"Look Both Ways" 2008



As a seasoned musician and artist, Keith “Fathom” Cross is no stranger to the music game. With a diverse musical background (Brazilian jazz?), he is one of the few artists who succeeds at delivering fresh lyrics that inspire, encourage, and above all, entertain.

A Los Angeles native and a graduate of USC, Keith admits that the road thus far has had its fair share of detours. “After graduating from USC, I took what I thought would be a part time job as a substitute teacher to pay the bills while I pursued my music career. I ended up having a passion for it, working full-time for a few years, side-lining music, and almost becoming a permanent teacher. But it wasn't in the plans.” After just a few years on the job, Keith realized that, while he was more than a capable teacher, his calling was music. “When I stopped pursuing music, something in me started to die. True story – I started going bald.” But then something seemingly divine happened. An old friend invited him to go on tour with her band – in London. Six months later, Keith Cross emerged with a new album, a revitalized spirit, and a renewed commitment to his craft, and a full head of hair.

Keith’s sophomore project, Look Both Ways, is a riveting collection of hip-hop, soul, funk, and jazz. Look Both Ways delivers an album that rivals the best of the best in both the hip-hop and neo-soul genres. From the bluesy ballad of “Charmaine” to the politically-tinged “Policeman’s Soul” to the rhapsodic “Beautiful Thang”, Look Both Ways highlights Keith’s stunning skills as a writer, artist, and performer.
