Feeling a bit camera shy


Born in Adelaide, South Australia, Selena Cross grew up with a musical family and learned to play piano by ear at the age of 5. Practicing at 'Nana Annie's' house with the only piano around at the time, the weekend visits to Semaphore were some of the fondest memories Selena recalls. "I think the piano needs tuning!", Selena would exclaim every weekend. This was however an excuse to have the piano tuner come, just so she could hear him play at the end of the tuning session.

"I would watch him, look at his hands and posture, and notice how his fingers would dance like butterflies up and down the keys. I eagerly waited for the dramatic Low C, High C final chord! When he left, I would play frilly '5 year old' made up symphonies. It sounded awful, but I would always try to get the Low C, High C ending just right."

Selena's passion for music and drive never wavered and in 1998 she moved to Melbourne with a demo of her original songs in hand. In search of a listening ear, and she found many, she met Buzz Bidstrup (The Angels, Gangagang) who would go on to produce 'Strip', Selena's first CD.

'Strip', with its earthy/acoustic pop style, was picked up by GCG Music (US) in 2003. This distribution deal introduced Selena Cross to the US and Canadian market and with an ever growing global online audience 'Strip' was soon being enjoyed internationally thanks to iTunes, and CDBaby. With a fan base growing all over the globe, but not concentrated in any one place, Selena decided it was the right time to start a family with husband and sound designer Paul Hitchens.

One more project Selena squeezed in before the birth of her son was a cover of 'Land Down Under' for the 2004 compilation release 'Women At Work'. For the production Selena chose renowned Australian songwriter and producer Richard Pleasance.

"I was pregnant at the time, so Richard and I were emailing each other mp3's back and forth. I remember being insistent on one thing.... no flute! I didn't see the point in regurgitating the original, and Richard has such a great style, I wanted that to shine too!" Selena recalls.

After time off dedicated to raising her son Sam, Selena came back with a follow up EP 'The Meaning In Sunnyville'(2006). Also produced by Richard Pleasance, it shares the continuing journey in Selena's career. From this EP 'Do As The Angels Do' has been picked up by Nova FM and ABC while 'Silence' from her debut 'Strip' has enjoyed international airplay.

Selena is currently writing and new demos can be heard at “Myspace has changed my life” Selena says, “I now have a great manager in Paul Rodger and we have been talking to Grammy winning producers and major labels about my next album. I am excited about the future and love sharing this journey with my myspace fans. They have supported me since day one and I have a lot to thank them for”.
