THE CROSSING A natural progression in the key of "C". Founded at Pioneer Park, Lincoln, Nebraska What would you have me say about this? We have always said it in our music.

What makes this one so special is it marks years of music together, and reflects the diversity of the singing and writing team of Scot Free, Tom O'Brien, and Tim Halligan. This leg of "The Crossing" project started in when Scot traveled to Georgetown, DC to meet Tom. There
they laid down some basic tracks that were later to become the building blocks for this compilation of songs. At Tim's urging, a recording session was set in Chicago. There they recruited Bobby Scumaci, (keyboardist for Dave Mason's Band) to assist in the production. ..... Scot Free

I think it's all about going back to our roots. Going back to where we came from musically, CSN&Y, America, Carol King, James Taylor, Jimmie Page, and Bob Dylan. Later it was the blues of Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, and Santana that most influenced us. Today there are so many badges ,name tags, labels attached to styles of music. When we started playin' the scene was acoustically influenced. And to this day that style of music still is the most appealing to me. "I feel that this music was and always will be from the heart. still has a strong beat.....
