Joshua Cross is a Canadian Christian band with a heart for today’s youth – lead vocalist and band founder Joshua Cross aka Keith Murphy writes deep spiritual songs that address the social issues of our day - having lived through a number of these issues himself, Joshua has a passion for today’s world. Growing up without a mom or dad was a hard road for Joshua, but he chose to learn from it and today he uses his experiences to help others. He founded The Joshua Cross Band to bring that message of hope and healing to the world - Joshua describes his songs as a “healing for the nations”.

Music was always a part of Joshua’s life - at the age of 13 he started his first band called Narrow Express. The band played mostly cover songs but also some originals. After three years the band spilt up and went their separate ways. Joshua felt it was for the best, but with music still stirring his heart he picked up guitar & piano and started working as a solo artist, playing a variety of gigs including playing live on CBC TV. Doors were opening for him and people were starting to hear his message.

At the age of 19, after just getting out from the Newfoundland orphanage that was his home, Joshua moved to Ontario with a band he had put together and started to play around the G.T.A in the hopes of being “discovered”. Things became hard being far from home, and not having much money they sometimes found themselves playing on the streets of Toronto for their next meal. Feeling very much alone and that things were not working out, they all headed back to Newfoundland.

In 1993 the band reconnected, but after a short while Joshua was again on his own, but still committed to his vision, and it was then that Joshua formed The Joshua Cross Band – a band that would sing from Joshua’s own personal Christian faith the answers that he knew the world was longing to hear, the message of Jesus Christ, God’s love and salvation.

The Joshua Cross Band has had shows at a variety of establishments - in Newfoundland, Kigali Rwanda and throughout the GTA, in venues such as CBC TV (St. John’s NL) The Church of Jesus Christ (Kigali Rwanda), Club Rocket (Toronto), The Opera house(Toronto), Peoples Church (Hamilton), East Hamilton Pentecostal Church (Hamilton)and a many other community events.

In summer 2005 The Joshua Cross Band had the chance to play in Kigali Rwanda in Africa for the orphan children. Keith describes it as a life-changing experience. In April 21/2007 The Joshua Cross Band opened for Grammy nominated artist Sarah Kelly.

Joshua continues to craft songs with much of the material drawn from his personal experiences in regards to family, humanity and mortality. Together with his wife, Keith recently launched a charity called Shelter Them - - which was started after seeing in person the aftermath of the 1994 Rwandan genocide.

The Joshua Cross Band is the fulfillment of a vision, a band with an uncompromising desire to minister to our world, through music, from the heart to the heart.
