Biography

DCP was created by Don Cross and Susan Krebs in Phoenix, Arizona in 2000 as a studio band to record music for a musical Don had written. The musical was called "The Susan Chronicles". "It is based on some life experiences that Don and Susan shared mixed with fantasy" said Don. From 2000 to 2003, DCP recorded 4 full-length CD's. The song styles found on the CD's ran the gambit from metal to gospel. "I wanted to play all the different styles that I enjoyed and not be locked into one sound" said Don about DCP's music. After some good responses by friends and family to the recordings, Don and Susan decided to turn DCP into a full-time recording and performing group. Steve and Mary had been part of the recording project since 2000 and were a natural fit to join DCP full-time. After a few temporary guitarist sat in with the band, DCP finally found a permanant guitarist from the Indian Reservation named Arrow. DCP started performing live in the Phoenix area in February of 2005 and have done 30 shows so far to rave reviews. The band has a double-CD of new music to be released in 2006 and plans to continue playing as many live shows as possible. "We won't stop until we reach our goal, world domination"

Lyrics

Place In Heaven

Written By: Don Cross

Lord, I have fallen
And I need your saving grace
God, I trampled through your garden
Do you still have a place, for me?

Do I have hope?
Do I have time?
To redeem myself
And find my place in heaven

Lord, can you hear me calling?
Or am I alone in my disgrace?
God, show me I’m not forgotten
And that you still have a place, for me

Lord, I can hear you calling
I feel your warm embrace
God, I’m glad I’m not forgotten
And that you still have a place, for me

Now I have hope
And I have time
I can redeem myself
I have a place in heaven
