faith? Have you struggled with the temptations of this world? These are just a few personal circumstances that have inspired the most recent original compositions by CrossWalk.
CrossWalk, is a well-known Contemporary Christian band based out of Boston, MA. It is comprised of five very talented men. Their blend of musical styles, soulful gospel influences, modern contemporary sound, as well as re-arrangements of traditional hymns have earned them well deserved recognition. These special qualities have given them access to a variety of venues, as they have the unique ability to appeal to the musical tastes of both young and old. The heart and soul of this dynamic ensemble is the all-male, vocal harmonies and professional instrumentation that give CrossWalk their very unique sound.

CrossWalk first assembled in 1992 as a worship team at the Wollaston Church of the Nazarene in Quincy, MA. The core members quickly realized that they were called to music ministry beyond the four walls of their local church. Each member had a passion for music and felt that it was the perfect way to minister the good news of the Gospel.

Early CrossWalk music took on a decidedly gospel feel, showcasing a more traditional songwriting style and keyboard driven sound. Their songwriting and music has over time evolved into a more contemporary sound. In the mid 90’s, CrossWalk recorded their first self-titled CD, "CrossWalk".

By the end of the 90’s CrossWalk evolved into the five-piece format of today; with the all-male vocals of Charlie Burt, Jim Hammer and Don Sautter backed by piano, synth, electric and bass guitars, sax and drums. New to the mix was the talent and energy of bassist Russ Bedard. CrossWalk’s second CD offering, Faith Like a Child, featured a variety original and contemporary Christian compositions.

In 2004, CrossWalk released a third album, "Shine". This “Best of CrossWalk” CD includes new live recordings and showcases Jim Hammer’s recording and orchestrating talents. Later that same year, Sands Marshall joined the group. Sands’ mastery of the drums and percussion furthered the evolution of CrossWalk’s sound and style.

The current sound of CrossWalk can best be captured in the just released CD "Sight Unseen". The sound is refreshingly upbeat, original, and stands out against much of what is heard today. God has deeply blessed this group with many talents that their desire is to use this God given talent to help share the good news of the Gospel and help listeners develop a personal and closer realtionship with Jesus Christ!
